Overview

More
The fort of Veliki Tabor is one of the most important cultural and historical monuments of secular architecture in continental Croatia, with a unique monumental and authentic fortification structure. Situated at the top of Mount Hum Kosnicki, at 333 meters above sea level, it has dominated the Zagorje area for over half a millennium, during which time the architecture has blended in with nature. The impressive view from Veliki Tabor stretches over the entire Hrvatsko Zagorje area and part of Slovenia. This zero-category monument is one of the most recognizable identities of not only Hrvatsko Zagorje but of Croatia as a whole.

For those who do not like fast road, but rather ride the landscape of a country, then turned to the left in order to ultimately come to the right, the journey will lead them to Veliki Tabor. So have I, respecting the road signs and...More

Veliki Tabor is beautiful castle, and it's great experience overlooking the surrounding hills from there. The museum exhibition is small and build around legend of Veronika Desinićka. The museum is new and there is not really original interior. You can take a walk from Grešna...More

The castle looks to be renovated very recently. The medieval characteristics of the castle are primarily visible in the main building structure with its round towers and battlements. Almost all interior decorations and other small details seem to be lost.

Impressive from the road. Has free grazing deer in fields. Could unfortunately not gain access and due to time limitations we didn't persue entering.

Most of the castle has been renovated with a few areas still to go. Interesting history which is told on information boards as you go through each room. Tragic story in places, but very interesting. Massive wine cellar (empty!) and barrels. Reasonably priced, well worth...More
