Dobrnica mansion – Gutenek

 

Distance: 2,3 km Normal walking time: 25 min

It was built in the 17th century as a might yet simple mansion. It then changed several owners.  In the year 1851 it was sold to the count Franc Anton Kolovrat Liebstein, who reorganised it into a brewery, one of the oldest in Slovenia. Not far away, in a rocky sheer slope, he enlarged and changed a natural limestone cave into a cooler and beer storage.
