THE LORD OF EVENTS

The Fala Castle is one of Slovenia’s most active castles, reviving the historical stories of the Middle Ages. The castle today comprises 18 large stylistically furnished rooms, 13 chambers which used to be intended for service, a castle chapel, the castle courtyard and event space with 400 seats in the castle courtyard along with a tavern and a great hall. Fala Castle lies on a fluvial terrace with a beautiful view, enclosed by the Fala cliff to the West and age-old precipices on both sides of the river to the North-West. These precipices form a unique rock gate to the middle Drava Valley and represent a geological and climate dividing line.

The castle is today furnished in the 17th-century style, thanks to the new owner who saved it from ruin and brought to the castle several items reminding visitors of the heyday of the Fala Lords. The origin of the former Fala Castle could date back to the 15th century after the year 1407 when Oton Der Pergauer ruined the old castle, but there are no archival data on this. The first written record of the old castle, however, dates back to 1311. The structure and the land were at that time owned by a Benedictine monastery St. Paul’s Abbey from Carinthia.
