This castle is open to the public and provides a good look back at what life was like in earlier times. The rooms were well done in period pieces, and there were plenty of costumes, and weaponry to look at. the museum takes up all three floors so there are lots of nooks and crannies to explore. We spent a... More

It is a lovely castle, viewed from outside, just like what one finds from postcards and photos.It was rather unfortuante that visiting the town on a Sunday afternoon, the castle was closed and we could not visit the inside; so I cannot give this a higher rating to do it justice. However,the medieval town itself with its well preserved baroque... More

The old castle was definitely the highlight of our visit to Varazdin! The building is simply beautiful, and we were amazed by the size of its collection. There were many more rooms to explore than we realized! There is not much information in English, but it is fun to explore the different eras that are represented throughout the displays, especially... More

I was surprised that castle (indoor) is closed on Saturday from 1pm and on Sunday. It also true for other sites in Croatia and not convenient when one is here for business and wants to visit museums or historic sites on weekend. However it worth to 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.
