The medieval town of Brseč has to this day retained its original appearance and medieval spirit. Its walls, bell tower and fortress were built in the early Middle Ages, and the construction of family homes began in the 17th century. Brseč is known for these amenities: the parish church of St. George, the church of St. Cross, the church of St. Stephen, the church of St. Magdalene (which offers an unforgettable view), Mašunerije – a residence with many rooms, toš – an olive mill from the 17th century, etc. Brseč also boasts the birthplace of Eugen Kumičić, Croatian politician and writer, which is located at the city entrance. Kumičić’s house was turned into a library and a beautiful gallery “Eugen K”. Ljubo de Karina lives only two kilometres away from Brseč. He is a famous painter whose sculptures are exhibited all over Croatia and the world, and we definitely recommend visiting the gallery and the studio.
