Cycling around Celje and its surrounding area is a great way to explore the city rich with history from both the period of Ancient Celeia, once named the Second Troy, and the exciting Middle Ages. Above the city, the Old Castle of Celje still stands today, symbolizing the Counts of Celje. The Old Town impresses with exhibitions in museums and galleries, while families are drawn to a diverse range of experiences for children at the Tehnopark and Tropska hiša (Tropical House). The green hinterland of the city is divided into three areas: the Lake Šmartinsko, the Hills of Celje and the City Forest with the Tree House. All three offer diverse terrains for enthusiasts of different cycling disciplines, with both easy trails and more challenging paths through forests. The city also offers an easy bicycle rental system for regular and e-bikes called KolesCe, and is developing cycling infrastructure in cooperation with neighbouring municipalities.
