Trakošćan castle
Trakošćan is one of the most attractive and most visited castles in Croatia, located on the hills of Croatian Zagorje. It was built in the 13th century and its distinctive architectural feature is Romanesque castles from the 12th and 13 century. In 16th century the castle was taken over by Croatian Ban Juraj Draskovic for his personal use. He and his family remained its hereditary owners, with one brief interruption, until World War II.
Besides amazing faithful reconstruction of the castle which fully corresponds to 19th century, the castle Trakošćan contains valuable examples of baroque furniture, different weapons used from 15th to 19th century and other small items. Moreover, a beautiful romantic gardens, built on the model of English parks, and a large lake in front of the castle is something that should not be missed.

Far away from towns, slightly isolated in the rolling country between Ravna gora, Macelj and Strahinščica, it has one of the most beautiful and best-maintained parks with a rich and varied vegetation, full of interesting views, panoramas and atmosphere. It is a cultural and historic monument that makes an indivisible whole with its lovely natural environment.
