Interesting town

Interesting town. The main square is big and has beautiful renaissance buildings which holds cafes, boutiques etc. When in Varaždin, visit The Old Castle. It is lovely, well preserved not to big and interesting to visit.

Lovely quaint place

Varazdin was, at some point in past, capital of Croatia and the main square in Baroque style still shows wealth and glamour of that past. Old buildings are well preserved and mayors office dominates the square. A lovely place to have coffee.

Beautiful old town with a village appeal

Varazdin is a beautiful old town with a "village" appeal, the town centre itself is located close to the train station and the town is not too large Being from Australia, to me, Varazdin resembled a picture from a storybook. Varazdin is wonderful city which has amazing places and wonderful churches. The old castle is a must to visit!
