Greenery at the confluence of the Sava and Krka, thermal springs, vineyards and rich architectural heritage – this is why Brežice is known to many as the place where different worlds come together.
Krško lies at the point where the valley of the river Sava widens into the broad Krško Plain, with the river Krka winding lazily across its southern edge. The people of these parts are proud of their past, which is revealed at every step through the area’s rich cultural and historical heritage. That the area was inhabited far back in the ancient past is shown by the oldest archaeological finds, dating back all the way to the late Stone Age. Ajdovska Jama, a cave near Nemška Vas („German Village“), is one of the oldest archaeological sites in Slovenia and offers evidence of the life and culture of Neolithic Man.
