Cultural landscape

Walls and mansions, be it preserved and renovated or covered in ivy, tell tales of the past and make way for your own imagination.

The ivy-clad walls of manor houses and castles in ruins stir the imagination about the past of this region. The stories about the lives of nobles, counts, bishops and other individuals offer you a chance to explore the history. The oldest remains from the 11th century can be found on the castle hill above Stari Trg near Slovenj Gradec and at Inštrajn in Paški Kozjak. Hamlets and isolated farms spread over the hills and somewhat bigger settlements in the valley contribute to the image of Koroška. Surrender to the characteristic features of the landscape created by people over several centuries.

Slovenj Gradec Medieval City Centre





The old city centre preserved the medieval form and the buildings portray an image from the 19th century.

The old city centre preserved the medieval form and the buildings portray an image from the 19th century. The most important cultural institutions are located in the city centre. The old city centre is an important urbanistic monument, since it preserved its original design. In the Middle Ages, the city was surrounded by a wall, which can still be seen with a keen eye behind the Meškova, Ozka and Cankarjeva streets. Even the renovated Rotenturn Manor was built from the former Schulthauzinger Tower. The city is located at the crossroads of the paths leading to Mt. Uršlja Gora and the Pohorje range, offering the travellers coming here primality, a number of unspoiled trails and mysteries worth discovering.
