First mentioned in 1444, the Mokrice Castle stands on slightly elevated ground on the hillsides of Gorjanci where they descend into the Sava Valley, close to the border with Croatia near the Jesenice settlement. Its name derives from the former swamp in its surroundings (mokrišče in Slovenian).
Today it houses the four-star hotel resort Golf Hotel Mokrice Castle managed by Terme Čatež d. d., Slovenia’s largest health resort operator. It is surrounded by a 200-year-old English park with a pond, a Chapel of St Anna, a dairy farm, and a 18-hole golf course. The castle and its surrounding have been declared a cultural monument.
