Castles are a rich source of architectural and cultural heritage in Slovenia. One of them is Brdo Castle, which stretches over a huge, well-kept estate. The castle is best known as one of the residences of the Karađorđević Kingdom. In the time of Yugoslavia, the estate offered a home to high state representatives, and today it is the most famous protocol facility of the Republic of Slovenia.
During the Second World War, most of the castles in Slovenia were looted, one of the few that remained undamaged is Strmol Castle, located at the foot of the Kamnik Alps. Like Brdo Castle, Strmol Castle is a protocol facility, which can only be visited by prior appointment. The beautifully preserved castle, the well-kept surroundings and, above all, the story of the last owners of the castle, attract history-seeking visitors.
We will start our trip with a short walk through the park of the magnificent Brdo Castle. The former estate of Prince Karađorđević is known as a protocol facility in which the Slovenian government receives important international guests. On a relaxing walk through the park you can admire the rich flora and fauna and get to know many sights, such as Brdo Castle, the former castle dock, the old greenhouse, a valuable sculptural collection, a typical Slovenian apiary, straw-covered hayracks.
This will be followed by lunch in one of the local restaurants and a drive to Strmol Castle, which is one of the oldest and best preserved castles in Slovenia and is one of two castles in Slovenia with preserved original equipment from the time of the last owners, the Hribar couple. On a guided tour, we will learn about the history of the castle and the fate of the eccentric last owners of the castle.
I still can’t decide which one was more fantastic – Brdo Castle or Strmol Castle. They both fascinate you. Really nice trip!
