Jewish community in Karlovac excisted from the second half of the 19th century when Ashkenazic Jweish immigrants from Hungary, Bohemia, Moravia and Austria moved south to Croatia. The Jewish quarter, called Zidovska varos, had synagogue designed and built in 1870-1871 by Ernest Muehlbauer. During WW II it was used as a warehouse and totally devastated. Finaly, the synagogue was torn down around 1960 since survived Jews never came back to Karlovac.
The Jewish Cemetery at Velika Svarca/Dubovac, dates from 1816. It has fine Ceremonial Hall and about 200 monuments. The property was nationalized in 1958 and protected as a historical landmark.

Goat farm along Mrežnica River
I love goats because my granny used to have one at her home for a milking. Actually goat is the first animal I got to know as a kid. Goats are pretty smart and very friendly, as far as I remember it, and giving the best quality of milk.
This small farm along Mrežnica river brought back some nice memories to me.
there is a spring near the river, where you can drink fresh water that runs from the rocks.
on the picture is an old woman that lives nearby. she is getting water for herself and her old husband, because there is no water supply line in the area.
the old mill
these kind of mills have been used until not so long ago. this one is in pretty bad shape, but with a little bit of imagination, it turns into a beautiful memory of some past times when people were living of it's work
