In the center of Pounje is the symbol of Croatian Christianity - Hrvatska Kostajnica. Namely, the first records of churches and chapels in this area, built by the Franciscans, date back to the 14th century. Although during the turbulent history of this area a large part of these sacral buildings was destroyed, today the remains of walls and altars are preserved in places surrounded by beautiful nature.
Hrvatska Kostajnica is a town of turbulent history, sacred tradition (especially when it comes to celebrating Christmas and Easter) and natural beauty. Take a walk through Santa's forest and discover a local legend, try Kostajnica braids and don't miss drinking water at the famous Tekija well.
In a busy everyday life, sometimes you need to get away from everything. Kostajnica is an excellent choice for this - near Zagreb, surrounded by natural and historical beauties. Come and see for yourself.
