Today my cousins took me to Trakošcan castle, which is a couple hours from where I’m staying. Walking from the parking lot the castle sits atop a mountain; a white summer home to those that once lived here.

The weaving path took us up to the walls of the castle and soon we were discovering the treasures it held. Wandering in and out of the rooms took us through all the different periods of history in all its glory.

After exploring the castle inside and out we headed to the lake below. We wandered its path to a little area that allowed us to have a picnic in the castle’s shadow.

We continued around the lake before finally coming to its end by a floating bar where we partook in some libation. All to soon we were back on the road heading to our next destination – Varaždin.
