Dolenjske Toplice

Reviewed By livingdolcevita - Victoria, Canada

This is a fabulous spa facility thermal hotspring! I tried many around Zagreb but this one is worth writing about. It's nestled in a very small town of less than 1000 where this is the reason to come. It's a lovely town for strolling and having lunch or dinner and spending a day at the Hot Springs. There are several pools and a tunnel to swim to the outdoor pool. Lots of lounge chairs inside and out if you tire of the water. There is also a private nudist area. The spa is very nice, while I have only had the massage they do offer facials and some other services. There is a sauna area with 4 types of saunas, a 40 degree Japanese pool and a whirlpool. When you pay to use the sauna you get a towel and bathing suits are NOT allowed, birthday suits only. I myself keep my towel on in the dry sauna but if you go into the Japanese pool or whirlpool obviously you must be naked. When you enter the sauna area, there are lockers to leave your bathing suit or they can just be hung on the towel racks. This is a great spot for anyone, couples, families, seniors. I just discovered this in the fall and am looking forward to going there in the summer time. There is a very nice, and pricey, restaurant within walking distance once you have parked at the Hot Springs. It's called Ostarija and then driving distance there is a great family restaurant with fabulous pizza called Gostilna Kolar.

Museum of Dolenjska

Reviewed By Miha P - Maribor, Slovenia

Local museum with several buildings stands near the church in the middle of Novo mesto. You can look at Exhibitions of local history, pottery. You need to take more time for archeology. They have really excellent situlas, golden necklesses and other objects from prehistoric times (bronze age) to the antiquity. Try to listen to the guided tour. Museum has small souvenir shop. For fresh drinks you need to go to the main square.

Breg

Reviewed By pinguin89

Breg (meaning "a river bank") is a picturesque part of the old town, situated, as the name suggests, at the steep left bank of the Krka river. Obviously it's best viewed from the other (i.e. right) bank of the river. One fine spot to view and take great photos is right from the Kandija bridge (the oldest bridge in the town, kinda an extension of Glavni trg). The other one is from a boat mooring where the Nad mlini and Resslova streets branch off the Kandijska street, just a short walk down the street from the Kandija bridge.

Kandijski most

Reviewed By pinguin89

The oldest still existing bridge in the town, built in 1898. It connects Glavni trg and the Kandija district. Open to pedestrians and cyclists. Motor vehicles are also permitted at the moment, however the town's management is trying to limit motor traffic in the old town.
The best place to admire the bridge's iron construction is from the "frog's perspective" from any of the river's bank, for instance from boat moorings at the Kandijska street or at the Župančič Promenade (Župančičevo sprehajališče)

Franciskanska cerkev, samostan in stara gimnazija

Reviewed By Bratilija

Very attractive location by the river. Monastery is very old and well maintained. Friars are very helpful and kind. You can also visit the library to see some codecs from 1418 and many more. You have to try special schnapps made by Franciscan friars in Novo mesto called Franciskove kapljice – Drops of St. Francis. Very tasty and healthy. If you want to visit you have to call one day before to reserve the hour for visit. It is worth of your time for visit. You won’t regret.

WW2 bunker in Drska, Novo mesto

Reviewed By janez485 - Novo Mesto, Slovenia

German bunker in Drska area of Novo mesto was built immediately after German occupation of Novo mesto in October 1943. Germans continued to use Italian fortifications (trenches, barbed wires, small foritications) used for controlling the movement in and out of Novo mesto and in 1943 they build many fortified bunkers around city. German anti-tank Bunker in Drska measures 6m x 5,7m, the height is 3m and the walls are 85cm thick. When marshall Tito visited Novo mesto in 1952 the citizens put Škoda artillery gun from WW1 on the roof and later it was replaced by WW2 anti-aircaft gun Flak M38. In 1992 the bunker was listed as local heritage site and it is one of the starting points for "Novo mesto in wire" (Novo mesto v žici) memorial walk. It is tjhe only well preserved ww2 bunker in the region.

Glavni trg

Reviewed By Sandro C - Casorezzo, Italy

I was expecting more from Novo Mesto. Even though Sv. Miklavz is a quite interesting church - do not miss the Tintoretto - the city itself does not offer much more else. The central square is nice, with the Rotovz as most impressive building, but not more than that. Stop if you are on the way.
