St. George's Church

Church of St George: A parish church was first mentioned on this site as far back as 1146 in a document by Peregrin - the Patriarch in Oglej. The first church in Konjice dates from the times before 1146, however, today we can admire the subsequent Church of St George. The late Gothic building boasts a rectangular nave of Pre-Romantic proportions, a three-side closed resbytery that is rounded out with pillars, the north nave, a church tower and a baroque rosary chapel that was added on the south side. After the last renovation in 1977 the interior of the presbytery was renovated in Gothic style.

Slovenske Konjice, in the embrace of noble stories

You have opened the door to Slovenske Konjice – a charming town with almost 1000 years of history – laid at the foot of the mysterious Konjiška gora Mountain and sunny golden wine-growing hills of Škalce in northeastern Slovenia. An attractive medieval country town with almost six thousand inhabitants, Slovenske Konjice was first mentioned in 1146 as Counowiz, and its numerous surrounding villages round out the image of the valley along the Dravinja River. With friendly locals and tidy well-kept streets, the town has become a good role model for others. It has won the Most Beautiful Excursion Destination award for many years in a row. Moreover, with two golden medals in the competition Entente Florale Europe (1998, 2014) it was placed alongside the best-kept European towns, while nearby Žiče village won the bronze medal in 1998. Charterhouse Žiče – the pearl of the cultural heritage in Slovenske Konjice municipality – also managed to place among the finalists of the European Destinations of ExcelleNce competition – EDEN 2011. In 2017 also Slovenske Konjice was proclaimed a finalist of EDEN 2017 competition, due to its focusing on cultural tourism. Furthermore, we would like to invite you to enjoy the sounds of Slovenske Konjice ...
