THE Slovenia Wine: Top 125 Experiences

One of the oldest settlements in the region, Štanjel is a gorgeous village perched on the side of a hill and notable for its profusion of lovely old buildings. Entering the town through the stone archway is like stepping back in time, gravel streets wind past traditional Karst houses leading onto cute little squares with ancient stone wells. Štanjel castle dates from the Middle Ages and is notable for its art gallery where a permanent display of the work of artist and printmaker Lojze Spacal (1907-2000) can be seen.

The castle’s Štanjel pleasant courtyard is an ideal place to soak up Štanjel’s timeless atmosphere, preferably with a glass of local wine and a plate of famous Karst pruscuitto. Beneath the village the picturesque Ferrari Garden (Ferrarijev Vrt) doesn’t feature any Italian luxury cars, but the well-kept pathways, restored stone walls and mancured flora have nevertheless been declared a national monument. With all this beauty it’s easy to see why Štanjel is one of the most popular destinations for weddings in all of Slovenia.
