Video: check out this awesome snowy castle in Varazdin County


Up by the Slovenian border, and perched on a small hill fronted by a picture-perfect lake, Trakoščan Castle is a 19th-century neo-Gothic version of the medieval original, complete with turrets, a drawbridge and a landscaped park. The living quarters of its last owners, Count Drašković and his family, are open as a museum, with furniture from different periods (baroque, rococo and Biedemeier), a series of family portraits and antique weapons dating as far back as the 15th century.
