Medvedgrad is a ruined medieval fortress on the lower slopes of Medvednica, the wooded hills just north of the Croatian capital. A popular detour for those hiking or driving through these hills, it also hosts a small annual medieval festival, during which this image was taken. The Croatian currency (the Kuna) is named after the pine marten, the pelts of which were used as a trading unit in Medieval times.
