Overview

Visit the Baroque city of Varazdin and take in Trakoscan Castle on a full-day, guided tour from Zagreb that explores Croatia’s history, architecture, and art. Join a local guide for a walking tour through the beautiful center of Varazdin, then head to the 13th century castle to see rooms filled with paintings, weapons, and artifacts. This full-day Varazdin and Trakoscan Castle tour includes pickup and drop-off in centrally-located Zagreb hotels, and it’s limited to 15 people for personal service from the guide.
  • Small group Varazdin and Trakoscan tour from Zagreb
  • Walking tour of a historic Baroque town
  • Visit the Varazdin Cemetery
  • Entrance fees to Trakoscan Castle included
  • Pickup and drop-off in central Zagreb
  • Small group tour that offers a personalized experience
Meet a guide at your centrally-located hotel in Zagreb, or at Zrinjevac Park, then make the 54-mile (87-km) trip to Varazdin in a climate-controlled vehicle. As you travel to Varazdin, the guide will share an overview of the city’s fascinating history, with fun stories about Croatian life and culture.
Upon arrival, a local guide in Varazdin will join your group for a walking tour, including the Varazdin Cemetery, where gorgeous tombstones and quiet paths are overshadowed by tall, leafy trees. Follow back streets to architectural gems, and find some of the city's elegant villas—at one time, Varazdin was Croatia's wealthiest city.
Next, continue to Trakoscan Castle, 25 miles (40 km.) west of Varazdin, with a fairytale setting high on a hill. Walk the fortifications with views down to a forested valley, and get a glimpse of Croatia’s tumultuous past in the castle’s displays of weapons and armor. After exploring the castle, walk to the nearby lake, then meet back up with the driver/guide for the return trip to Zagreb.

I went in the trip on the recommendation of a friend from Zagreb. It was fantastic! The town is so perfect and not touristy at all. The castle was like something out of a storybook. Our guide- Goren-was knowledge, thorough and incredibly interesting. Go on this trip!

Petros tour in Croatia is the most professional company that I have used and I have been to many tours with Viator all around the world.
Most other companies would have cancelled as I was the only participants but they did not.
A very passionated and interesting guide, Mia. A very nice town. The castle gives a superb view of the lake and is one of the best preserved in this part of Europe.
Thank you!

An excellent trip in every respect. Luckily, my wife and I were the only guests and extremely well looked after by Maja. She was pleasant, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. Pickup was punctual and car was clean and comfortable. Most enjoyable day.

Had a great time. Our tour guide Maya was great and knowledgeable! It was a very private tour for me with only one other person! It did rain the whole time but again Maya made sure she had enough umbrellas for everyone!!! I would definitely recommend this tour!

Our tour guide, Maja, was fabulous..very knowledgable and enthusiastic. Varazdin was a beautiful town and we could have had more free time there but we had to have lunch and ran out of time. Trakoscan Castle was very interesting and again Maja was very knowledgable giving us an interesting history lesson of the family who lived in the castle. . There were only 5 of us on the tour which made it very comfortable .. we would re on end this tour to other visitors!

I loved this trip. A beautiful drive through the Croatian countryside to get to the attractions. Enjoyed the time in both places. Varazdin is a lovely little city and the castle was also interesting. I was the only person booked on this tour that day and had the guide to myself. She was knowledgeable, friendly and a great guide. This is an area I think more people should visit when in Croatia.
