You can visit the town's official website at http://www.varazdin.hr. The Faculty building, adjacent to the town Cathedral, used to be a monastery. The building overlooks the picturesque central square with the Town Hall, one of the historical buildings gathered around the square. The Town Hall, reconstructed in the 16th century, contains typical elements of both Gothic and Baroque architecture.
