Total Croatia News

Sokolac Castle is located in Brinje in the Lika region. It is named after the Croatian word for hawk (sokol), which appears on the town’s coat of arms.

It dates back to medieval times, while the town was later owned by the noble Frankopan and Gorjanski families. The castle was part of an important medieval fortified city held by the Frankopan family.

Sokolac Castle was an extremely grand building, dominated by the powerful perpendiculars of the entry tower, and the Chapel of the Holy Trinity. Entry into the burg was through a square, three-story tower, making it a unique specimen in all of Central Europe.
