Varaždin Wows The New York Times

varazdinSome great pre-season promotion for the beautiful Croatian city of Varaždin yesterday with a lengthy feature in one of the world’s most popular daily newspapers…

The New York Times, whose website has over 40 million worldwide monthly readers, have praised Varaždin in an article titled ‘In Varazdin, a Thriving Arts Scene Emerges’.

Croatia may be most famous for its picturesque Dalmatian Coast dotted with medieval cities like Dubrovnik. Varazdin, an inland city of 50,000 one hour north of Zagreb, has an equally rich history, but over the last several years it has become even better known as a hub for culture. Its festivals celebrate everything from contemporary art and dance to Baroque and rock music, and artists, ateliers and government initiatives continue to enhance an already vivid scene – writes The New York Times reporter after a visit to Varaždin earlier this year.

It is not the first time The New York Times have written about the quaint Croatian city. At the start of last year The New York Times listed Varaždin in its ’52 Places to Go in 2014′.

“Bearing in mind the influence of The New York Times and the concrete effect being named as a top destination in 2014 had, you can say that this article sets Varaždin aside in an increasingly dynamic tourist market, ” said the Varaždin Tourist Board.
