Dotted in picturesque villages and topped with castles, the green rolling hills of the Croatian north set the scene for a fairy-tale-like day trip.
As the dreamy sceneries of vineyards and rural landscapes replace the image of the bustling capital city, travel to Varaždin, the northern region’s center. Known for its distinct Baroque air, Varaždin sits on the bank of river Drava and weaves its green parks and flat lands around the Baroque and rococo architectural fabric. From Varaždin, make your way to one of the most beautiful Croatian castles, Trakošćan. Mentioned in written documents for the first time in the 14th century, it will for sure remain on the tip of your tongue a while after you have visited.
