Unlucky to be Zagreb in a Friday and solo, joining a tour to Trakoscan (and Varazdin) didn't seem to be an option (unless you're willing to pay a high price). But talking to local, I ended up going there by taking a public bus to Varazdin (sight see there for a bit), then continued on from there to Trakoscan (total... More

The castle is beautiful and interesting to see . The path along the lake and forest are beautiful , wonderful nature . It is allowed for dogs , and you have a couple of places for a picnic . The lack of waste bins and bench .

We spent a day touring in part of Croatia that falls on the north of Zagreb. This castle is a must-see, not only is wonderfull outside but the interior visit is amazing. The children really enjoyed visiting it. The outside gardens are really amazing. After 2 weeks in Croatia this has been one of the top 5 experiences. If you... More

This castle is preserved wonderfully. Most of the rooms are furnished and that really adds to the tour of the castle. Many beautiful pieces of art throughout the castle and some great historical lineage stories written throughout. Peaceful and beautiful view overlooking the lake from the castle.

The castle doesn't look like much from the outside, but it gets more and more interesting on the inside as you progress through the rooms and read the history. It dates from an interesting historical period with many odd personal facts relating to the inhabitants. It is almost too personal an account.

We have wanted to visit Trakoscan Castle for quite some time now, but when we finally managed to get there, we were a little bit disappointed by unfriendly staff at the castles's entrance (at the hills top, in the castle). The “gentleman“ behind the reception desk was very harsh and unfriendly. My boyfriend waited outside with our doggy, as I... More

Its take about 1 hour make a tour of castle, and it cost about 4€. if you have a stroller may be tricky to make a tour because castle has lots of stairs.Also if you enjoy... More

The parking available on the bottom of the hill where the souvenir shops, the coffee shop and ticket office is. After a slightly sloped circular road you reach the castle entrance gate and get immersed into Croatian medieval times. The castle is perfectly preserved and gives you the exact sense how it all was in the past. Recommending to take... More

It's very quiet and comfortable to walk around the castle. The antiques in castle is kept in very good conditions. The lake next to castle is lovely to walk a bit and enjoy the mirror image of the castle over the lake ❤️
