German title: Brinje, Die Adelsburg Sokolac
The medieval Sokolac castle was once the seat of the mighty Princes of Krk (the House of Frankopan) in the Lika region. Underneath the castle’s strong walls, the town of Brinje has developed during the unsettled centuries. Its monumental architecture and a history of visiting royalties and other notable historical make it a valuable heritage site of historical and artistic importance.
A two-storey Court Chapel of the Holy Trinity is the most important and best preserved example of Late Gothic church architecture in continental Croatia. Its rehabilitation began during the 1960s. Croatian Conservation Institute managed the comprehensive conservation-restoration work to rehabilitate and present the chapel. A permanent exhibition was mounted, presenting the Sokolac complex and the role of the Princes of Krk in Croatian history.
