Brod na Kupi

The cultural and historical town of Brod na Kupi is located right next to Kupa river. Brod na Kupi when translated means the boat on the Kupa. The bridge over Kupa river was built in 1809. Today it is a border crossing with the Republic of Slovenia. This beautiful small town has a shop, a primary school, a hotel and an exquisite baker shop. In the center of the town, there is a castle, which is part of the protected cultural heritage of Croatia. The caste was built in 1651 by Petar Zrinski (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petar_Zrinski). In 1670 Petar Zrinski also built the baroque church of St. Mary Magdalene with defensive walls. This preserved historical site reveals the importance of Zrinski ruler in this area. Zrinski also formed Brod na Kupi as an administrative and the judiciary center of Gorski Kotar at the time. The Kupa valley is an ideal place for an active holiday with the possibility of white water rafting. Nearby you can also visit Zeleni Vir (Green Whirpool) a geomorphological nature reserve which is ideal for cycling and unforgettable leisure walks. Sports fishermen can participate in ‘catch & release’ of brown trout (Salmo trutta), Grayling (Thymallus thymallus)
