The hidden treasure
Trakoscan is the most romantic and, in the opinion of many, the most beautiful, most visited and best preserved castle in Croatia, of which one historian wrote: "I do not know whether I felt happier in any other park than one in Trakoscan, and not only the first time, when it enchanted me, but every time I came there. " Besides amazing faithful reconstruction of the castle which fully corresponds to 19th century, the castle Trakoscan contains valuable examples of baroque furniture, different weapons used from 15th to 19th century and other items. Moreover, a beautiful romantic gardens, built on the model of English parks, and a large lake in front of the castle is something that should not be missed.

Good tour through a lovely part of Croatia. Senad took us through the castle himself and gave fascinating commentary. Then afterward we were allowed a half hour to walk around the man made lake below the castle. It was interesting and we got some amazing photographs. From there we went to a restaurant on top of a hill for lunch, and both the food and the views were amazing.
