Celje, the historic seat of the Counts of Celje, is now the third largest city in Slovenia. Lively and interesting, friendly and actively invites you with its historic buildings, stories and trails, and modern tourist, sporting and economic offer. It is not big - but big enough that it does have something for everyone - from the abundant restaurant offer, to a wide range of sports and recreational facilities, galleries, museums and last but not least - shopping. And it's not small - but just small enough to make you feel right at home and fully accepted - Celje thereby offers diversity that can easily be placed side by side with many larger European cities, but without the inconvenience of noise and bustle of the actual metropolitan life. Therefore, it is not at all surprising that Celje is known as the "THE PEARL UPON SAVINJA".
