Novo Mesto is the city on a bend of the Krka River in the City Municipality of Novo Mesto in southeastern Slovenia, close to the border with Croatia. Change things up with these side-trips from Novo Mesto: Chateau de Zuzemberk (in Žužemberk), Land of Hayracks (in Šentrupert) and Šentjernej (Pleterje Charterhouse Monastery & Pleterje Open-Air Museum). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Otočec Castle Park, tee off at Golf Grad Otocec, examine the collection at Museum of Dolenjska, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Franciscan Monastery Novo mesto.

To see maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Novo Mesto day trip planning site.
