Last weekend we hosted excellent Japanese photographer Yuya Matsuo, who travels the world and takes photographs of natural and architectural sights. He spent past few years mostly in Balkan states, and now visited Slovenia for the very first time. His online promotion channels (website
) reach more than 130.000 followers and his photos are very appreciated.
In three days of his visit, we tried to present him overall tourist offer of our local community. We visited Terme Čatež
and Terme Paradiso
, all our castles (Brežice
with Posavje museum
), Ban's homestead
, so called Holy mountains and last but not least Najger sand caves
with best regional vines. Due to fogy days, which mostly prevented perfect landscape photos, we made a stop at Kostanjevica and its cave, Božidar Jakac gallery and visited the old island town. We tried local delicacies at Šekoranja Inn
and Pension Les Inn
Yuya was positively surprised about diversity of our tourist offer and after he got to know that during summer season the whole area lives with the tourism, we already began to arrange his summer comeback.
Below are two photos - Knights Hall of Brežice castle and Church of Pišece, which Yuya shared at his social media profiles. At the same time we are looking forward to additional photo stories, made by him.
