A castle that words can't describe. If you are in Zagorje, stop there, you won't regret it. It show parts of Croatia history in a beautiful castle. The surroundings is equally breathtaking!

We took a private tour to Trakoscan Castle and the Krapina Neanderthal Museum with a Tours by Locals guide. The Castle was totally empty on the rather gray day we visited. We loved the beautiful views of it from below and the path around the lake. Then enjoyed a lovely local cheese pastry.

The castle is really great, nature and lake around it are stunning, but my impressions are that it needs renovation and more restaurants, souvenir-shops where you could take a break, eat and buy something.

Nice castle, It has a variety of authentic furniture, weapons, art from 15th to 19th century. Castle is placed on top of a hill, surounded with high walls. From watchtower you have beautifull view on lake and surounding forests.

Trakoscan Castle sits on a small hill amongst the Croatian countryside. It is impressive to see it standing there, the walk up to the castle is through a leafy path then onto the roadway that circles the building. Each room has been preserved to highlight the history and to show how the castle was used when people lived there.

The castle is nice, but most of the time you can spend in the park, visiting lakes and forests. In the summer you can visit the lake by boat and pedal boats. It is also great for a picnic.

Well preserved medieval castle with lots of items from different historical periods. Each room tells different story: art room, room with hunting trophies, arsenal, .. Great place for whole family. Like in fairy tale, castle is situated on a beautiful lake with promenade all around.

Epic medieval castle with all the romantic stuff and views. Nice lake. Lots of spots for photographers. Also pedalo can be rent. Hey, take care: the lake next to the castle is really octopus-sahped and first it cheats you and seem to be just a short walk to get walked around. Indeed it takes almost two hours to walk around...

Trakoscan castle came directly from fairytale. It is well maintained and really beautiful. You can feel presence of medieval nobility. Unfortunately on occasion of my visit it wasn't possible to rent audio guide, but if you would be offered take it.
