  • I don't know if that's the case, but at the time we visited this place it was completely peaceful, even kind of sleepy. A beautiful baroque town, full of authentic historical buildings. Some buildings, however, would not hurt a little renovation.
  • The best town I ever visited. Really like the vibe of this old town and we came just in time when there is a baroque festival happening. There is a big fireworks the first night I stayed in Varaždin and it is super memorable as it is can be seen from our apartment balcony. Already come back three times to walk around the town during my visit in Croatia. Will absolutely come again.
  • Beautiful old town and castle! One of the highlights of our visit to Croatia. Such a pleasant surprise.
  • It's actually a very nice castle. Seems to be recently refurbished and the paint looks very nice, especially on a winter, cloudy day. Not much to see on the inside, appears everything was closed when we went. However there is a nice berm to walk on that circles the castle, presumably an old moat. Recommend. It's picture worthy. From 12 century.
  • I went to this place for the advent carnival. The food is tasty, the prices are good and the people is very friendly. They have some hiking tracks and you can appreciate gardens full of native plants. There is a museum and the church is very pretty. I saw a shooting star here, highly recommended!
