Relaxing walk around the Old Castle, nice atmosophere in Varazdin. It is only 1 hour away from Zagreb, don't miss to visit baroque city. Hidden gem.

If you are passing by or you are near to this castle , you should visit it and explore a bit more because it has some interesting things that you should see but overall it's nothing special so if you miss it dont worry.

It's on a small hill with beautiful views. In front of the square excellent cafes, restaurants, buzzing until late in life.
