Saturday mornings are the best time to feel the pulse of this town. People are doing their fruit market errands and sipping coffees in the central squares.
City guard (purgeri) does their march in front of the hall.
During some parts of the year, there is also a guitarist playing live.

The Varaždin main square is very nice especially because of the artistic façades of the buildings standing there, ancient palaces with lots of character and hearth. It’s a peaceful place called Trg Kralja Tomislava, half a way betwixt the cathedral and St. Francis Church, where it’s advisable to stop for a while and perhaps sit on the terrace of one of the cafés which are on both longest sides thereof in order to enjoy the calm and the special atmosphere reigning in that place.
In that square there is the café Korzo which somehow reminds of the Viennese similar commercial premises. The modernist decoration inside is rather interesting.
There are other buildings there which are even more attractive, namely the Town Hall, the Patačić Palace and the Drašković Palace. The style of the last one's façade is rococo. It’s worth to contemplate it attentively in order to observe its elaborate manufacture and watch the coat of arms of the family concerned carefully carved over the portal. This one is certainly in its integrity the finest part of outer part of the Palace.
The Patačić Palace isn’t exactly in the Main Square but rather in Gundulića Ulica by the Franciscans Square Its façade is painted white and yellow and also in rococo style. Another outstanding element of this building is the impressive portal with some columns. Its little polyhedral corner is a pretty element of that building. It’s no doubt the most beautiful rococo palace in Varaždin. Today's appearance dates back from 1764 when the older house was renovated. It was count Franjo Patačić's home and a center of social life of the then Varaždin.
The Town Hall is also great from an artistic viewpoint. Its rain diverter roof with red tiles ande its square shaped tower in the middle of the building main body shows that the same architectural conception as that concerning most of the town churches was applied.
When being still in that square, provided the aforesaid advise is followe, thus enjoying its peaceful conditions, it's appropriate to close the eyes for a while keeping in one's mind the silouhette of the buildings described above and so try to go backwards in time two or three centuries in an attempt to feel more appeased and in a better state altogether.

We enjoyed spending a few hours in Varazdin on our way to Trakoscan. The square itself is picturesque and wasn't crowded the day that we were there. We enjoyed wandering through the streets in a city that doesn't get nearly as much tourist traffic as others. The place had a wonderfully authentic vibe.
