Rich history, culture and art.
Discover Mokrice Castle.

Over centennial Gorjanci forests overlooking the wine growing Bizeljsko hills there protrudes the mighty medieval Mokrice castle. The castle legends and stories tell of agitated historical events and important travelling routes from East to West – already in the old Roman times. Not of a lesser importance were the medieval peasant riots, which also affected the castle essentially. Yet in the peaceful times, the castle was famous after an ostentatious life of its gentry. The first written documents about the castle originate from 1444, although in the Roman empire there existed already a fortress there named Romula, depicted in Tabula Peutingeriana - a map collection from 4th century.


Below the fortress there was situated the roman village of the same name of which quite some archeological excavations have been preserved. Mokrice castle is positioned on a hill on the right to Sava river. Etymologically, the name is related to the swampy area below the castle. The castle coat of arms depicts a raven with speared neck.

According to the legend, in the times of turkish intrusions, a raven with the speared neck flew above the castle and succumbing the injury fell to the castle yard and warned of the approaching danger. As a sign of the count's gratitude, the raven was granted immortality on the coat of arms of the castle.
