On my second time to visit Celje in Slovenia I am walk to the old castle on the mountain. It has a nice history and a good looking around from there

The man at the reception is really friendly. He gave our daugter a paper crown. Inside there are two open towers holding a museum, bar and that's basically it. Gor for an hours or max two.
