Castle Krupa ruins

Print Add to travel planner
Not far from the spring of the river Krupa and roughly 4 km out of Semič, the Krupa Castle, one of the largest castles in Bela krajina, once spread out. This was a mighty construction with thick walls, which were reinforced with five towers in Valvasor times. Later the castle was rebuilt into a square multi-storey fortrees with four corner towers and inner arcades. Sevearl castle buildings were located in the vicinity: blacksmith¨s cottage, hayrack, stable and granary. However, in 1942 the castle was burned down by the partisans to prevent the enemy from occupying it. After the war, the locals used the stones to renovate and build their homes, therefore, only the ruins of the castle¨s granary have been preserved.
