Novo Mesto

Novo Mesto is the city on a bend of the Krka River in the City Municipality of Novo Mesto in southeastern Slovenia, close to the border with Croatia. The town is traditionally considered the economic and cultural centre of the historical Lower Carniola region.HistoryNovo Mesto has been settled since pre-history. The city is one of the most important archeological sites of the Hallstatt culture and has been nicknamed the "City of Situlas" after numerous situlas found in the area. Graben Castle down the Krka River, ancestral seat of the noble House of Graben von Stein, was first mentioned in an 1170 deed. The town itself was founded by the Habsburg archduke Rudolf IV of Austria on 7 April 1365 as Rudolfswerth. The Austrian Habsburgs received the Carniolan March from the hands of Emperor Louis IV in 1335 and in 1364 Rudolf "the Founder" proclaimed himself a Duke of Carniola. The name Neustadt was given in the early 15th century.Until 1918, the town was part of the Austrian monarchy, head of the district of the same name, one of the 11 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Carniola province. The name Neustadtl was used before 1867.
