The old fortress that has been a point of defense against Turks centuries ago. In reconstruction (2020.)

If you are in Podgarić definitely check out Garić Grad. You can reach it with the car.

Great for short hiking walk, definitely worth to visit if you're around.

Strsljenac! Nice drive to get to it but there is a giant hornet's nest on the ruin! You can barely approach it.

Awesome old ruins over 500 years old on a big hill surrounded by beautiful forest.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
