castles of northern croatia private tour
Description

Take a one day private tour from Zagreb and visit Trakošćan castle. Surrounded by thick forest and placed above the lake, Trakošćan castle stands in mystery and waits for you to discover all its stories. Afterwards, get lost in the streets of Croatia's hidden gem - city Varaždin.

 

TRAKOŠĆAN CASTLE

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.

 

 

VARAŽDIN CITY

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.
