    Newly renovated and well maintained castles in lush green surroundings. Informative signs where you can read about the castle's history. The most touching story was about an unhappy love affair that ended with a young woman was immured in the wall. It need not be true but it's that kind of small stories that give soul to the old Castle. :)

    Restored in record time in 2015. On the remains of a historic castle with an organization of halls, stairs, balconies of each other on the inner courtyard impressive, the castle in July each year features a Croatian film festival with investments including foreign ones. Few however the halls with ornaments. Very interesting the horrific torture devices, the carriages and part of basement with old equipment. Bellissimo il panorama. What is striking is the inner courtyard overlooked by two beautiful balconies. To see.

    Unlike Trakoscan, this is a real castle built for protection in the Middle Ages. It is gradually undergoing restoration. The exterior is impressive but much of the interior is still empty. Most of the...  more »

    For me this is the best looking castle in Croatia. After renovation looks great. Castle date from the 12th century. Most of the castle was built by the Hungarian noble family of Ráttkay, in whose ownership it remained until 1793. The castle chapel on the first floor contains the skull of the legendary Veronika of Desinić. According to leggend, Veronika was eventually imprisoned by soldiers in Veliki Tabor. Old count Herman accused unfortunate Veronika of being a witch who had cast a spell on his son. Despite the verdict, as soon as the judges set off on their way, Count Herman issued an order to his castellan that Veronika be killed. A large vat filled with water was put up in the courtyard of Veliki Tabor, in which Veronika was drowned. Her body was built into the wall connecting the pentagonal tower to the castle entrance. Veronika's wails can still be heard, especially in long winter nights, along with the howling of the wind…

    Fantastic castle and beautiful surroundings. Easy drive from Zagreb through lovely country side.

    I always encourage any restoration process, this time I couldn't help but think whether this was much larger intervention than it should be. The execution looks pretty well but I think having done that, the spirit of the castle was kind of neglected. Amazing view though, it's a beautiful place. Entrance fee is about 20 kunas, 10 for the kids. I insist you visit this historical landmark. Be sure to check visiting hours as they change during the summer and winter seasons.
