The pleasant small town on the banks of the River Sava is the meeting place of numerous business journeys, as well as cultural, culinary, educational and dynamic experiences.
The Municipality of Krško covers almost 300 square kilometres (180 sqm) and has roughly 26,000 inhabitants. The entire countryside around Krško is rather well suited for agricultural activities, a fact reflected in the tasty local gastronomy. The wine epiphany of the Lower Sava Valley or Posavje as we call it in Slovene, thanks to its varied and picturesque flavours as well as with our autochthonous tipple, the cviček, definitely conjures up a wonderful supplementation to the admirable gourmet achievements of the local restaurateurs. By all means, Krško and its area can rightfully be proud of the varied culinary and wine offer: there is bound to be something for any palate.
In addition to the gourmand experiences, we should not forget about the sights and points of interest to tourists, which are in a great measure marked by the colourful cultural past that seems to permeate everything: from grammarian Bohorič to Protestant translator Dalmatin, and of course polymath Valvasor and may others who enriched or in any other way left their imprint on Krško, but above all on Slovenian history and culture.
