Kasteel Jelšingrad.This castle was once regarded as one of the most beautiful castles in the province of Stajerska (Styria). The castle is first mentioned in 1424 in literature as Erlach Castle. It was owned by various historical personalities.

The most thorough reconstruction of the building happened in the 18th century. It then got its baroque appearance. The building has an L-shape and a beautiful tower is attached to the building. The building is full of authentic details. The castle has several rooms with a theme, for example: an armory room and a Moorish room with an Eastern-style ceiling. A beautiful fresco immediately catches the eye in the hall. This fresco shows a picture of the 1515 peasant revolt in Brežice. The fresco was inspired by the famous Slovenian poet Anton Aškerc, who worked as a chaplain in the area from 1883 to 1889.
