The World War II memorial sculpture dedicated to the people of Moslavina during World War II seems abandoned and neglected, in the middle of nowhere it rises proud and alone, awesome tribute.

Really outstanding monument built in the 70s to commemorate the national liberation war (ww2). It's in pretty good shape, just some graffiti. It's about 1 hour from Zagreb. Space for parking on site. Looks like it's not really in use anymore. However it sits atop a hill overlooking the village and lake. It's definitely one of the best monuments to see in ex-Yugoslavia. Highly recommend a visit if you're into this stuff. Accurate location using Google Maps.

One of the most unique monuments from former Yugoslavia. The monument is at the top a hill, giving a beautiful view to the village. It also commemorates the fight and struggle to save the world from Nazism. The monument could be better maintained and it is definitely worth a visit.

Hidden and forgotten monument built in former Yugoslavia after the WWII. It is one of the many scattered along the ex-yu. Really impressive. In my opinion worth seeing and visiting.

I'm shocked that there's so little people who visit the monument. It's a short 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes drive to a little town east of Zagreb. Wonderful design, beautiful walkway and breathtaking view of the new nearby Villa Grac lake and area. If you have the time, highly recommended to visit and enjoy a few hours out there, can also grab a drink or lunch at Villa Grac down the road.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
