Veliki Tabor is a fortress in northwestern Croatian, near Desinic, at an altitude of 334 m. It is a first-class heritage monument, one of the best preserved medieval cities in Croatia and a representative of the fortification architecture of the late Middle Ages. Its name derives from the name of the camp which meant war camp or fortifications built to defend against the Turks. Veliki Tabor is one of the best preserved late medieval and Renaissance fortified cities in the continental Croatia. According to architectural forms, building techniques and method of fortification dates from the second half of the 15th century.
