The town of Velika Nedelja (“Great Sunday” or “Easter”) and the castle were named after an important battle on Easter Day in 1199 when Friderik of Ptuj supposedly snatched the still unpopulated land in this area from the Hungarians. He later granted it to the Knights Templars.
Two important monuments to this history are the Holy Trinity Church and the castle which you can inspect the chapel, an ethnological collection, and the “Velika Nedelja through the Centuries” history exhibition. The ethnological collection displays 900 items that bear witness to the life of the local people. The castle chapel was the original home of world-famous statues of Sv. Barbara and Sv. Katarina from 1410 now kept in the Ptuj Regional Museum.
Special feature:
The origin of the town is linked to the arrival of the Teutonic Knights, who established an estate here.
Tour of the Church of the Holy Trinity, mentioned as a chapel before 1199.
