The city of Varazdin (Varaždin) is located in the northwest of Croatia, in the hilly area of Ravna Gora, Kalnik and Ivanscica (Ivanščica), whose forests, meadows and vineyards blend into the Pannonian plain. Located at the intersection of roads and in contact with each side of the world, Varazdin (Varaždin) was built as a bridge, carefully, with special attention of numerous poor people and their poor destinies. Nobility, craftsmen, merchants and rich citizens, each of them with their own bricks, built this first Croatian metropolis.
In the historical necklace of central European cities, Varazdin (Varaždin) presents itself as a rare urban pearl - a city of harmony and hospitality, a city that shows its specific urban identity not only with the beauty of the old Baroque architecture, but also the warmth of its lovely squares, streets and parks, and above all, richly preserved museum collections. Varazdin (Varaždin) can be proud of its architectural pearls and heritage. The old town with its baroque harmony brought Varaždin flattering title as one of the candidates for the UNESCO's cultural heritage list.
Even until today, Varazdin (Varaždin) has kept some of the essential characteristics of the „Croatian Vienna“, as a city of baroque, music and flowers - a pleasant resting place for its visitors.
