While the snow brings the cold, it also brings a different type of beauty, particularly to one famous building in Varazdin County. 

It is far from Croatia's fabled Adriatic Coast, but it has a different beauty of its own. 

Trakoscan castle near the Slovenian border in Varazdin county is one of Croatia's most famous castles, and one of its most beautiful. 

But should you happen to be in the area when the snow falls, it assumes a magic of its own, which has been superbly captured by Dario Bajurin.

Enjoy the wonderful video below - and here is Trakoscan in warmer, and equally gorgeous, times
