The fortress is in the center of city and its nice to walk around. Every year it is more reconstructed. A part of it is still in use ( museum )

There's a small museum but it's more of the site itself. It's huge and they've partially reconstructed part of it while others are rebuilt. It's amazing it was never actually used.

This is one of the best preserved fortresses of its kind, but still needs to be renovated. Works are progressing and a part has been restored. It is a fort used for protection against the Ottomans and tells interesting stories of some (in)famous Croatian fighting...More

I love this place and I always visit the fortress every time I visit Slavonski Brod! It changes every visit as the renovations continue and new displays are developed. The site is still free admission and it represents an almost mythical period in Croatian history.
