It is the center of aristocratic estate, owner and legally separate from the free royal town of Varazdin. The present fort was built of 14 to 19 the century. The oldest part of the central tower. Bench and canopy in its ground floor are the most beautiful examples of Gothic secular plastic in the North Croatian. For the wars with the Turks in the 16th century, rebuilt in the Renaissance Wasserburg, a fortress – the castle is surrounded by high earthen walls with bastions, surrounded by a double belt of water. Turnover in the second half of the 16th century carried Italian architects from around Coma headed by the emperor built the fortress in the Slavonian frontier Domenico del? Lalli. During the past was having many important noble family, the Counts of Celje, John Ungnada, George of Brandenburg and Croatian Ban Thomas Erdödyja and his successors.

  • As a young kid growing up this was my play ground,just across the street where my family used to have home. I have fond memories of the place.
  • Unlike most of the castles that are maintained this one is a beauty. Can't miss it and you shouldn't.
  • Wonderful castle and area around castle shows history of Varazdin.
