We thoroughly enjoyed this inexpensive and self-directed tour of the Old Castle in Varazdin. Nicely appointed with displays of clothing and period weapons as well as some period furniture made for an enjoyable hour or so. I recommend this as a fun activity.

Probably one of the most preserved castles in this part of Europe. Inside there is a museum where you get an insight into the rich history of Varazdin and its surroundings for an entry fee of 3.5 euros.
