Puchenstein Castle[edit]

Puchenstein Castle

Puchenstein Castle (Slovene: grad Pukštajn) on Pukštajn Peak (Pukštajnski vrh) dates to the 13th century. It was severely damaged in a 1706 fire. Only ruins have been preserved until today.

Puchenstein Mansion[edit]

The Baroque Puchenstein Mansion (dvorec Pukštajn) in the settlement dates to ca. 1710. Today, it is used for wedding ceremonies and as a cultural venue.[2] The chapel of the mansion has been protected as a cultural monument.[3] In Yugoslavia, it was used as barracks of the Yugoslav People's Army, and was owned by the Slovenian Ministry of Defence until 2008.
