Top spot!

The castle area is one of my favourites for chilling or visiting the museums. There's amazing park where you can sit (in the middle of the centre of Ribnica) and hear the birds. There are 2 museums which have the historical meaning for the town. Museum of Bloody Fight against Witchcraft is interesting because of all the things which were used against "the witches" and you have to know that was one of the last trials against witchcraft held in Ribnica. Ribnica is also known about its wooden products which helped people in the past to survive. In one part of the castle is also hall for weddings.

I drive true Ribnica a lot but this was the first time i stoped and walk around a bit.. it was worth it. It is tucked beheind the towns curch (something special to). You cross a old bridge over the river and you are allready by the castel gates. Beheind the walls is a beautiful garden and museum.

Better outside and in the park

Museum is little strange. You can visit just two towers. One has small collection of wooden products and some pottery. Second collection is devoted to witches. It needs to have some fresh figures and decorations. Outside you can see many sculptures of more or less important people from Ribnica. Very romantic is entrance to the area, when you pass an old stone bridge. Good for short visit. Later, proceed to Rokodelski center (Handicraft center), some 200 m away. It has better collection of wooden products (suha roba) and big souvenir shop. You can find closed door of the museum in winter.

The castle is quite small, although there is a small museum inside the castle which highlights the local traditional crafts/history some of the permanent exhibitions include "Woodenware and Pottery, Ribnica - The Greatness of being small and The Bloody Fight Against Witchcraft".

Witch hunts and their subsequent torture seems to have played and large part of times gone by.

The castle is small and has a small garden area. There was a wedding taking place at the time of our visit.

Again there is a small entrance fee (Approx €2.50). For this you also got a small wooden spoon. To represent the local tradition in woodenware manufacture etc.

Again all the staff were very friendly and extremely proud of their town and heritage.
