The Sv. Janez Krstnik Valley with its mighty Žiče Carthusian Monastery offers a mysterious serenity that allows visitors a retreat from civilization.
The Žiče Carthusian Monastery from 1165 is a unique monument to the history of the life of monks. The monastery of brothers closed in the 18th century, but the monks’ houses, dining room, kitchen, and church remained.
Through the centuries, Gastuž, the oldest hostel in Central Europe, welcomed travellers who were not allowed to enter the monastery into its safe shelter. You are invited to enter the renovated building, which offers a bar on the ground floor and a restaurant on the floor above.
At the Viva Sana herb shop, which continues the tradition of one of Europe’s oldest pharmacies, you can purchase various herbal preparations.
The Sv. Janez Valley, where time flows differently, is a home of omnipotence, reverence, peace, and quiet that must be experienced.
