A gymnasium is the Croatian equivalent of a U.S. prep school, and the Gymnasium Karlovac (or the Higher Real Gymnasium, as it is sometimes called) can trace its physical construction to 1863, and its educational origins as far back as 1766.

One of the gymnasium's most notable alumnus is Nikola Tesla, who went to school here from 1870 to 1873 (graduating a year early). It was due to his encounters with an inspiring physics professor that Tesla pursued mechanical engineering and invention.

The Gymnasium Karlovac remains in operation to this day.
