It's quite far from Ljubljana, but only half an hour away from Maribor (Slovenia's second city). There's nice historic town of Ptuj nearby, and this is the part of country where majority of health resorts and thermal spas are located. Definitely place with a lot of tourist potential.

The alpine region has some very interesting castles, built in a style that often crossed borders very easily, since at the end it is a single euro-region...here a few example from italian southern side

Schloss Trosburg/ Castel Trostburg











Schloss Taufers / Castel Taufers









Schloss Tirol / Castel Tirolo







Schloss Harderburg / Castel Salorno

Schloss Enn / Castel d'Enna (I only found pictures taken from faraway, sorry for the poor view, the castle itself is pretty good!)

Castle in Kosava, Belarus

In 1944 the Kosava castle was severly damaged by a fire. Now it's under restoration.

Those majestic castles in the Alpine scenery are truly spectacular.

Good news, glad to hear that.

The castle/palace was built in 1838 in neogothic style on the instruction of local landlord, Count Wandalin Pusłowski.

Below is a graphic created in 1846 by Napoleon Orda showing palace in the background (in the foreground there's a manor at Mereczowszczyzna, where Polish & US national hero, Tadeusz Kościuszko, was born):

Original interiors was completely destroyed. I don't know how they plan to restore interiors, but I hope that it will be as close as possible to the original.

Our government adopted this year new national program "Castles of Belarus". According to this program 14 castles will be restored or conserved during 2012-2018.

I see. Maybe that's the reason why his family manor house seems to have been well maintained.

BTW, it appears he's a national hero of Lithuania as well. How do you think, what would Kościuszko himself have said about that? And in which language (Polish, Belarussian or Lithuanian)?

Also, regarding the reconstruction of Radziwiłł Castle in Niasvizh, is it true that some of the original sections of the castle were demolished and re-built in a new style (quite far from the original)?

Just, that reconstruction of castle in Ružany is just the entrance! Main castle is still to be reconstructed! Great project by Belarus!
