Create an itinerary including Štanjel Castle
For a bit of nostalgia, go to Štanjel Castle, overlooking the Vipava Valley. Fortified against Ottoman attacks in the 17th century, this town suffered great damage during World War II. Slowly renovated during the subsequent years, the town remains an important reminder of history, with its medieval castle, parish church, and garden, which overlooks the karst landscape below it.

  • A beautiful medieval town, the weather wasn’t perfect when we got there, would love to visit it in the future.
  • Nice calm place, old ruines with pretty views
  • Enjoy and relax with a walk in superb castle garden.
  • Lovely grounds for a walk and fun to explore.
  • Stayed in the castle overnight on our hike across Slovenia. It was quiet and comfortable. Access to WiFi and our suites have kitchens and bathrooms. Could not ask for much more.
