kostanjevica_wedding_slovenia_italyKostanjevica na Krki is the smallest and one of the oldest towns in Slovenia. As a true miracle of nature (and a bit of help from the local inhabitants) the old part of the town is situated on an island. This is what its name says: it literally translates to Kostanjevica on the river Krka. The town was formed in the vicinity of the Landestrost castle, a former Spanheim border fortress at the foothills of Gorjanci. Kostanjevica na Krki was first mentioned in 1220 as the seat of the parish and gained city rights in 1252. The old town structure with two parallel streets, today named Ulica talcev (Veliki plac) and Oražnova ulica (Mali plac), remains the same until present days. The town was proclaimed a first class cultural monument and is thus under complete cultural protection. Due to frequent floods - making movement through the city possible only in boats - the town gained its nickname “the Venice of Dolenjska”. Its many cultural monuments, shows and art collections also allude to Venice.


There are two larger wood bridges intended for traffic leading to the small island that is 500 meters long and 200 meters wide. Another bridge, called the Tercialski bridge (the name suggests that older women were gathering there to gossip) was built for pedestrians. At the north side of the island there is St. Jacob’s church, which was built in the 13th century as a part of fortification system around the island in times of Kostanjevica’s greatest prosperity. At the south part - among other numerous sacral monuments - there is the valuable building of the church of St. Nicholas.


Kostanjevica na Krki is a vivid town on an island, attracting many visitors from near and far with its rich history, architecture and beauty. The majority of tourists decide to visit its cultural heritage – the Gallery of Božidar Jakac and Forma Viva in the former cistercian monastery, expositions at the Lamut’s Art Parlour and the collection of various artists in the Jože Gorjup primary school.

balon_poroka_wedding_slovenia_europaCeremony description

You and your guests will first have a reception with appetizers (and later lunch if requested) in the Kmečki hram restaurant in Kostanjevica. The newlyweds and their witnesses will get a carriage-ride to the so called Kostanjevica castle (the former monastery) where the exclusive balloon wedding will take place. In front of the castle the bride and the groom will see their pilot inflating the balloon as they arrive. The couple will be met by the zither player who will accompany them to the balloon. A toast with the local cviček wine and a photo session will take place before the takeoff. The newlyweds, their witnesses and the registrar with trustee will get into the basket and the ceremony will start after the takeoff. The couple will sign the wedding agreement and then the champagne toast follows. At the landing zither player and men with the doves will be waiting for them. Releasing of the white doves follows, symbolizing the commitment between a man and a woman to respect, support and love each other for life. When the wedding doves fly away, a new journey begins, a common new journey of the husband and wife.
