      Count Blagaj was one of the most active figures in the Enlightenment Movement in Slovenia and a botanist who Daphne blagayana, a flowering shrub protected for over a hundred years, was named after. The excursion takes you to his home, the Polhov Gradec Mansion, where you will attend a tea party hosted by Count Blagaj and learn, among other things, the reason why in 1838 Count Blagaj was visited by King Frederick Augustus II of Saxony.
