Fodor's Review

Gradska vijećnica, one of Europe's oldest city halls, is still in use. This imposing landmark has been the seat of Varaždin's public administration since December 14, 1523. Restored after the great fire of 1776, it received a thorough external makeover in 1793. From May through October you can stop by on a Saturday morning between 11 and noon to watch the changing of the guard called Purgari, a 250-year-old tradition that lives on.
