Brežice – a small town with a big heart
A junction of different worlds
Greenery at the confluence of the Sava and Krka, thermal springs, vineyards and rich architectural heritage – this is why Brežice is known to many as the place where different worlds come together.
The Brežice municipality lies on a tectonic fault and is extremely rich in thermal springs, which were discovered near the bank of the Sava more than 200 years ago. The power of the natural thermal water was soon recognized and gradually resulted in the development of Terme Čatež, the largest thermal complex in the country today. The youngest thermal spa in Slovenia, Terme Paradiso, was also constructed on a thermal spring, this time in Dobova. Both offer rich possibilities for relaxing and wellness pampering. You can also charge your batteries with outdoor recreation and leisure activities. We invite you to try out our numerous bike paths and hiking tours into the surrounding hills.
A trip through the hills of the Brežice municipality can also be a wonderful gastronomic experience thanks to the Podgorjanska and Bizeljsko-sremiška wine roads that run there. You can stop at friendly farmhouses and wineries, which always accept guests with open arms and greet them with local delicacies and excellent wine.
Taking a guided tour of the famous Bizeljsko repnicas, true particularities of this area, is also a unique experience. There, you will be impressed by the friendliness of the locals and the excellent selection of wines. Expect nothing less on a guided tour to the cradle of cviček – the Gadova peč Inn, where you will be gladly greeted by the locals in their on duty vineyard cottages.
