Friday, 28/10/2022
Half-day tour: 9:00 – 16:00 h

After the Opening ceremony, for those of you not attending the Forum, you can enjoy your day on a trip to two beautiful historic sites, which are around a 45-minute drive away from Zagreb.

We start the tour with a visit to Trakošćan Castle, built in the 13th century. This cultural heritage is a tremendously well-preserved castle, which was established as a museum with a permanent exhibition in 1954. This beautiful castle is a real Croatian medieval treasure, comprising the castle with its outbuildings, and the forest park with a lake.

After Trakošćan Castle, you will continue your trip to Varaždin, a historic town with preserved palaces, important public buildings, houses and villas in baroque, rococo, classicist, and secessionist style, and one of the oldest City Halls in Europe. You will be back in Zagreb at 17:00 h, just in time to get some rest and to get ready for the Host Night event!
