Change the course of history at The Old Castle of Celje

The idea about the interactive VR experience which changes the course of history at Celje Old Castle was awarded by the Slovenian Tourist Board at the Days of Slovenian Tourism in 2017, when the 1st hackathon for creating new, innovative, 5-star experiences was held.

It took more than a year to develop the idea and the concept. It was brought together by a team of passionate individuals, most of them came from Thermana Laško. The idea was also tested on the guests of this spa resort for the first time.

The innovative product gives the user the power to influence the course of history with his actions, and offers an opportunity to get to know the colorful Middle Ages, the time of mighty Counts of Celje and the story of the tragic love between Friderik and Veronika.

Since the interactive VR experience takes place in the highly elaborate environment of the Celje Old Castle, the product placement into the largest castle fort in Slovenia – the Old Castle of Celje – was something logical to do. This is why this unique VR experience is now part of the Live History project, which takes place at the castle each weekend until autumn.

The product also received another award: the Celje Regional Chamber of Commerce gave the innovators a silver award and recognized the project as an innovative move.

Make sure to visit the Old Castle of Celje and try out this unique VR experience!
