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.

Varazdin is full of history and this place just radiates it. This castle is very well preserved and it takes you back in past. All artifacts, history books and stories give you an insight how important this city was in Croatian's past and how important this area was in fighting for integrity of country.
