Lakes and Ponds

Together with rivers, lakes and ponds in the Land of Celje offer active relaxation for everyone who likes sports fishing and picnics. But that is certainly not all there is to it, since you can go cycling or hiking, go on the lookout for animals and explore the flora and go rowing or walking on water. You never know – you might end up in paradise and even get married!

Lake Braslovško and the Vrbje Pond will reward your stroll and rest in nature with new information you can learn on forest or ecological study trails. Lake Slivniško and Lake Žovneško are great for bird-watching and photo hunting, since you can take snapshots of over a hundred different species.
Only a few minutes away from the centre of Celje is the area of Lake Šmartinsko with a protected and beautiful path leading to and around it.
The lake also offers boat, kayak and pedalo rentals, and you can take a ride on the lake in the Lake Queen.
The most magical name among ponds certainly goes to Rajski Otok (Paradise Island), which is a shelter of some endangered plant and animal species, and it is also a pleasant ambience for social gatherings and entertainment. Lisjak Pond is situated in the tranquil environment of Tabor. Surrounded with forests in the heart of nature, it is the perfect venue for weddings.
