Owner description: The fort of Veliki Tabor is one of the most important cultural and historical monuments of secular architecture in continental Croatia, with a unique monumental and authentic fortification structure. Situated at the top of Mount Hum Kosnicki, at 333 meters above sea level, it has dominated the Zagorje area for over half a millennium, during which time the architecture has blended in with nature. The impressive view from Veliki Tabor stretches over the entire Hrvatsko Zagorje area and part of Slovenia. This zero-category monument is one of the most recognizable identities of not only Hrvatsko Zagorje but of Croatia as a whole.

“DVORAC VELIKI TABOR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I was driving one fogy night on the road toward the castle. It looked beautifull and dreamy standing there lightned by the moon and felt very soory because I forgot camera. The castle is renewed and it looks great outside and inside. It is pitty there are not more tourists because whole area is outstanding. Peaple are great, now spoild and gready, excelent domestic food, landscape breathtaking. The castle is one hour driving from Zagreb and if you ever come to Zagreb make half day trip to the castle.

“Veliki Tabor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is one of the first renewed (still in progress) castle in Croatia, there is few of them at the coast but in continental part of country there are very small number of un-destroyed castles.
The castle is still not finished but it is very nice to see, and from approaching road, when is fogy looks relay magical.

“Gem in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

If you are expecting a fully furnished castle, don't stop. If you appreciate architecture and history, then stop and enjoy. The reconstruction looks good and there is more excavation work being done.

“Nice building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

a place from which I expected a lot more, from the outside is beautiful and the inside of the castle has very little content, and not the whole arranged for visitors
