CASTLE OF COUNTLESS STORIES

Strmol Castle is situated on the slopes of Dvorjanski hrib ("Mansion Hill") near Cerklje na Gorenjskem. In the 13th century, the Strmol Knights settled here and the fortress was named after them, keeping the same name despite the constant changes of the owners. Throughout the turbulent centuries, Strmol Castle retained its original form, making it one of the oldest and best preserved castles in Slovenia.

Strmol Castle is one of the only two Slovenian castles with original equipment. The last private possessor of Strmol Castle, Rado Hribar, was an industrialist, cosmopolitan, art lover and one of the richest men of his time in our country. He and his wife Ksenija gave the mansion its present appearance. Here they created a place for social gatherings of eminent Slovenian and European nobles of that time. With their sophisticated, cosmopolitan taste, they decorated the castle over the years with a rich collection of artworks and objects of exceptional value, which are still on display today. 

To preserve the cultural heritage, the castle was fully restored during the 2010-2012 period. Today, Strmol Castle is a hotel offering a unique living experience and a luxurious venue for business meetings and personal occasions.

Strmol Castle is an experience to remember forever. And you want it back. Again and again.

It takes you back, to the time of the last owners, Rado and Ksenija Hribar and you just forget the present ... At the time, when architects were changing historic buildings beyond recognition, the Strmol Castle remained the same. Unteachable. A castle that has a soul. And as if this was not enough, there are Jerca, Irena, Branka, Andrej, Damir and Blaž. Without them, we would be lost in the past. They had read every wish of ours from our eyes.
