Dolenjska, different experiences


The municipality of Mirna lies on the edge of the Mirna Valley, at the confluence of the Mirna River and the Zabrščica and Vejar streams. The administrative and administrative center of the municipality is the town of Mirna, which is only 7 km away from the A2 motorway, which connects Ljubljana and Zagreb. The Mirna Valley offers many opportunities for rest, sightseeing of natural and cultural sights, as well as activities for active leisure. The surrounding hills offer opportunities for recreation and hiking, and are also famous for their vineyards and vineyard cottages, where friendly locals are happy to offer homemade wine and meat products and other homemade products. The highest surrounding hill, Debenec, is a popular vantage point from which the Julian Alps can be seen in fine weather.

Bridges in the Mirna Valley

There are few places in Europe that can boast of such quality bridges as can be seen in the Mirna Valley. The bridges are solidly built of cut limestone, statically accurately recalculated, with exquisitely executed partition arches and a unique feel for the urban whole of the settlement.

Church of St. Helene and Mirna

It was first mentioned in the archives in 1581, when, like the parish church and the church on Ševnica, it was a branch of the Trebanj parish. Despite its older origins, today's image shows that the building is of a single origin. It was built in 1841.

Chapel of Peter Paul Glavar

In addition to Baraga, Peter Pavel Glavar also brought the glory of the region along Temenica and Mirna to the world with his Enlightenment writings on bees and the promotion of the economy in order to teach farmers. He was the owner of Lanšprež Castle, which was demolished after the war. In Lanšprež, the chapel of St. Martin has been restored, where Peter Pavel Glavar is buried, and near the chapel there is still a hayrack with 10 pillars from the 18th century, which was built by the then landowner Peter Pavel Glavar.

Beekeeping of the Temeniška and Mirna valleys, Lanšprež Estate

Beekeeping has a long tradition in the area of the Temeniška - Mirna Valley, connected with the central beekeeping center in Lanšprež and Peter Pavle Glavar, a priest, enlightener and patron. Today, in the area around Temenica and Mirna, we are increasingly proud of our rich cultural heritage and successful beekeepers, who unite in three beekeeping societies, the Trebnje Beekeepers' Association, the Šentrupert Beekeeping Association and the Mokronog-Trebelno Beekeeping Association. Quality honey and other honey products are most easily found in homes

CITY OF MIRNA - Sleeping beauty

Mirna Castle with its proximity, extended in the plane to the settlement of Mirna, is an indispensable emphasis on the final scenery of one of the most valuable views in the Mirna Valley. The castle was marked by all historical periods from Roman times, through the early and high Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century, and the medieval castle was probably built towards the end of the 11th century. When you step into the courtyard of the castle, you are first surprised by a large mass of palaces, as a jewel you see the Renaissance bridge, which is newly covered with red brick, and by far the most impressed by the arcades. An improvised stage has been set up at the south-eastern part of the walls, where various cultural events take place in the summer.
