The Negova Castle encompasses a complex of buildings representing an architectural, tourist and business whole suitable for business meetings, educational activities, events and organisation of celebrations and weddings. The complex of buildings also includes a rich herbal park. The Manor House hosts a Tourist Information Centre. Visitors may take the weight of their feet on the castle courtyard to enjoy in selected local culinary delicacies and drinks.

Negova was most probably settled already in the Stone Age and in the Bronze Age. Negova was first mentioned in 12th century as Negoinezelo, most probably after a Slavic man Negoj, who is often mentioned in the records from Middle age. There was the oldest count in the whole region and there is still a pillory to bear witness to this. The history of Negova is closely linked with the castle. The finding of the Negova bronze helmets is mysterious because one of the helmets bears a votive inscription in the writing of the Venets. It is believed that it is the language spoken 2000 years ago in the area of today’s Slovenia by the carriers of the Slovenian Hallstatt culture.
