The architectural landscape of Slovenia was characterised by various stylistic periods, economic and political conditions, and cultural components.
Slovenia is rich in castles, manors, fortresses, and fortification systems. These were built at various times during the medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods, and the first traces of their construction date all the way back to antiquity. Time got the better of many of them, but dozens now fulfil interesting functions.
Churches and monasteries
There are almost no villages or hills in Slovenia that do not have a church, and Slovenia is also full of convents, monasteries, and roadside shrines. For an authentic experience, join a pilgrimage to the Mary Help of Christians Church in Brezje, ring the bell of wishes on Bled Island, and try the pear brandy from the Pleterje Monastery.
The oldest in the world
The oldest instrument, a needle, a wooden wheel with an axle – only in Slovenia can you see some of the oldest objects that have significantly affected the technical development of modern man and his spirituality. Here, you can find proof that people have always known how to have some fun. In addition to museums, the sites where exceptional artefacts were found and their surrounding areas are also worth a visit, as they combine the offer of cultural experiences, active tourism, and excellent cuisine.
