The New York Times recently published an article called "52 places to go in 2014", in which they included Varaždin!
“Forget Croatia’s beloved coast: The inland city Varaždin is one of the country’s most picturesque and well-preserved areas. One hour north of Zagreb, this small metropolis of 50,000 has an immaculate cobblestoned town center and is stocked with Baroque churches and palaces like the Drašković.”, says the New York Times.
“The theme continues with an annual Baroque music festival, but that’s where it ends. Other music-themed festivals and concerts are decidedly modern and change from year to year: One, the Radar Festival, for contemporary stars, has drawn names such as Bob Dylan and Carlos Santana, and various other festivals throughout the year such as Špancir Fest, celebrated from the end of August to September, attract artists and musicians from around Europe.”
Other European destinations on the list include the Albanian coast, Vienna, Elsinore in Denmark, Rotterdam, Subotica, Scotland, Yorkshire, Frankfurt, Umea, Andermatt in Switzerland, Athens, Vatican and Iceland. The entire list can be found here.
