Trakošćan Castle



Trakošćan Castle is one of the most attractive castles in Croatia. It is located in Croatian Zagorje, 23 km north-east of Krapina and 40 km southwest of Varaždin, near Macelj and Strahinčica.

Trakošćan Castle was built in the 13th century and was originally a small medieval castle – Burg, as a part of the defence system of Zagorje County. Out of many suzerains, the most known owners of the Castle were Counts of Celje, Jan Vitovec, the Korvins and after the dissolution of Zagorje County Gyulays and since 1569 the owner was Croatian noble family Draškovići.

The Castle was expended and upgraded several times, significantly in 1592, when artillery towers with roofing were built by family Drašković. During that period upper floor was extended, central tower was increased and yard with arcades was shaped. Another expansion of the Trakošćan Castle took place during 18th century when central tower got its rugged lantern and defence facilities, walls and towers were built around the castle. In the second half of the 18th century Trakošćan was abandoned but at the beginning of the 19th century it was taken back by Drašković family. Neglected castle was than renovated by vice marshal Juraj Drašković and converted to residential castle.
