Slovenia Things to Do: 544 reviews and 992 photos
A stroll through Celje Castle, the largest castle in Slovenia, takes you back to the times of the powerful Counts and Princes of Celje, brave knights, whirling dancers, and castle lords.
The original castle which was built by the Vovsbergs on the western rocky rise of the castle crest, was a typical building of an irregular castle enclosure.
In the first half of the 14th century the castle was overtaken by lords of Zovnek - named the counts of Celje from 1341 onward and then renamed into the Knights of Celje in 1436 - who started to transform the stronghold into a more confortable residental building.
