Count’s Reception


What would you say about bringing business partners, friends, or your loved ones to conjure up the medieval glory of Celje? The inner courtyard is the main red carpet venue of the Old Castle of Celje.

Each time when the silence is broken by the sounds of fanfare turning the clock back for centuries, his Eminence, Count Herman II of Celje and his daughter, Queen Barbara, enter accompanied by their entourage. No, this is not a historical movie; rather a Counts Reception at the Old Castle of Celje. Relive the glory and power that accompanied the Counts of Celje, and step into the boots of the charismatic count who with his political savvy and diplomatic sentiment paved the way for the citizens of Celje to the stars. Medieval dances are best remembered for tamburitza tunes and flutes playing high above Celje, while the knights’ skillful swordplay made it clear why the Counts of Celje have remained invincible for so long. The Counts Reception is organised upon a group request.

The programme includes:

  • reception at the castle gate;
