Explore Hrvatska Kostajnica

In the center of Pounje there is a small pearl of Croatian Christianity - Hrvatska Kostajnica. The first records of churches and chapels in this area, raised by the Franciscans who are still present here, date from the 14th century.

SACRAL HERITAGE

The first churches and chapels were raised in Hrvatska Kostajnica by Franciscans in 1334. During the turbulent history of this area, much of these sacral buildings were destroyed, and today only the remains of the walls and altars are preserved on locations surrounded by beautiful nature.

In a busy everyday life, sometimes there is a need to move away from everything. Kostajnica is an excellent choice for that - near to Zagreb, surrounded by natural and historical beauty. Come see for yourself.
