Hotel Frankopan: The Newly renovated Hotel in Ogulin, Croatia
This small four-star hotel situated in the town centre is housed in a building that was built in the 18th century for the local administration. It was extended in the 19th century, and converted at the end of that century as a hotel and hospitality area and has now been renovated once again, respecting all conservationist regulations.
In the vicinity of the hotel is the 16th century Frankopan Castle ( see left photo) and so it has itself been declared a cultural monument and judged to be a building of exceptional urban architecture and historical significance. It is surrounded by a stunning landscape and views over the picturesque valley of the Dobra River and the mystical Mount Klek, the inspiration of many fairy tales and stories.
Ogulin is the right spot for people looking for a quiet vacation. Pleasant strolls in the town where Croatian writer Ivana Brlic Mažuranic was born in 1874, leave a deep impression on visitors any time of the year, but especially during the Ogulin festival of fairy tales, traditionally held for two days in June.
While staying in Hotel Frankopan, an active outdoor holiday can be organised, with extreme sports or exploration of the natural beauty. There is also an offer of mountain biking on mapped cycling trails, horseback riding, diving, hiking, speleological excursions and mountain climbing. A trip to nearby Lake Sabljaci, to the valley of Dobra River or to the 20 kilometre distant Bjelolasica with its ski trails, is also on offer.
