BISTRICA OB SOTLI Sacred Mountains

Svete gore – ‘Sacred Mountains’ – five sanctuaries on a single ridge

From the top of  the 527-m high hill, called Svete gore, you see as far as Croatian Zagorje, past the hills of Donačka gora and Boč all the way to the Pohorje range. But it is not so much about the panorama, because the visitors clearly love the fact that there is a succession of five sanctuaries on a single ridge, from the top to the bottom: Lourdes chapel, Saints Sebastian and Fabian chapel, St. Mary’s Church dedicated to her birth, and St. George’s and St. Martin’s chapels.
