Metlika is located in southeastern part of Slovenia and it is totally off the beaten path so no tour busses or "local" souvenirs that are made in China, but at the museum you can buy Pirhi (colored eggs). When you visit Metlika you should visit Belokranjski Muzej. Museum is located in old castle in the old part of the town. We started our tour with a movie presentation of Bela Krajina (about 20 minutes, in English). We spent about 40 minutes in the museum. This part of the exhibit focuses on the history of the area and on the ground floor of the museum there is also an exhibit abut the wine production. Also, just outside the castle is a firefighters museum with impressive collection of old fire engines/fire pumps. We were told that Metlika was the first town in Slovenia to have a fire brigade.
