Step into the Middle Ages at Zuzemberk

7/10/2014


If you're following me on Instagram (@siennaana), then you already know I spent 4 days in Slovenia last week again. Bloggers and journalists were invited once again by G&S Promotion to come to Slovenia, and experience what this beautiful country has to offer, but this time different regions - Dolenjske Toplice and Bela Krajina. I will divide this trip into several posts, so definitely keep up with my blog to see everything we experienced. In this first post I will tell you a bit about Zuzemberk and the castle in Zuzemberk, which really makes you feel like you stepped into the Middle Ages.

Ako me pratite na Instagramu (@siennaana), onda znate da sam prošli tjedan ponovno provela 4 dana u Sloveniji. Blogeri i novinari su opet bili pozvani od G&S Promocije da dođu u Sloveniju, i iskuse što ova lijepa zemlja ima za ponuditi, no ovaj put je bila riječ o drugim regijama - Dolenjskim Toplicama i Beloj Krajini. Podijelit ću ovo putovanje u nekoliko postova, tako da nastavite biti u toku sa mojim blogom da vidite sve što smo iskusili. U ovom prvom postu ću vam malo pričati o Žužemberku, i dvorcu u Žužemberku, u kojem se stvarno osjećate kao da ste zakoračili u srednji vijek.


Zuzemberk is in the Slovenian region Suha Krajina, and it offers the perfect escape from the everyday stress. If you visit this little town, you can try fishing, rowing, cycling, or you can take long walks in the beautiful countryside. Zuzemberk is the ideal place to unwind, but also the ideal place if you're interested in history. If you're in Slovenia right now, or near Slovenia, and you're interested in the Middle Ages, it might be the right time to visit Zuzemberk. The people from Zuzmberk are very devoted to keeping their tradition alive, so they organize this special event once a year, inspired by the medieval times. If you come to this event, you will see people dressed in medieval costumes, you can play medieval games, learn medieval dances, learn about their history, etc. We got to experience some of these things while we were there too, and I have to say, I totally kicked ass at medieval flipper! :) This event, called ''The Medieval Days'', is held from July 12 to July 15 this year, so if you're close, definitely come and check it out.

Žužemberk je u slovenskoj regiji Suha Krajina, i nudi savršen bijeg od svakodnevnog stresa. Ako posjetite ovaj mali grad, možete probati pecanje, veslanje, bicikliranje, ili možete jednostavno šetati i uživati u lijepom krajoliku. Žužemberk je idealno mjesto za opuštanje, ali također i savršeno mjesto ako vas zanima povijest. Ako ste sada u Sloveniji, ili blizu Slovenije, i zanima vas srednji vijek, možda je pravo vrijeme za posjetiti Žužemberk. Ljudi iz Žužemberka su jako posvećeni održavanju svoje tradicije živom, pa tako jednom godišnje organiziraju posebni događaj inspiriran srednjim vijekom. Ako dođete na ovaj događaj, vidjet ćete ljude odjevene u srednjovjekovne kostime, možete igrati srednjovjekovne igre, naučiti srednjovjekovne plesove, naučiti ponešto o njihovoj povijesti, itd. Mi smo također iskusili neke od ovih stvari dok smo bili tamo, i moram reći da sam razvalila u srednjovjekovnom flipperu! :) Ovaj događaj se zove ''Srednjovjekovni dani'' ili ''Viteški dani'', i održava se od 12. do 15. srpnja ove godine, pa svakako svratite ako ste blizu.

On the other hand, if you're into something modern, Zuzemberk also has something to offer. A large group of young architects from all over the world spent the Summer last year in Zuzemberk and while they were there, they built interesting sculptures and pavilions all over Zuzemberk. My favorite is this modern, spacious tree house on three levels. I absolutely loved it!
More interesting posts from Slovenia are coming soon, so stay tuned :)

S druge strane, ako ste više zainteresirani za nešto moderno, Žužemberk također ima nešto za ponuditi. Velika grupa mladih arhitekata iz cijeloga svijeta je provela ljeto prošle godine u Žužemberku i dok su bili tamo, sagradili su zanimljive skulpture i paviljone po Žužemberku. Moj favorit je ova moderna, prostrana kućica na drvetu. Jako mi se svidjela!
Uskoro stiže još zanimljivih postova iz Slovenije, tako da nastavite pratiti moj blog :)
