Autumn castle cr
Snežnik Castle is the best-preserved castle building in Notranjska region. This hunting post was first mentioned in sources in 1268. The formation of the existing castle reaches back to 1462, when Schneeberg manor (dvor Sneberk) was mentioned in manuscripts. First it was owned by the Aquileian Patriarchs and later the owners changed several times. Before the war it was the property of the Saxon family Schönburg from the vicinity of Dresden.

The castle is a three-storey cubic residential building with Renaissance walls in front of the entrance and a newer stone bridge that leads to the walls. The outer towers and the two-arched stone bridge are Romantic additions of the 19th century. The castle is built on a rock at the source of the Obrh and the Brezno Spring. The spring is dammed into a large pond below the castle. The picturesque surroundings have been carefully arranged into a park with walking and riding paths. East of the castle are extensive farms and other additional buildings that house a small hunting museum.

All the original fittings in the castle, mostly from the 19th century, have been preserved. There is no castle like this in Slovenia, where one can feel the pulse of life from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Among the living quarters, the dining room, the room with "Egyptian" furniture, and a larger hall arranged into a wedding hall, stand out. The castle residents also had a small library and an improvised theatre hall. The hunting character of the post is confirmed by the numerous trophies and stuffed animals in all the halls and vestibules.
