    Transport to Hotel Evropa

    by Mikebond Updated Dec 21, 2008
    Hotel Evropa truck

    I wondered if I should put this tip in the "transport" section, but then I realized it wouldn't be useful to anyone wishing to visit Celje.
    This truck, which Nat (b1bob on VT) says to be a Model T Ford truck from the 1920s, is parked outside Hotel Evropa. I don't know what it is used for... probably not to carry tourists!

    bird-friendly bus stop

    Shapes of predator birds are often sticked on transparent surfaces to keep smaller birds away and to prevent them from crashing into the glass. However, I had always seen these stickers on the roads, never at a bus stop. Celje is really a bird-friendly town!

    Cockta

    Cockta

    Slovene pandan of Coca-Cola made by Kolinska. Only less famous worldwide.
    Actually, it does not sell well on a domestic market either - not enough of C2H6O to Slovene taste (and acquired standards)
    :-)

    tastes better than it looks, really

    Chestnuts are traditionally served with most, the first pressing of the grapes that will become wine. It`s a sweet nectar with low alcohol content but beware, it sneaks up on you. The combination is great.

    Celje Ceiling

    Go to Muzejski trg (Museum Square) and visit Stara grofija (The Old Manor House). It's a Renaissance bilding from around 1600, stands between the Square and the Savinja river. Today it houses a library and the Celje Regional Museum (Pokrajinski muzej), which is highly recommended to see. There you can find the Celje Ceiling, which represents the pinnacle of Renaissance art in Slovenia.
