  • 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.
