The entrance and the walls of the country’s largest medieval castle make you feel like entering a saga of the Counts of Celje. You either learn more about it at the Tourist Information Centre or join the guides for a tour full of knowledge and plenty of interesting anecdotes. Did you know that Barbara of Celje, daughter of Herman II, Count of Celje, was the highest-ranking crowned head in Slovenian history? Have you ever heard about the fatal love story between Frederick II and Veronica of Desenice, considered to be one of the most passionate and tragic stories in this country’s history? Visit Frederick’s Tower and Café Veronika. In the meantime, immortalise the experience with photos and souvenir shopping. The doors of the Old Castle of Celje are open every day of the year.
We recommend a joint ticket for the Old Castle and the Celje Regional Museum or the Museum of Recent History in the old town.
