"Beautifle castle"

Castle is very beautifle, it's worth to visit it. I have been last year and there are many interesting things that you can see.

Castle is a nestled atop a hill, maintained well for its antiquity and historicity that is intricately tied to this city. Visit is even more interesting due to the curious little bunch of kids who are trying to assimilate their historical moorings....

not the best. Did not feel very welcome. Best to see the castle form the outside, the inside not very interesting/good. Not everything is in English. Recommend to walk through town, people are lovely. Or drive around

Don't miss the castle, the centerpiece of Varazdin. Inside this historic building are some excellent museum displays.

The castle is located in the city center. The Old Castle and its environment is very lovely. It's nice place to visit and take pictures.

Nice village with a beautiful castle, well preserved. Ir seems we are more in Austria than in Croatia. People are politer, everything is cleaner. Nice pedestrian streets around the castle, and well kept gardens.

Beautifull and well kept building in original ambience. Museum keeps the memory of 19th century life-style.

It has somewhat decent collection of old firearms, so if you like that, it is good. Also, it has several rooms that are nicely preserved and displayed (17,18th century). The outside is much nicer than the inside.
