Varaždin - Old Town

The fortress called Old Town was first mentioned in the 12th century and it is believed that back than it was used as a headquarters of the Counts of Varaždin. At the end of the 14th century, it was owned by the Counts of Celje and redecorated in gothic style. The central square building and surrounding wooden palisades also originate from that time.

Mayor renovation was performed in 16th century when it was reconstructed and became a modern renaissance fortress. Just before 1544, walls, round towers, ramparts and water ditch around the fortress were built, thus it became a distinctive type of fortress called wasserburg. At the end of the 16th century, when it became a permanent property of the Hungarian-Croatian family Erdödy, the fortress was a subject of the minor adaptations in the Baroque style.

In 1925 the Old Town fortress became a property of the Varaždin city. In the same year, the city museum was opened there, providing numerous expositions of the old objects from everyday life of Varaždin nobility and citizenry.
