  • On my second time to visit Celje in Slovenia I am walk to the old castle on the mountain. It has a nice history and a good looking around from there

  • The man at the reception is really friendly. He gave our daugter a paper crown. Inside there are two open towers holding a museum, bar and that's basically it. Gor for an hours or max two.

  • Very nice and not so crowded strangely. With a bit more marketing i am sure more tourists would come around and appreciate it. It is very well kept/ restored!
  • We parked below the castle. It was nice a quiet walk uphill. We did not visit the inside of the castle. The central Celje is also nice place to go to.
