GREEN TIP: Visiting sights on foot or by bike

Air quality in Slovenia has significantly improved in recent decades, but the concentration of pollutants in the air is still too high. Reducing the personal carbon footprint in transport has a strong impact on improving air quality. Therefore, use your personal energy to visit the sights of our place. Walking and cycling reduce the personal carbon footprint and have a positive effect on health. Let’s act responsibly and behave green!

Galerija Božidar Jakac – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Kostanjevica na Krki
Exhibition opening: Erik Mavrič: The long black summer
23. 09. 2022

The solo exhibition of the painter and draftsman Erik Mavrič will address some of the fundamental existential problems of everyday life, such as the repetition of tasks and duties, being trapped in the patterns of social norms, the melancholy of hopelessness, impermanence and transience. Mavrič is one of the most enigmatic domestic artists who, in his diverse artistic practice, refers to many techniques and genres from the past and places them in the field of contemporary art; his distinctly modern and current motifs are inspired by social realism, expressionism and cubism, among others.

The exhibition will be opened on Friday, September 23 at 7:00 p.m.

Galerija Božidar Jakac – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Kostanjevica na Krki
Exhibition opening: Maša Jazbec: Synthetic Organisms
09. 09. 2022 - 26. 02. 2023

With the exhibition Synthetic Organisms, the artist and researcher Maša Jazbec focuses on the ideas about the coexistence of humans and robots which is the synthesis of the years of research in humanoid robots. A spatial installation in the former monastery church addresses number of fundamental, social and ethical questions with visual means about understanding of life and being alive, the relationship between organic and inorganic matter, and possible substitutability of the human kind.


The Slovenia Green Wellness Route (SGWR) is a cycling itinerary that combines Slovenia’s most sought-after strengths: fantastic cycling; responsible travel; incredible culture; wonderful food and wine; and, at the end each day, a session in one of the country’s world-class spas to rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul. The route averages about 40 kilometers of moderate cycling per day on mixed surfaces with more than two-thirds of the trail paved. The route weaves around the peaceful, beautiful, thermal-water-filled eastern half of the country. Along the way, the trail’s stages pass through Slovenia Green-certified destinations, where travelers will experience jaw-dropping landscapes and safe cycling for all skill levels, from veterans looking for new challenges to beginners, who are rediscovering the joy of using their own power to fuel an incredible holiday.

Galerija Božidar Jakac – Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Kostanjevica na Krki
15. 06. 2022 - 02. 10. 2022

The major retrospective at Galerija Božidar Jakac showcases a comprehensive overview of the artistic endeavour of Vladimir Makuc who is considered to be one of the most iconic visual artists from Slovenia. Even though he was initially acclaimed as a master of printmaking the exhibition presents different developmental phases of his distinctly interdisciplinary practice which also extends to the fields of drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and various hybrid techniques. Makuc has therefore continuously explored and modified the course of his artistic expression.

The Royal Seven

The royal seven. Seven castles with a colourful history. Five of them are still as magnificent as it gets, two, however, show the ravages of time, but will nevertheless wow you with various fascinating castle chronicles and local legends. Although the seven castles are steeped in a shared history, each of them has written its own unique story over the centuries, thus shaping a one-of-a-kind character. A colourful kaleidoscope of stories paved the way for various authentic experiences that are bound to impress even the most discerning visitors.
