Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at your central Zagreb hotel, and then hop aboard your luxury air-conditioned coach for your journey north to Varadin, roughly 50 miles (81km) away. As the former capital of Croatia and cultural heart of the Meimurje region, Varadin has a refined architecture in abundance, and your guide will show off its best bits on your walking tour.

Hop off your coach and enjoy a leisurely paced stroll around the pretty cobblestone streets that comprise the town center. Gaze around at the resplendent Baroque buildings that throng the alleyways while hearing tales and trivia about the town.

Hear how the town flourished as Croatias center of commerce during the late 17th century, enjoying a stint as the countrys capital before a fire snuffed out its glory nearly a century later. See top Varadin attractions like the Cathedral of the Assumption and the Monastery of St John the Baptist, and enjoy photo stops next to interesting buildings like Varadin Town Hall.

Finish your walking tour in the center of town, and then enjoy an hour at leisure to sightsee independently or find a restaurant for lunch (own expense). Then, meet your guide at the prearranged time and continue your day trip to the town of Trakoan, a short distance away.

The towns spectacular centerpiece is Trakoan Castle, a magnificent fortress thats said to date back as far as the 13th century. Head inside with your guide, and explore the castle on a tour, admiring a medley of architectural styles from Romanesque to Gothic and Baroque. Learn about the Croatian aristocracy who once lived inside the castle and admire the portraits of them that seem to hang at every twist and turn.

After exploring the castle, return to your coach and relax on the journey south to Zagreb. Your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.
