Old Town Centre

    Visiting the Old Town Centre of Brežice is a unique experience as it leads you down the path of past centuries and offers an insight into the life stories of the town’s ancestors whose marks are still imprinted on the old town.
    We suggest that you start your tour in the northern part of the town, at the Church of St. Rocco, built in 1764. Continue past today's Grammar School, which was once the seat of the Franciscan monastery, and past the Square of the Exiled, where you can stop and see the so-called German House, a symbol of the turn of the 20th century, when the town became one of the centres of the national fight against ethnic oppression.
    As more interesting buildings follow, you will be impressed by the National Hall, the parish Church of Sv. Lawrence and the House of the Del Cott family. If you continue toward the castle, you will see the old pharmacy and the farm buildings of the former castle (castle granary and stables) to the left of the Town Hall. Complete the walk with a visit to the mighty Brežice Castle, which is situated on the south side of the town's main street.

    Continuing less than 50 meters to the south will bring you to the old bridge over the rivers Krka and Sava. On your return to the town, the route will lead you past the famous symbol of Brežice, the 46 meter high water tower, built in 1914 for the urban water supply.
    You will constantly be accompanied by information boards describing all the city's attractions along the way.

    Architectural sketches of the Brežice Old Town Centre

    The project of the Architectural sketches of the Brežice old city centre was designed during the efforts to revive the old city center. The purpose of the project is to diversify the image of the city street. It represents the way of the reviving the abandoned urban storefronts, which for some time take on the role of presentation framework for the works of the local artists. Walk around the city represents a walk along the street gallery. For a creator Vesna Lapuh, architectural sketching presents special meditative conversation with the city, buildings and landscape. She gets aquainted with the urban architecture, constructions and art expressiveness of the buildings and other structures. Such observation and study removes the veil when looking at the creations of our ancestors and shows the way of designing the future. In the sketches only a part of the interesting building fund of Brežice is depicted. It shows the buldings and sturctures, which have through historical development and various renovations managed todecently keep the original architectural qualities.
