Short Desciption
Perched at an altitude of 333 m, Veliki (Great) Tabor Castle has for centuries kept watch over the Croatian Zagorje. Long ago, in early medieval and Renaissance times, it was the westernmost point of the fortificational system that stretched up to the eastern slopes of Ivanščica and included the fortification of Mali (Small) Tabor, Kostelgrad, Gorica, Cesargrad, Loborgrad, Oštrc, Pusta Bela, Milengrad, Greben-grad and Konjščina.
Veliki Tabor is a first-class monument of zero category, one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Croatia and a representative of late-medieval fortificational architecture. Of all the great houses of the Croatian Zagorje, it is Veliki Tabor that excites the most emotion and best takes us back into the mysterious feudal past. "It still stands in all its glory, from afar it seems alive, it seems to bring us the life of an' age long gone, we expect ancient lords and ladies to greet us with a smile... But all that is fantasy..." Impressively monumental, beautiful, ageless, although it has had no real masters for two centuries.
