    A lovely place, and it is always a good idea to give flowers to the ladies.

    I once spent the night in Varazdin while traveling from Munich to Istanbul and Teheran on one of the old Europabuses... Arrived late, left early, and didn't realize it would be such a pretty place to see! I must go back one day...
