Old Town Žumberak – Gradina

Two castles have once been a part of the great Žumberak area – the Old Town Gradina and the New Town Sichelburg.

History of the Old Town dates back to the middle ages when this castle was built because of its significant strategic location.

Unfortunatelly, the Old Town has been destroyed by the end of 15supth/sup century during the Turkish attacks. The restauration process has begun in the 1980s and since that we can enjoy visiting the renewed ruins of the Old Town – Gradina.
