Žužemberk Castle is one of the most picturesque in Slovenia. Its history goes back to the 13th century, and its defenses were reinforced with seven huge round towers in the 16th century. From 1538 until World War II, it was owned by the noble Auersperg family from Turjak. During the war, the castle was heavily bombarded, but restorations began in the 1960’s and the castle now hosts cultural and tourist events in the summer.
