Guided tour of Trakošćan Castle

Perched on top of a small hill, Trakošćan Castle rises above a beautifully landscaped park and lake. This jewel of mainland Croatia is one of the most spectacular castles in Europe and one of the most visited monuments in Croatia. Trakošćan Castle was built in the late 13th century to defend north-western Croatia. In 1953 Trakošćan Castle was converted from a residential castle into a museum with a permanent exhibition which, amongst other things, includes a valuable collection of baroque-era furniture. Look forward to exploring this spectacular castle in the company of a certified guide.
