The event is taking place as part of the European project “Fortitude” with the aim of attracting visitors to heritage localities, with interpretive walks and tours.

Admission is free to programmes to be organised at Trsat Castle, Grobnik Castle, Bakar Castle, Nova Kraljevica Castle, Bribir Castle, Zrinski Castle in Čabar and Zrinski Castle at Brod na Kupi.

The organisers – Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, local government units and tourism boards and museums, said that 30 April marks the death of Croatian noblemen Petar Zrinski and Fran Krsto Frankopan, calling on visitors to attend the Night of the Fortresses event.

The project “The Routes of the Frankopans”, promoting the heritage of the Frankopan family, was launched by Primorje-Gorski Kotar County in 2005 with the aim of restoring, protecting and ensuring the sustainable use of that noble family’s tangible and non-tangible heritage.

The project covers 17 castles and three sacral buildings located in the area from Krk via Vinodol to Gorski Kotar.

The Routes of the Frankopans is the biggest cultural project in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, worth more than HRK 67 million. Since 2017 it has been co-financed by the EU.

A hiking trail with 41 control points will be launched on Saturday at Kaštel Gradec on Krk island, where the Frankopan family hails from.
