Paddle among the cultural sights of Novo mesto
Gliding down the river offers a chance to see the many sights Novo mesto has to offer, such as the church of St Nicholas, the picturesque Breg river bank – a popular beauty spot for painters including the painter and graphic artist Božidar Jakac, Kandijski most (bridge), which is part of Novo mesto’s significant technical heritage, and the Franciscan monastery.
You can rent a boat or a stand-up paddle board (SUP) at Loka, in the Beach bar, and head down the Krka River. The course will lead you under four bridges and past two castles, Kamen and Novi dvor – the latter of which was reconstructed into a hospital in 1945, and is also known as the residence of Julija Primic, the well-known muse of France Prešeren. As you sail ahead you will be able to admire all the sights, which give Novo mesto its distinctive appearance.
