A touch of another time

The Strmol castle lies at the edge of the Dvorjanski hrib (Hill), near Cerklje na Gorenjskem. In the 13th century, it was home to the Strmol Knights who gave the name to the fort which was kept although the fort itself often changed owners.



Throughout the turbulent centuries, the Strmol Castle preserved its original form and is, therefore, one of the oldest and best-preserved castles in Slovenia – here you will find the original furnishings of the last private castle owners, Rado and Ksenija Hribar.


A castle of countless stories

The Hribar’s enjoyed the best period of their life together at Strmol Castle where they furnished their home with a cosmopolitan touch, filling it with a rich collection of works of art and collectibles of exceptional value.



It was here where they created a place for socializing and gathering of the Slovenian and European aristocracy of that time. Their story was also described in the novel by Drago Jančar “I Saw Her That Night” which received many awards.
