Šempeter

Šempeter in the Savinja Valley is situated along the Celje-Ljubljana highway. Its important position in the history has given the town a remarkable historical and cultural stamp, and the town also boasts lots of natural beauties and distinctive features.
In a beautiful park in the centre of Šempeter, visitors can see the most beautiful Roman vaults in Slovenia, and the most significant sight of St. Peter’s Church in Šempeter is definitely the statue of the Madonna with child from 1320.
The Pekel Cave is the greatest jewel of the Styrian karst region. Its beauty and preservation make it comparable to many tourist caves in Europe, and its depths are hiding the highest underground waterfall in Slovenia. Nearby, there is a forest and geological study trail arranged with information boards and it leads through the surrounding mixed forests past meadows, which cover the area around the Pekel Cave.
The Lower Savinja Valley has 18 different cycling routes with various difficulty levels, some passing planes and others ascending to the mountainous region. Circular routes are well-marked and well-kept.
Vrbje Pond with an eco-study trail is a pleasant spot for bike excursions, relaxing walks or a break in the intact nature, while Nivo Bio Park is a pleasant and tidy park with many energy points that will fill your body with energy.
