  • At about twenty kilometers from Ptuj an eighteenth-century residence in a beautiful bucolic context. The inside you visit unfortunately only by appointment and not possible during my passage. I recommend a detour anyway by combining it with the visit of Ptujska Gora.

  • Castle was not open at the time of our visit. Still enjoyed a lunch on the bench outside the castle which is located on top of a small hill. Nice drive in the country side along vineyards and rolling ...  more »

  • A nice piece of history. Has a big collection of all sorts of artefacts. Well worth visiting if you are in the vicinity. Nice wine cellar also.
  • If you are trekking a loooong almost forgetton trail around Boč, it will lead you pass the beautiful Štatenberg mansion. Lots of times people say "castle Štatenberg", which is wrong. There really is another castle in the hills high above Makole, that really was the original castle, but most people haven't even heard of it. Now there are only a couple of ruins, hardly recognized. It was built in the 13th century, but in the 17th century it's owners decided to move lower in the valley closer to places of power and they built this mansion. The insides are also very nice, so i recommend a tour through a castle, which is also a museum and serves as offices of tourist bureau. There is also an restaurant and a wine cellar of Makole Winery Association. There is no mansion park, but there are some ponds north of it. If you want to see more of the similar near by, visit the Studenice monastery. If you are adventurous, you can walk a whole trail around Boč - Po vinskih goricah na Boč - Through vineyards on Boč and back again, but inform yourself first, because partially it is sparsely marked. Near a part of the trail there is a karst cave "Jama Belojača" / "Belojača cave". Boč mountain and it's close surroundings have some karst characteristics.
