About Hotel Trakoscan
Trakoscan was once a residential castle (Latin "Arx Thacorum") surrounded by a Romanesque garden and lake and is presently an eminent museum with rich historical content. The Castle complex receives over 200,000 visitors per year, making it the most visited in Croatia and the region. In particular, the distinctive feature of the castle is formed by a big artificial lake, about a mile long and a half mile wide and at a depth of just 2.5 meters which means the water is warm in summer at around 22 °C.
