Historical happenings in this area are mostly connected with constant warfare concerning borders and defense from Turkish invasion, which is why the area hadn’t developed as a market town or a settlement, but rather as a defensive fort, especially Drežnik Grad (Drežnik Castle).”

Establishment
“For Baračeve špilje (Baraceve caves) the plural is really appropriate. There are numerous caves which may be visited: Donja Baračeva špilja, Nova Baračeva špilja, Gornja Baračeva špilja, and Otvaranje špilja. The show cave is Gornja Baračeva špilja, which is 520m long, but only 200m are visited on the tour. The visitors are equipped with helmets and electric torches. It seems the local caving club interpreted the term "torch" literally: electric handlamps were installed in bamboo garden toches. At least they are so huge, they cant slip your mind. The river Suvaja, which runs close to the cave, is a true karst river. It disappears in a swallow hole only a few hundred meters downstream, just to reappear in a karst spring another 200m further. ”

Art Museum
“The Homeland War Museum in Turanj is the most recent Karlovac museum. This impressive glass construction guards and preserves the original structure of the so-called California building, as well as the arms collection, photographs and various items from the Homeland War (the Croatian War of Independence). A part of the arms collection consists of a unique open-air museum, under the skies that remember all the wars in this area. And there were way too many of them. The history of Turanj is closely connected to the history of the Karlovac fort, as its outpost used to defend the Korana and Mrežnica bridges leading into the town. It was names after the ‘turans’, wooden guard towers erected along the Korana banks.”
