7.4.10: Touring Varaždin

Posted in General issues |

Today  we were able to experience Varaždin’s rich history. Guided by Bogdan, we visited the castle museum in the Old Town. Having served as a fortress centuries ago, this place carried us back in time allowing us to imagine how life was then.

After the tour and several group pictures in front of the castle we sat down to have some coffee and were delighted by a group of kids performing who attend a Rock and Roll Academy. We were treated to several performances by some very talented kids.

Our next stop was the Entomological Museum. The museum hosted an impressive collection of insects. After lunch at the student cafe the FOI students took us to the Varaždin pool.  The recreation center was an Croatian equivalent to an American YMCA.
