If you are passing by or you are near to this castle , you should visit it and explore a bit more because it has some interesting things that you should see but overall it's nothing special so if you miss it dont worry.

The is an enormous keep which you don't see as you approach the fortress and is believed to have been created in the 12th Century. However the main feel of a a 19th Century family living in this grand house with portraits and furnishings to match.

Most popular and historic part of Varaždin. It is a good thing to visit on sunny days. Even it is good for romantic walks with significant other.

Varaždin is a beautiful, old town with a lot of history. This castle is one of the things you shouldn't miss if you are in Varaždin. When you go inside you feel like you are in a fairytale :). Absolutely must see if you are in Varaždin.
