History & culture
The first written references to these parts in the early Middle Ages do not appear until the end of the 10th century, when the Zreče area was divided among several ecclesiastical and temporal lords. The most important castle was Freudenberg, which stood on a hill below Brinjeva Gora and first appears in historical sources in 1224.
At an altitude of 1,517 metres, the world is white like a fairytale. Especially on winter days, when the plains rest under a thick fluffy blanket of snow and the mighty spruces of Pohorje are bending under their carpet of snow.
