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


A mixture of natural features and a wide range of economic, political and cultural influences has left the destination with a diverse trace of the creativity (tangible and intangible) of local people and a diverse range of newcomers.

The day begins with an introduction to spiritual values, visiting one of the still alive and functioning spiritual temples, which is also an important monument of Renaissance or Baroque architecture in the region and in Slovenia (St.Rok with Calvary – Šmarje pri Jelšah, Svete Gore).

You can get to know the vibrancy of life and architectural features of settlements in the past by visiting one of the medieval squares (Podsreda, Pilštanj, Lemberg, Rogatec) and castles or manor houses (Podsreda Castle, Strmol Manor House).

After a midday break with lunch in a special setting, we will see the creation of special products that bring the name of the area to the world (glassmaking, organ making, other handicrafts). And don’t miss a visit to the ambiance, which is the result of a special natural source – healing mineral water. The spa park and the varied architecture of the buildings, which still welcome many guests, also testify to the strong influence of foreigners in the development and creation of the area. Whether listening to the sounds of the promenade music or admiring the gallery exhibition, you can experience a piece of a completely different world from the one around you. But the day ends with culinary specialities that reflect the diversity of the destination and the creativity of the current generations of restaurateurs, and a slice of the cultural pulse of the current generations (music, song, dance, etc.).

TWO AND MULTI-DAY PROGRAMMES include a stay and further proposals to discover the creative aspects of life in Obsotelje and Kozjansko, as well as opportunities to enrich your own mind and spirit.
