Podčetrtek

Podčetrtek

This settlement with a spread out market centre is situated in a narrow valley along the border of the Sotla River.

It is the centre of the municipality of Podčetrtek and the Srednje Sotelska Region. Podčetrtek obtained its market rights in the 15th century. Since then, Thursdays have been court and market days, thus giving the settlement its Slovenian name (Podčetrtek = Under Thursday).
On a small hill above the village is the Podčetrtek Castle, which was first mentioned in archives in the 12th century. The castle received its current appearance in the 18th century when it was renovated by the Counts of Attems, who owned it until the end of the World War II.
Near the castle is a forest reserve of linden and black beech trees.
Below the castle hill near the stream is the parish Church of St. Laurence, and on the hill rising above the Podčetrtek – Olimia Road, there is the Church of the Virgin Mary on Sand.
Terme Olimia Spa Resort is located in the direct vicinity of the centre of Podčetrtek.
