VARAŽDIN OLD CITY
The most important thing to see in the city is the Old city Varaždin. It is located in the northwestern part of the cities core. Today it is a museum of the city of Varaždin. The fortress was built in the 12th century and it is believed that it was a base for Varaždin counts. Later in the 14th century it was given to the Celjski family who redecorate it in a gothic style. In the 16th century it was changed the most by gaining the renaissance fortification around the city. At that time it became a ‘’wasserburg’’ or better to say a fortress surrounded by a ditch containing water. At the end it was given to the Erdody family which made some baroque adjustments.
OUR TIP: Take a look inside the castle and explore the legends.
