Trakošćan Castle

Trakošćan was built in the 13th century as an observatory fortress. Today, it is a valuable cultural monument and a protected historical area. According to the legend, it was named after the Thracian or the Drachenstein knights. In the 19th century, it was restored by Juraj Drašković. Thanks to him, today the castle represents a blend of romantic residential and landscape architecture. The original arrangement of the interior has been preserved, while prominent areas are the music lounge, the Great Hall, the arms collection with specimens from the 15th to the 19th century, hunting hall, atelier of painter Julijana Erdoedy and the like. The castle is owned by the Republic of Croatia, and has housed a museum since 1954. It represents one of the few buildings with preserved material related to the life of the owner.
