Trakošćan - Croatia

Trakošćan was built in the late 13th century in northwestern Croatian defense system as a small observation fortress for monitoring the road from Ptuj to Bednja Valley. It was first mentioned in written records in 1334. year. Lords of fort in the first centuries are not known, yet we know that the end of the 14th century owners were Counts of Celje, which in the same time ruled with entire Zagorje County. The family soon become extinct and Trakoscan shared the fate of their other towns and estates that were divided and changing owners.

For services rendered king Maximilian gave the estate to Juraj Drašković (1525th-1587th), first personally, then as the family heritage. So finally at 1584 year Trakošćan belongs to Drašković family.

In the boom years of building castles in Croatian Zagorje, in the second half of the 18th century Trakošćan was abandoned. Neglected, it begins to deteriorate rapidly so just in the second half of the 19th century., the family re-interested in its estate in the spirit of the new era romantic return to nature and family traditions. In this spirit marshal Juraj V. Drašković reconstructed it in residential castle and the surrounding park was transformed into a romantic garden. The next generation occasionally stayed in Trakošćan until 1944 when they immigrated to Austria soon after the castle was nationalized. In 1954 the museum was established with a permanent exhibition. Today the castle is owned by the Republic of Croatia.
