While traveling through the area of northern Croatia, amongst hills planted with vine, you will as well travel through Croatian medieval history. Aim of our excursion is to show beauty of most known Croatian castles and the old city of Varaždin.
VELIKI TABOR CASTLE
standing alone at the top of the hill, offers eclectic mix of architectural styles, including late-Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Construction of the castle first began in the 12th century, and continued through the ages, particularly in the 15th and 16th century. A chapel hides female skull and legend about love story between son of the owner and beautiful girl Veronika of Desinić.
is one of the northern Croatia's premier attractions. Built beside a lake, it looks like out of a fairy tale - there's even a drawbridge. The castle was built in the 13th century,
but gained its current, neo-Gothic style in the 19th century when it was owned by Count Juraj V. Drašković.
A tour of the castle will take visitors past restored 19th-century furnishings bearing the castle's coat of arms, as well as centuries-old weapons, tapestries and portraits in the knight's room, hunting room and music salon.
still has the architecture and style for which it became known as the “capital of baroque”. Mentioned for the first time in 12th century, Varaždin enjoyed its golden age during 17th and 18th centuries when it was the capital city of Croatia.
The shining star of Varaždin is Renaissance-style castle, called Old town - Stari Grad. Today here stands a historical museum enjoying the status of UNESCO protected site.
