Valvasor knew!

Is Bogenšperk the most beautiful and most well-preserved Renaissance castle in Slovenia? The famous Slovenian natural historian and polymath Janez Vajkard Valvasor knew the answer!

Why are there no longer any taverns in Slovenia? Because there is only one Bogenšperk Castle! Therefore, the Krčma tavern on the castle isn’t just a tavern but rather a pleasant trip to the castle, which rewards visitors with a great lunch too. Of course, guests are already satisfied with castle-style food at tavern prices. But it’s not coincidence that there’s such a long queue for ice-cream, that four menus have seven courses, and that you can end with a visit to the wine cellar.

As Bogensperk is so beautiful and offers so much, visitors initially come merely because of the castle itself. However, the Krčma tavern and its ambitious food satisfies the hungry while appealing the curious.

Attractive castle wine cellar


The castle courtyard is the most beautiful setting. There is ample room beneath the arches for weekend socialising, while the wine cellar can be set up for special occasions.
