Zwiling Castle

Zwiling Castle

Crna mlaka, Jastrebarsko

This complex of the villa, gardens and accompanying buildings was erected in the period from 1914–1920 in the centre of a marshland, which in the early 20th century was slowly being turned into the Crna Mlaka fish ponds. The estate was leased to Kornelius Zwilling in 1905. The castle was designed by architect J. Deutsch (1917) in the late Art Nouveau/Art Deco style. Today, this castle stands in the middle of the Crna Mlaka Special Ornithological Reserve near Jastrebarsko.
