During the study of early modern history, Zrinski family, church history and history of culture came into the focus of my interest. These topics are united in the field of cultural history of early modern courts, which is the theme of my research. Culture of princely courts is an important part of European early modern history. This research paper is written with an aim to broaden scientific achievements about courts of Zrinskis in Čakovec and court of Zagreb's bishops in 17. century, as representatives of clerical and secular residences of Croatian nobility. Princely culture of Zrinskis and bishops is described on the sample of cultural units, such as defense system, interior design, portraits, libraries and treasury chamber. The theorethic base of this paper is cultural history and sociology of culture. Although the cultural units observed in this work are a part of traditional cultural history, the concepts of new cultural history have also been used. Scientific methods of comparative analysis and analitical method are used in order to compare the two courts, with an aim to discover the development of the luxury expenditure and development of resident culture in the courts of Čakovec and Zagreb. Scientific sources used in this work are lists of confiscated goods of the family Zrinski in Čakovec, and texts written by the contemporary authors in 17. century, which describe the court of Čakovec. For bishop's court in Zagreb, inventory of bishop's palace and texts of contemporary authors are used as primary sources. In order to put the Croatian courts in European context, secondary literature about cultural history of European courts is used to strenghten the conclusions about court culture in Čakovec and Zagreb. Courts of Čakovec and Zagreb's bishops in 17. century are situated near the Ottoman border, and their court culture is determined by their geopolitical position. In the terms of constant warefare, the observed courts have managed to achieve a developed court culture, which resembles to court culture of Middle European region.
