  • A nice “old town” that is great to explore. The Škofja Loka Castle took me 3 hours ( I’m a geek). The women at the ticket desk are amazingly informative and friendly. There are quite a few vignettes....  more

  • Great venue for events. Open space, secluded and offers a feeling of privacy. It is easily accessible, 10 minute walk from BUS stop. (although the castle is on a hill top). Škofja Loka itself is a "work of art". I recommend a visit.
  • The castle is in the beautiful village of Skofa Loka which is full of wonderful buildings, situated along a clean wide river. The castle is very scenic from the outside and has a good value café where I had a delicious homemade lemonade. There are plenty of places to eat in the village too and shops, both tourist and regular. The village and the castle are well worth a visit. It is easy to get too, about an hour or so by bus from Ljubljana.
