The town of Karlovac as the centre of the county was founded on the land of the counts of Zrinski in the sixteenth century. It was built as a military fortification, the fortress wall that protected Croatia and Europe against the Ottoman invasion. The town of Karlovac was built below the old fort of Dubovac as an "ideal" fortified settlement on a site where the river Korana flows into the Kupa. It was designed as a regular hexgon with triangular bastions which form a six pointed star, and intended as a shield against the advance of the Turks. Along the fortress wall this magnificent ancient Croatian town has grown for centuries, and also today during the homeland war, as a breastwork of Croatia and plume of partiotism. The town of Karlovac is nowdays the political, cultural and economic centre of the County of Karlovac connecting and uniting northern and southern Croatia. It is the town of rich cultural heritage, harmonious architecture and splendid countryside which attracts visitors from all over the country. The town of Karlovac and the whole County began its economic development in the middle of the last century and some firms established then have been succesfully doing business for more than a century. Culture (the First Croatian Choral Society "Zora", Zorin dom, the First Croatian Library), art (the first Music School in this part of Europe), education (the Karlovac Grammar School), and sport (Croatian Falcon) have always been highly appreciated in this town. A walk through the parks and lines of trees will offer you a fine blend of nature and human creativity. The Beer Festival is a traditional ten day long event in Karlovac at the end of summer. It is a kind of harvest festival, in which the central place is occupied by the best known product of Karlovac, beer. Nowhere in Croatia is beer so celebrated as in Karlovac. During the Beer Festival, consequently, it is not only lovers of malt and hops that come together in Karlovac, but also those who enjoy a good time and good company. That is one of the reasons why the International Folk Festival took place at this time and at this place.
