Baroque profane architecture in Hrvatsko zagorje during the 18th century is marked by a wide variation of different project solutions which represent, to some extent, social and political circumstances of the period. Architecture situated in country estates is multifunctional; it is used for liesure, living, production, farming, but also as a representative mean for the family. Patačić family during the late 17th and throught the 18th century became one of the most powerful families among Croatian nobility. Their class, financial and social power is also visible in their buildings. Focal points of this research are several examples of their castles: main family estate Zajezda, castle Martijanec, Vrbovec, Krkanec and Trnovec. Castles of family Patačić also represent relations among Croatian nobility considering marital and economical exchange. Family Patačić had great significance on Habsburgs court as their consulars which ensured them to be in touch with central european architectural trends. Chosen examples in this research are compared with other relevant examples of noble architecture, both in northwest Croatia and all around the former Habsburg Monarchy. Also, part of this thesis is analysis of an iluminated manuscript, Status Familiae Patachich, written by Aleksandar Patačić which represents important document that shows perception of family realestates as a part of their inheritance. Analysis of chosen examples and the manuscript redefined importance of these castles in Croatian baroque arhitecture and within this thesis also proposes possible sources used within the architectural projects.
