Celje

Celje is the third largest city in Slovenia, which lies in Spodnja Savinjska valley and is only 50km away from the capital city Ljubljana. Celje is proud of its rich history with the remains of Celtic and Roman civilisations. The city has more than once played a crucial role in the history of Slovenia. In the first century in place of today’s Celje stood a Roman colony Celeia, which Romans named Troa Sekunda or the Second Troy. The archeological diggings found in celje today enrichen the city’s museum.

In the Middle Ages Celje was the residence of the mighty Counts of Celje (Cilli). From the 14th to 15th century the counts were in tight family bonds with the aristocrats and governing families from the whole Europe. Due to their achievements the Old Castle was built, which stands on Castle hill 407 metres above sea level. From there is a wonderful view over the city and its old streets, churches and city squares.

Today Celje is a modern and lively city. It is a city of culture and many tourist possibilities. Celje is also one of the important sport centres, which can present itself with many sport facilities and from the year 2008 also with one of the most modern equestrian centres in this part of Europe, Equestrian Centre Celje.
