Beautiful castle, very interesting and lovely lake walk

Massive old fortress set on top of natural stone outcrop. Beautifully restored with many interesting exhibits. Well worth a visit just for the castle, but there is a large lake... read more

Massive old fortress set on top of natural stone outcrop. Beautifully restored with many interesting exhibits. Well worth a visit just for the castle, but there is a large lake behind it, part of the original defences. There is a lovely walk around the lake with signage showing which wildlife you are likely to encounter. Pedalos can also be hired... More

The castle is BEAUTIFUL, the only thing that I didn't like is that is prohibited to take photos because your flash can ruin pictures that are 200+yrs old, which I approve, but EVERYBODY today took photos, and even tho there are cameras all around the castle, nobody came and told this people to stop doing that. It's kinda sad ...

The castle was nice, especially the surroundings and the lake. Cafe at the bottom wasn't great though if you want to stop for a coffee then it's ok but don't get good or wine! Not cheap either

I am from Croatia so i know our history. But i presume that any foreign tourist would find this museum and the castle interesting. Items at the museum are well preserved and organised. And the views from the top are as well.

It is a nice place for walking, around 5km around the lake. It has taken us 1.5 hours with a baby in a pushchair. Beautiful scenery.

It took as about one hour to walk around a lake (aprox. 6km long walking path) and a one hour to visit the museum. The museum has a material(from the Renaissance to historicism), made from valuable collections of paintings, furniture, weapons and other items which are constantly exposed and present aristocratic life through history of Trakošćan and Draskovic family.

Trakoscan is a dreamlike castle nestled in a beautiful natural environment. The park includes a lake with boats available for renting. The walk to the castle takes you on a winding path encircling this magnificent structure. As you enter through the main gate you can still see where the drawbridge was raised to keep out intruders in the olden days.... More
