|About the museum:
Veliki Tabor is one of the best preserved late medieval and Renaissance fortified burgs in inland Croatia. It was built by the aristocratic Rattkay family in the 16th century, and remained in their possession until 1793. The oldest part of the complex is the keep, which had a residential and defensive function. Later, in the 16th century, four semicircular towers we built, and in the 17th century the areas by the northern wall were built on. Among the owners is the well known Croatian painter Oton Iveković who sang of the castle and the picturesque landscape around it in many of his works with the brush. The Museums of Hrvatsko Zagorje opened the doors of the permanent display to visitors on October 17, 2007. Veliki Tabor Castle is the first phase of the restored and reconstructed part of the castle.
