Little town of Drivenik is located near the castle of the Frankopans, one of the very few that are preserved, which offers view of the northern part of Vinodol.
The citadel of Drivenik is uninhabited; all inhabitants moved to the foot of the hill. On the hill remained a lonely castle from the 13th century, St. Dujam’s parish church, St. Stephen’s Church from the 15th century, parish house and an old school which was attended by many generations of people from Drivenik. The castle of Drivenik was once entered over a hinged bridge stretching over a dug up moat. The castle was defended by high walls, four corner towers and a semicircular bastion.
THE CASTLE :
Once upon a time, the castle of Drivenik was entered over a mobile bridge built over a dug-up moat filled with water. Great castle in the shape of a square was defended by high walls and four round corner towers, as well as a semicircular bastion. Wooden corridor built for defense purposes was located in a high place around the walls. At the end of the corridor was the door which led into corner towers, and the stairs from the towers led into the inside of the castle. Within the castle there were tenements, magazines, basements and a water tank. Drivenik is mentioned in Vinodol Codex dating from 1288 – the signatories of the Codex were, among others, people of Drivenik.
