Trakošćan Castle

Cultural heritage and protected as a history entity, Trakoscan Castle is the most visited and popular castle in Croatia. It is located in northern Croatia in the Varaždin County. The castle was built in the 13th century and according to the legend, it was named after an earlier fortification that stood in the same place. Trakošćan castle was owned by several families until it was completely abandoned in the second half of the 18th century when the building of castles in the region was increasing rapidly. In the middle of the 19th century, it acquired its present look when it was turned into a residential estate with a stunning garden. The museum was established in 1954 with a permanent exhibition and the castle is a property of the Republic of Croatia. You can find more useful information here.
