The trip to Trakoscan Castle from Zagreb is an easy and straightforward one, taking only about 90 minutes along the motorway. The entry fee is 30 kunas and the tour takes about 30-45 minutes to explore the castle and then another hour to hour and a half walking around the grounds. It's relatively well preserved but the lighting within the... More

Not a fancy and not the biggest castle but really nice and preserved. A lot of things to learn and see how old croatian people lived in the past. Must see if you are Croatian or foreigner.

A lovely castle on a hill with a beautiful lake and forest below, visited a while back. A good walk up the hill to reach the Castle, lovely to see inside, the draw room bedrooms snd antiques. A nice map of the family tree. Shame that when we visited no photos were allowed inside. Great view from the top.

As it usually goes, I've visited and made reviews of many sights located in other countries, while I haven't visited a sight that's almoust in my backyard. Trakoscan castle is located less than an hour drive from Zagreb, and I highly recommend visiting it if you're in Zagreb or nearby. The sight of a beautiful castle on the hill, surrounded... More

The view from the lake was stunning. Also the rest od the park is lovely. The castle itself is staged great and it shows you how it's owners lived here. The furniture is authentic and restored. Art in the castle is amaizing.

Worth seeing if you're visiting the northern part of Croatia. Lovely lake below the castle to hike around. Beautifully furnished rooms, and good historical descriptions give you a feel for the castle's role in the region. Also try the little bistro near the parking lot. Authentic and tasty local food.

Here is a real castle in stunning surroundings about 1.5 hours from Zagreb. it sits high on its' hill, but the access is a reasonably easy winding, fairly steep slope with several seats half way up for those in need. The climb is well worth it as this is a sizeable castle with numerous rooms and a wonderful terrace at... More
