Explore amazing Kamnik

Kamnik is one of the cutest, nicest and beautiful small towns in Slovenia. With old architecture from the medieval days, red-orange roofs, small churches and ruins of mighty castles, it is well worth visiting. Medieval charm, stunning nature and authentic antique charm, combined with white mountain`s tops in the background, delicious local cuisine and friendly locals make this a must visit location.


Due to its smallness and not many sightseeing opportunities, Kamnik represents a great half day trip, which you can prolong into a whole day visit by adding Arboretum Volčji Potok to your list of visits or into a two day trip, if you decide to visit Velika Planina or if you want to relax in one of the best spas in Slovenia, in Terme Snovik.


When you visit Kamnik take time for a short walk through the well preserved streets with medieval architecture and antique charm. Climb up a short hills in the city and enjoy the amazing views.

Start your day in Kamnik with visiting Mali Grad Castle, small chapel which is located on a small hill at the beginning of the city. Walk to the top of the hill and enjoy in the beautiful views of Kamnik and its surrounding.


Not far from the Mali Grad Castle is another short hill with the church of Mary and Joseph’s engagement. Church itself is worth visiting because of the beautiful interior.


On the other side of the town Kamnik, about 10 minute walk from the church, lies the amazing Church of St. Jacob with famous library and chapel made by one of the most important Slovenian architects Jože Plečnik. This is one of the most important religious buildings in Slovenia and its library was once pride and joy of Slovenian`s priests.


A part from those sights Kamnik has some other sights and it does offer some other interesting activities. You will find a number of small museums and monuments, restaurants with local cuisine and nice parks with opportunities for a short relaxing rest. Do not be afraid to wander around the town without a map.


If you are a nature lover, Kamnik and its surrounding offers even more interesting activities. One afternoon is just enough time to visit the most famous botanical garden in Slovenia, the Arboretum Volčji Potok.


Kamnik and its surrounding offer great ideas for weekend getaways. One of the best options for longer stay is the amazing nature of Velika Planina, where you can spend a few nights in the company of cows, local cheese products and solitary farms or at the endless ski slopes.
