Novo Celje Mansion

  Novo Celje     more than a year ago
We love this place. The large mansion house is undergoing reconstruction, but right now it’s still mostly unrenovated. Yet it is still one of the most beautiful buildings in the Lower Savinja Valley. That is part of its charm. It’s a magnificent Baroque architectural creation. In the 20th century it has been used as an asylum, a post-WWII hospital for contagious diseases and as a home for the infirm. Renovations are in the early stages and you’ll find peeling paint and holes from previous reconstructions. Its ‘falling apart’ feel doesn’t extend to the large entrance hall room and small chapel just off it. Both of these are used for weddings. Upstairs there is another large hall where they hold concerts as part of the Seviqc Brežice early music festival each year. Time has not been kind to it, but it is still standing. And if its good for weddings and concerts, it’s good for us.
