  The Castle of Metlika
by croisbeauty
 
 

The castle town of Metlika was first mentioned in 1456, but probably it is older. The castle was built to protect the Corynthia region from the constant Turks invasion.
Metlika boasts three pitoresque squares. The Bela Krajina Regional Museum in Metlika Castle presents the Bela Krajina region from prehistoric times to the middle of the 20th century.
Because the first volunteer fire department in Slovenia was established in Metlika in 1869, Metlika is now home of the Firefighting Museum of Slovenia.
