From sup to the iron age…all in one weekend!


The third event of the project took place in Novo mesto. 30 participants got to know cuisine through the local offer, which they were very enthusiastic about, because the locally produced ingredients on the plate are no longer so self-evident.

They visited the Franciscan monastery, with the oldest library in Novo mesto. Father Krizostom Komar presented their work through history to this day in a very humorous and interesting way. Novo mesto has amazing panorama view from river Krka, therefore guests rode canoes, sups – stan up paddle board and also took a swim in refreshing green river Krka. Novo mesto Cathedral or St. Nicholas's Cathedral impressed with unusual shape, broken longitudinal axis and oil painting by Venetian painter Tintoretto, which is one of the biggest art works in Slovenia. Interesting history of this church and building process vively described attracted all guests, who were impressed by amazing church in Gothic style.

At the end of the day, guests visited Museum of Dolenjska, where is archaeological material from the Early Iron Age, which can be counted among the most important specimens of cultural heritage on the European scale. We finished the day with the celebration of situla – the 4th festival of Iron age living and cookery. Interesting programme had a market – display of ancient crafts and products, food court with the touch of iron age culinary and beverages, trialability, shooting with a crossbow, stage performance with music and dancing and so on.

Novo mesto gave an excellent impression and, with its tourist offer, certainly impressed guests.
