Dubovac Castle is the oldest Karlovac monument, not just because of its ample history, but also because of the pioneer decision to preserve it in the name of collective memory. Namely, since 1896, it has already been in the possession of the municipality and open to the public. Its reconstruction from 1952 to 1961 was managed by Greta Jurišić on behalf of the Croatian Conservation Institute. As its owner, the Karlovac City Museum managed Dubovac from 1965 to 2007 and is currently using the defense tower with a belvedere, which was also the venue of the exhibition titled “Around the Rivers of Kupa and Korana”, by authors Lazo Čučković and Željko Kovačić.

Dubovac was named after the once existing oak (dub) forest that surrounded it, and the name was subsequently transferred to a contemporary city neighborhood on the outskirts of Karlovac. Just as they used to say in the 16th century, “Karlovac under Dubovac”, because Dubovac was older and better known, so to this day the castle on the hill above the Kupa River is the most prominent landmark of the cultural and historical landscape of Karlovac, with a view of it opening up from the highway.
