Brežice, a town in eastern Slovenia in the Lower Sava Valley, near the Croatian border, prides itself on rich historical and cultural heritage. The Lower Sava Valley Museum, housed in Brežice Castle, contains archaeological and ethnological exhibits on the Croatian and Slovenian peasant revolts and a modern history collection. It is one of the largest regional museums in the country. Brežice’s main street, rimmed by well-preserved Renaissance and late-baroque facades, is a superb place to observe local life and enjoy the town’s historic vibe. Brežice is also located near to the giant Terme Čatež thermal resort, so travelling there with the family comes highly recommended.
