Visit: Celje CastleThe Castles are a reflection of an era, however the people in different periods accepted and perceived them quite differently, just like life is getting new forms all the time.Castles and manors have, with their extraordinary past and present, always teased human imagination. Various stories interwove about the castles, above all about their inhabitants, which were later changed by the people and have been told to their descendants to this day. And due to all those stories and legends about the castles and their inhabitants that were kept by the folk tradition, we can still (magically) relive the past of the mostly castle ruins, that still daringly and proudly stand on the clifs and remind us of their former glory.Thus a lot of stories and legends about the Old Castle Celje, The Lower Castle, the Counts and the Princes of Celje and people from Teharje, were told.The stories and legends edited by Janko Orožen: Castles and Manors according to folk tradition and the documentary film Veronika and Friderik.
