If you get hungry, you can enjoy medieval feasts prepared at many castles. At Tabor Castle above Laško, you will be served attractive Slovenian dishes. Trebnik Mansion offers its own excellent natural cosmetic and food lines that can be bought in their internet shop.
 
Castles and mansions of the Land of Celje each have their own stories, often attracting visitors from distant areas. The most picturesque is definitely Strmol Mansion with its religious reconstructed blue and grey facade. Novo Celje Mansion was probably built following the Schönbrunn example and is known as one of the Slovenian baroque jewels. Surrounded with a park where you can see exotic trees is the charming and mysterious Jelšingrad Castle, which is the only oriental-style mansion in Slovenia.

Unfortunately, the ravages of time were merciless to many castles, which have become overgrown and mysterious ruins that, however, mustn't be underestimated. The ruins of Žovnek Castle, where the story of the Counts of Celje began, and other castle ruins still have much to offer: precious moments of peace and relaxation and a fantasy escape into the past may awaken the thrill of exploration in you.
