One Minute Ludbreg: What is Inside Batthyany Castle in Ludbreg?

By 29 November 2020

November 29, 2020 - Continuing our tour of Croatia's most unusual town, the latest episode of One Minute Ludbreg takes us inside Batthyany Castle.

One of the things I love most about exploring Croatia is that the unexpected is around almost every corner. I have lost count of the number of times I have entered a building and been blown away by the unexpected discoveries inside. 

One building where that is definitely the case is Batthyany Castle in Ludbreg, easily the most impressive and important building in the town. Most visitors only see the castle, which dates back to 1320, from the outside. This is a pity, as the inside is even more exquisite, as you can see from the latest in the TCN series, One Minute Ludbreg. 

If you thought that Croatian administrative buildings were all stuffy relics of the socialist past, take a tour of the office of Ludbreg Mayor, Dubravko Bilic, surely the most beautiful office in all Croatia? 

And what a location! Right next door to the chapel which saw the only certified miracle in all of Croatia, back in 1411. 

Still looking for more? Check out the magic being done on a daily basis at the Ludbreg Restoration Centre. 

One castle, many treasures. See more in the video below, and below that, the other videos in the One Minute Ludbreg series.  

The One Minute Ludbreg video series is a project in paid partnership with the Ludbreg Tourist Board.
