Celje Things to Do

  • Steam Train

    Like most railway stations in Slovenia, Celje Station has an old steam engine on display. I think this is rather a nice idea.

  • Celje Castle Continued

    One of the highlights of Celje Castle were the great views from it. You can look out over the old town and across the river towards the tall mountain backdrop.

  • Celje Theatre

    The Celje Theatre is quite an interesting building with a sculpture of the Greek masks of comedy and tragedy on its facade. The theatre was constructed in 1824. In 1950 it became the Slovene People’s Theatre. It currently stages around six new productions a year. The sculpture of War and Peace is in a little park nearby.

    Outside Celje Hall there is a statue of Alma Karlin a famous Slovenian traveller and writer. She was born in Celje on the 12th of October 1889. Her father was a major in the Austro-Hungarian Army, and her mother a teacher. Alma studied in Graz, then travelled to London, where she studied languages. She was amazingly gifted at languages and learned...

  • Sculptures

    Celje had several interesting sculptures. The most famous is war and peace. One side shows war, the other side shows peace. This sculpture was created in 1956 by Jakob Savinšek. The sculpture is five metres high. I liked the sculpture of the man on a bicycle clutching a camera.

Celje Restaurants

  • Gostilna Mlakar

    Spotted this one in the "In your pocket" guide and arrived just as a large party were leaving - goos timing.It's pretty much a comfortable local pub and serves great food. Big plate of tasty cevapcici for me and another vegetable plate for Mrs B, both enjoyed immensely. Again Lasko beer to go with it as well, a good choice for our evening meal.

  • Worth finding

    A little out from the centre, just opposite a shopping centre.Anyway, a real treat here, fantastic food, just what we like, raznjici for me and a special vegetable plate for herself with ajvar and the wonderful bread only found in this part of the world. Lasko beer on offer too added to the enjoyment, also a favourite.Enjoyed our evening here.

Celje Local Customs

  • Transport to Hotel Evropa

    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!

    more
  • 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!

Celje Warnings and Dangers

  • Frozen hiking path to castle

    There is very good hiking path to the castle just a mile from the city centre, but it is not useable during the winter, because its frozen, so you can get seriously injured by falling down on frozen ground, somewhere even few meters deep...

    more
  • Frozen beauty

    Winter is not all beautiful, at least not for inhabitants of the lake.But nevertheless always manages to amaze with it's creations.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Celje Tourist Traps

  • My highschool

    It's not really a tourist trap, but it's my highschool called I. gimnazija v Celju. It's one of the oldest schools in Slovenia (1808). Sometimes it's a living torture, but I got used to it. http://www.s-prvgim.ce.edus.si/ Have I got an other choice?

  • the old man and his grapes

    There really are no `tourist` traps in Celje unless you count being `trapped` into picking some grapes. Tanja`s grandfather certainly didn`t seem to think of it that way. The old man could not wait to get out there and despite poor mobility and countless warnings to sit down, he just was dying to get his hands on the grapes and help out and this in...

    more
  • Spooky!

    You might feel intimidated and lonely since there are not many tourists in this town.I'd say it's a ghost town, but that would be bit too much ;-) Take a friend with you!

Celje Off The Beaten Path

  • The Old Aqua Tower

    The old Aqua Tower, view from the inner side of the building. Unutrašnji dio Vodenog tornja, s prostranim dvorištem, daleko je atraktivniji od vanjskog. Na procelju se isticu prekrasne drvene stepenice i isto takva vrata. Bilo bi lijepo saznati nešto o povijesti ove graðevine.

  • The Old Acqua Tower

    This is the look of the Old Acqua Tower from the front side.Pokušao sam, ali nažalost uzaludno, saznati nešto više o ovoj neobicnoj i vrlo atraktivnoj graðevini. Na prednjem dijelu, tik uz ulazni luk, nalaze se ostaci nekadašnje cesme koja je bila umomponirana i od ostataka rimskih iskopina. Zacudno je da niti jedna turisticka brošura o Celju ništa...

  • Logarska dolina - sheer Alpine...

    Put simply, the Logar Valley is a strong contender for the most beautiful spot that I've yet had the privilege to visit.One reads a great deal about the beauty of the Julian Alps around Bled - and indeed they are - but there seems to be less written (in English at least) about the Logar Valley. Perhaps because I didn't really know what to expect,...

Celje Sports & Outdoors

  • Football

    The Arena Petrol is currently - to my knowledge - the national stadium but I believe this may change as the one in Ljubljana is undergoing a facelift.Great ground with a large cineplex and bars/diners adjacentBeer and burgers on sale inside the ground - believe the beer is only 2% though !

    more
  • Sheet of ice for skating

    There's a hall meant for ice skating and it's not that crowded. Unfortunately it's open only few hours per week - during winters only. Ice skates (they are availible at the checking, too)

  • Church and home of St Joseph

    Like the castle this building dominates the town of Celje from its hilltop location. We got near it on our walk down from the castle, but did not have time to visit.
