This is a pleasant walk up the hill over the quaint town of Skofja Loka. The signs outside fill you in on the history of the place, which has been the site of castle fortifications since the 900s. There are two ruined castles on the property, but the main event is the huge building that now houses a museum. We were warmly welcomed by the guide at the front desk, who gave a lengthy explanation to my friends in Slovene about the rich history of this place. Sadly they've run out of money to fully restore the chapel once used by bishops and Ursuline nuns, but what's there is lovely. They've put a lot of thought into the exhibits, covering everything from early Slovene language, to the life of Austrian aristocracy to local sports heroes.There's also a war section -- a reminder that this castle was occupied by Germans in WWII and later used as a prison for German POWs. In the garden outside, we ran into several wedding parties and a group of young boys touring the old farmhouse exhibits. Time well spent. Although many of the signs are in English, you'll learn more if you understand Slovene or come with someone who can help translate and explain the history.

The castle is a landmark building, impossible to miss in Skofja Loka. The walk to it is a pleasant stroll uphill from the town centre. In theory you can reach it by car, but the road is narrow and not easy to find and the parking is limited. Inside the castle is a museum with archaeological exhibits, several rooms showing the local crafts, a nice shop. In the garden behind the castle is a small open-air museum and one of the houses relocated there is opened on Saturdays. The castle also houses a gallery with (frequently very nice) temporary exhibitions.
