Day trips


In and around Gradenc  you can enjoy peace, space and fresh air. But of course there is also plenty of opportunity to make fun day trips.

Below we list a few options.


The capital of Ljubljana lies 55 km from Gradenc, a 45-minute drive. Ljubljana is one of the smallest capitals of Europe and has a pleasant car-free center with many terraces along the river "Ljubljanica".



Lake Bloško

At  this beautiful lake, which is an hour's drive away, a number of people have been very creative with wood and there are many different wooden sculptures to see. There is a restaurant with terrace, playground, and you can go hiking, cycling, swimming and fishing. Recommended! 

Terme Čatež

If  you are on holiday with children, Terme Čatež is a must. This is Slovenia's largest water park and is a  50 minutes drive away. You can easily enjoy a whole day here with your kids because  there is plenty to do.


Bogenšperk castle

One of the many castles in Slovenia  is Bogenšperk Castle,  a 50-minute drive away, near  Litija. The castle is especially popular as a wedding location, but it also houses a museum. The castle garden is freely accessible.



Kumrovec is located just over the border in Croatia at an hour and a half drive and is the birth village of Josip Broz, aka Tito. Here you can visit his birth house, which was built in 1860. The village has a total of 18 houses that have been preserved completely in traditional style and have been arranged as an ethnological open-air museum.

Velika planina

Although it is a 2-hour drive to Velika planina, it is absolutely worth it! At more than 1,600 meters high, these extensive alpine meadows with their typical wooden shepherd huts are a pleasure to walk around on. You can get there by cable car and can then continue on foot or with a chair lift. In the summer, the cows  roam freely.
