It dates back to the THIRTEENTH century but with great remakes fifteenth. Easy to walk in just under half an hour, it offers a nice view across the area. Little to see inside it unfortunately if you exclude the room of torture. Still worth the visit.
If you are in the vicinity, well worth a visit. An interesting castle, but it is its location and the views from it which make it most spectacular. more »
Amazing view especially on a sunny day. You can see the whole city (Celje) from the highest tower. Entrance fee (6€) includes access to both towers as well as Theater of horror. IMHO this is the best view you can get from any castle in Slovenia.
Interesting castle to visit. On top of the hill ovrrlooks city of Celje. Highest tower offers nice view. Very interesting is also The Theatre of Horror, with old torture devices like Iron maiden. Gives you chills. Very nice experience.
