vodovodni stolp


The water tower was built in 1914 as a part of the city's water supply system. It is 46 metres high and mostly round with an octagonal reservoir sitting at the top supported by sixteen consoles. Apart from the water tower in Kranj, built in 1911, the Brežice Water Tower is the only example of this kind of building from that time in Slovenia and demonstrates an interesting water supply solution for lowland areas. Powered by a power plant, it was in operation until 1983, while today it invites visitors to Brežice from afar.
After a thorough renovation (2021-2022), it is now open to all visitors from November 26, 2022.

brežice grad


The castle was probably built by the Salzburgers in the 12th century. In the 16th century, during peasant uprisings, it was destroyed and burned several times and then rebuilt. The Attens family turned it into their residence and arranged the so-called The Knight's Hall, which today represents the only example of baroque secular painting in Slovenia. Today, many concerts and other events are held there.
Since 1949, the Posavski Museum of Brežice has also been operating in the castle, where you can see the archaeological collection from prehistoric times until the arrival of the Slavs in this area, objects from the ethnological collection of the 19th and 20th centuries, the collection of Peasant Revolts from the 16th century and many other interesting things.

In the first half of the 12th century, the Rajhenburg Castle was built on a rocky outcrop above Brestanica and the Sava River by Archbishop Konrad of Salzburg. Over the centuries, the castle acquired its present appearance with its many owners. In 1881, the castle was bought by the Trappists and converted into a monastery, which operated until 1941, when the German occupation authorities converted the castle and its buildings into a resettlement camp for the expulsion of Slovenes. It was nationalized in 1947, and a prison operated there until 1966. On the foundations of the Trappist heritage, the Kunej chocolate shop, a wine gallery, a castle cafe, and a castle pastry shop operate within the castle. While walking through the castle, you can see several extremely interesting exhibitions, such as Trappists from Rajhenburg, Castle furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries, Slovenian exiles 1941 - 1945, Primož Kozmos - Honors, Clothing appearance of the Rahjenburgs and other exhibitions.

grad sevnica


Sevniška Castle was probably built in the 12th century. It rises above the city center of Sevnica and the banks of the Sava River. Unlike many other castles, it was not destroyed during the peasant uprisings. Among the many special features of the castle is the Lutheran cellar, which Jurij Dalmatin is said to have visited in the 16th century and, among other things, later served as the tomb of some Sevniš manors, but otherwise little is known about its origins. An essential component of the cellar is its painting, which represents a rare example of the painting technique in oil tempera on a conventional painting base and is an example of mannerism in the painting of the 16th century. Due to its excellent acoustics, it is suitable for holding concerts and other events.
