Join this amazing tour, enjoy a scenic drive and discover the western part of Croatian hinterland (Hrvatsko Zagorje), fairy tale castle of Trakošćan and beautiful Baroque city of Varaždin, once a Croatian capital. You will be picked up from your hotel, or any other location in the Zagreb city center.
The tour will take you through gentle landscapes of green hills, vineyards, charming churches, chapels and castles. Hrvatsko Zagorje is home to more than 50 castles, some of which have their own private parks. When in Hrvatsko Zagorje, take advantage of the opportunity and take home a unique souvenir - wooden children’s toys are recognizable traditional products of Hrvatsko Zagorje with a long history and are listed on the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Trakošćan is certainly one of the most beautiful castles in Croatia and a highlight of the trip. It is a 13th century hilltop castle and has been renovated in the neo-Gothic style in 1850s. Explore the museum inside, and imagine how splendid it must have been to live in the castle. Enjoy a walk in the park with a lake below the castle. Your next stop will be in the town of Varaždin, one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Croatia, a Baroque city known for its wonderful 12th century old town fort.
