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.

I have wanted to visit Varaždin ever since I saw it on a poster, in Australia. It was just as I imagined but better still because there were no crowds of tourists , just very pleasant locals. I loved how one can stroll the grounds of the castle and soak up the atmosphere . It was easy to imagine the... More

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.

The castle is a gem. It offers a great collection of artefacts dating back to the origins of the town of Varaždin and the surrounding region, it has a nice collection of weapons and shields, as well as a set of rooms decorated in various historic styles according to historic periods. A stroll around the castle provides a nice vista... More

Picturesque from the outside with green surroundings, perfect for photographers, families or romantic walks! Also, an interesting museum inside the castle.

Amazing but true. In the 1200's started as a fort against Saracens. Up to a few years ago a stately family home. Collections of porcelain, ancient glass, and very good furniture. And the town is perfectly charming. Not even 10 dollars about for a visit. Such thick walls. And lovely garden too.

Varazdin is a beautiful picture postcard place. It's about an hour by car from Central Zagreb and easily reached. The toll motorway cost us £2:60 one way. I'm surprised there isn't much more mentioned about this place and it's nice squares churches and traffic free zones. It's very cheap too. A coffee and a coke in the old square were... More
