Castle 'Novigrad na Dobri' - 3
Croatia

Although there is no reliable data which would determine the year of castle construction, it was most probably built during 15th century by duke Bernardin Frankopan. It was built as a fortress guarding the road and the crossing on river Dobra on the main rout from central Croatia towards the Adriatic coast.

The castle remained in possesion of the noble Frankopan family until 1671. and the fall of this family, that followed after an unsuccessful rebellion against Habsburg rule, event known in Croatian history as a 'Zrinski–Frankopan Conspiracy'. The castle was then plundered by soldiers under the command of Baron Sauer.

The castle changes several owners, and in period 1746 - 1809, Baron Stjepan Patačić restores it as a Baroque Manor. In 1783. the castle was visited by the Emperor Joseph II, during his trip towards the Adriatic sea. On that occasion, Baroness Patačić set a memorial board at the entrance of the castle in the honor of Emperors visit. The board went missing during WWII, when the castle was burned and destroyed. Reconstruction of the castle began in 1999.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
