Tea with Count Blagay

Chat to the distinguished Count Blagaj at a castle tea party

How lovely it is to go back in time, particularly when represented by such a courteous and distinguished gentleman as Count Rihard Ursini Blagaj, and his elegant wife, Antonija. Although over two centuries have passed since they lived in the mansion house in the heart of the Polhov Gradec hils, they haven't aged a day! You will find out why, and more, at a pleasant tea party in the Polhov Gradec Mansion, which gives this place, on the doorstep of Ljubljana, a special hallmark. A time machine will take you to the 19th century, to a time when there was excitement over a high-profile botanical discovery that even led a Saxon king here; to a time when the mansion house was the centre of advanced enlightenment ideas. This is why this area is also called 'Blagaj's Land'. Spend a pleasant afternoon in high company!
