Experience LIVE HISTORY on the Old Castle Celje, taking place every weekend from APRIL to OCTOBER.

The Counts and Dukes of Celje left behind them the biggest medieval castle in the country, a consolidated town nucleus and eternally living myth, which connects all generations of Celje inhabitants. Come to play with counts on the Old Castle Celje, where medieval societies from all around Slovenia present knight’s customs and traditions every weekend during the summer season. The height of the season is a medieval day in August, when the castle and the town revive as at the time of the Counts of Celje.

Museums and galleries

Get to know the story about rise of the Counts of Celje on the exhibition of the Regional Museum in the Duke’s Palace, which also preserves the ancient Celeia treasures. Walk leisurely like a count through the town, fond of heroes, sports and arts. Take a photo in a unique studio of the master Pelikan, one of the most exclusive photo studios in Europe in the last century, at present under the aegis of the Museum of Recent History Celje. Visit the only erotic gallery of Slovenia in the premises of the former erotic nightclub Račka.  Since the times of forbidden and tragic love between the count Friderick and Veronika, Celje has been destined to be the city of great love stories.

Guarantee yourselves a COMBINED TICKET to visit the Old Castle Celje and Regional Museum Celje or Museum of Recent History Celje.
