    Grad Jablje (the Castle Jablje), first mentioned as a property in 1268. It got its today’s renaissance appearance in 1530. The castle was later renovated many times. After having been left to fall in ruins for many years it was greatly renovated in 2006 and served as the main protocol object during the Slovenia’s European Union presidency in 2008.

    The greatest speciality of this luxurious castle are the wallpapers of a renowned Baroque painter Franc Jelovšek in the castle’s dining hall, depicting a somewhat peculiar Chinese with a tambourine riding a camel.
