In the beautiful ambience of the Cviček Wine Cellar, you will get a feel for the life of a Dolenjska man, become familiar with the history of production and cellaring, and taste the wines of winemakers united in Cviček Consortium. The consortium was established in 2004 and unites 12 major producers of Cviček PTP in the Dolenjska region, which provides Cviček with uniform quality and controlled geographical origin. In addition to wine, they serve a local specialty called “cop na lop” (salty cake made of overheated cream). The tasting lasts about an hour.

Kranjska sivka (the Carniolan honey bee) was given a home in the town apiary in Kostanjevica na Krki, a cultural masterpiece and important part of our heritage, which was restored by the Kostanjevica na Krki Beekeepers’ Association in 2017 and placed on a meadow near the Božidar Jakac Art Museum. It attracts many visitors who enjoy the unspoiled nature with a view of the Gorjanci. A uniformed man made of wood, standing in front of the beehive, keeps the peace around the apiary. An interesting feature of the town apiary is the three-pitched roof, which is a rarity and a special feature of Slovenian beehives.
