Ethnological heritage and farm life today

Bistrica ob Sotli – kopun & other local culinary specialities

Duration: all year round, most recommended from April to November.


The way of life in the rural areas of Obsotelje and Kozjansko is very varied due to the diversity of natural features, specific development throughout history, proximity to the national border and other factors. In a one-day visit, we get a piece of the picture of life in the area by visiting the people who live in daily interdependence with nature and its gifts.

The current flow of life has its roots in the past. We start the day with a visit to one of the ethnological and historical collections (Rogatec Open Air Museum or Kozjanski Park, etc.). Through exhibitions and a few hands-on workshops, the secrets of the way of life of the local people begin to unravel.

Midday is the time to jump to the present. This is followed by a warm welcome at one of the specialised farms (depending on the season – organic farm, wine farm, etc.). After a tasty snack, the host introduces us to his estate and activities. But the best way to get to know a slice of life is to pick up a tool and do one of the daily chores together!

Each session is followed by a rest and fun activities (games, etc.) to shorten the time until dinner, with homemade delicacies from the kitchen and cellar. The evening passes quickly with a song and a dance step.

TWO AND MULTI-DAY PROGRAMMES include a stay and further proposals for discovering the characteristics of rural life in Obsotelje and Kozjansko, as well as opportunities for relaxation and holidays.

    The destination of Obsotelje and Kozjansko with its centres – Rogaška Slatina, Podčetrtek, Rogatec, Šmarje pri Jelšah, Kozje, and Bistrica ob Sotli – offers interesting experiences for both day visitors and those who choose to stay longer.

    The programmes prepared for the EXPERIENCES offer insights into the different areas of the connection between nature and man and the richness of the creativity of the many generations that have lived here.

    The programmes are designed to accommodate the number of visitors (individual guests – groups of up to 5 people, smaller groups – up to 15 people, larger groups – over 15 people), the desired length of stay (half- and one-day programmes, two- and multi-day programmes), and the varied interests and purposes of the visit (from discovering the richness of nature, cultural, historical and ethnological sights and features, relaxation, health-enhancing and fun activities, to sporting and recreational activities, etc.).

    The content of the programmes is also adapted to the seasons, and the most recommended times of the year are indicated for each programme presented.

    The experience programmes “Obsotelje and Kozjansko na palm”, “Days in the countryside”, “Richness of mind and spirit”, “Nature energises and heals”, “Peek into the pot” and “On the move” are tailor-made according to the basic characteristics of the interested parties.

    The programmes were developed in the framework of the project “TROK – TOURISTIC OVERVIEWS OF OBSOTELJE AND KOZJANSKY”, where Fontus, as the project promoter for the design and marketing of integral tourist products of Obsotelje and Kozjansko, was a candidate for the 1st. the public call “LAS Obsotelje in Kozjansko” for the selection of projects for the implementation of the Local Development Strategy 2007-2013, and was selected for co-financing by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food (MAFF) within the framework of the Rural Development Programme of the Republic of Slovenia for the period 2007-2013 (RDP RS) LEADER.
