When coming to Brežice from the direction of Ljubljana–Zagreb motorway, from the direction of Terme Čatež or from elsewhere, from the south to the north of Brežice, you cannot miss the greatest beauty of Brežice, the confluence of the Krka and Sava Rivers.
An idyllic view of the confluence opens from the bridge connecting the village of Čatež na Savi and Brežice. The popular spot, the so-called “Špica”, attracts nature lovers and photographs as well as every random visitor of Brežice. The bridge also offers a unique view of the bridge over the Krka and Sava Rivers.
Historical facts: The Brežice Basin with the Sava and Krka Rivers is the most important hydrographic area in Slovenia.
The rivers have always been an important part in the lives of the locals. Fishing and trading was the sole source of income of many families. There were shipyards, towrope knitting facilities and ports along the rivers. Consequently, inns and guesthouses started to develop in order to meet the needs of raftsmen. Water was also the only transport route for floating and rafting timber until the first railway line was set up in the area.
Providers at the attraction: Budič Inn, Adams Suites, Les Inn
