Trakoscan Castle © Maxman
Trakoscan is a legendary 13th-century Gothic castle that was home to various influential families for centuries before finally falling into disrepair in the second half of the 18th century. It now survives as a museum of life in a medieval castle, with visitors exploring three floors, a dungeon and the surrounding parklands. Guests can wander freely through stone corridors, up and down winding staircases and into the various rooms adorned by original furniture and weaponry. It is also a great attraction for children as the castle, lake and forest transport the little ones to a fairytale world.
