The old town Slovin
In the early 15th century, Slunj was first mentioned as a settlement on the opposite bank of the Slunjčica river, roughly on the area of todays Zrinski and Frankopan square. The core of the settlement was the Franciscan monastery and the church, probably on the site of todays parish church, and a number of buildings around the town square, which were surrounded by walls on the southern, as well as the western unprotected side. Defensive walls of this medieval settlement were completely destroyed.
Although they were divided by a deep canyon and their only connection was a bridge across the Slunjčica, the feudal town of Slunj and the settlement adjoining it together formed a uniquehistoric, strategic and functional living space until the end of the 16th century, when the settlement was completely destroyed after the attack of the Turks.
