MALI GRAD - town of fortresses and castles

We invite you to a rare and enthralling journey through our town. There are three streets in it where fortresses and castles from different countries, various in their architecture and build time, are situated. The models differ from their originals only by size. Masters worked assiduously, with amazing accuracy reconstructing the finest details of architecture, decor, and landscape.


The town of Brežice boasts rich natural and cultural heritage, which visitors can admire every step of the way. Visit numerous castles that have left a mark on the town and the surroundings: Mokrice Castle with a top restaurant and a 200-year old English park, Brežice Castle hosting the Posavje Museum and the Knights' Hall as well as the Pišece Castle and Bizeljsko Castle, watching over the nearby vineyards. In the centre of Brežice the Water Tower is proudly reaching towards the sky. We also recommend you take a walk across another feature that the town is known for – the old bridge across Sava and Krka.


In the Bizeljsko region the hospitable locals will be happy to show you the unique "repnice" - caves, dug in flint-stone, and invite you to a glass of exquisite wine. You will take a peek into the nest of the interesting European bee-eater. The ethnographic collection and blacksmith museum will take you several hundred years back into the past.

While hiking in the Gorjanci, the hills with numerous water springs, known for legends and fairy tales, you might run into the Čatež Dwarf. According to the legend, where the Čatež Dwarf was seen, people often found springs of good water.
