Great location. Fabulous history. The castle is still privately owned. There is a nice sculpture exhibition in the castle gardens. The main building is not restored but that gives it a character.

You feel like you belong to something bigger than this moment. Prepare yourself, read a little about Ostrožac past, bring your kids, sit on the acient walls and just talk about what you read.

It’s a nice historical place to visit and see the old building The castle is consist of different parts From the fist entrance until the end of the living area rooms Also you can see the view of nature of the city there ?? There is some one selling water, coffee, ice cream ?,juices ?? The main issue there is the w/c Toilet ? it’s not good at all, it’s not advised to use it because it’s horrible and not clean, so use other toilet before going there

It's a very nice and calming place with breathtaking views .... Nature all around..... interesting stone sculptures and old castle ..... a small caffe is waiting with coffe , ice cream and cold beverages ... Lots of free parking spaces and 4 KM entrance fee for adults . Advice for parents ..... take good care of children when walking in that old building

Didn't think much of this place but I changed my mind after the visit. The castle has not been renovated for a while and additionaly ruined during the war. Entrance fee of 4KM (2KM for kids) is probably only used to run the basic comodities (toilet, small shop, kids playground...). Still, on a nice day, you can spend a fun couple of hours here, and learn a bit about the local history.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
