Hrastovlje Tours

1 review
Despite its relatively small size, Hrastovlje is home to two of Slovenia’s most-unique features. The karst spring of the Rizana River, which flows through this quiet destination, is the only major spring in the entire country. And while this quiet body of water draws visitors because of its beauty, the Holy Trinity Church is Hrastovlje’s main attraction.

This impressive stone structure was built before 1500 and contains a world-famous Danse Macabre fresco that is truly impressive to see. Extensive restoration of the plaster walls and interior murals took place in the 1940s, and today, travelers can check out the church’s nave, where scenes from the Book of Genesis, saints, and the famous “Dance of Death” sequence line the walls. The church, which is located on a hillside just above town, also offers beautiful views of Hrastovlje and the Slovanian countryside.
