Climb up to the Viewpoint Above the Polhov Gradec Mansion

Go where locals go, and try goodies prepared by locals

The Polhov Gradec hill, with its hilltop church, is the most notable feature of Polhov Gradec and a hiking, botanical and historical attraction. In the 19th century a previously unknown plant was discovered on the hill, 'Blagajev volčin' (Blagaj's spurge laurel), which even a Saxony king visited. In addition, the hill is an important archeological site, which is attested to by its settlement dating back to prehistoric times.
