Ružica City

The great Orahovica fortress or, even more popular, Ružica city is one of the largest preserved forted cities in Croatia. The hinterland is protected by a mountain and rocky forests. It provides a view of the distant horizon. All this testifies to the culture from the Middle Ages until the 20th century. There is no accurate information about its origin and creator, but it is believed that it was built before 1220. The fortress was unconquerable – it could not have been threatened by swords, spears or axes due to its strategic location, towers and loopholes. It had places for masters, soldiers, workshops, ceremonial halls and more. In the stories of Ružica both good and evil, harmony and disharmony were mentioned- that is how the legends were created. One of the legends revolves around a nobleman who wanted to build a castle on the fairies’ meeting place, but it was in vain because the fairies demolished all that he built. Later, the nobleman was killed by a stone from the tower in which Ružica was walled up in.
