Grad Turjak

 

Built in 1067 by Konrad von Auersperg, Turjak's imposing stronghold was repeatedly damaged and rebuilt during the 11th and 12th centuries, and suffered many later Turkish incursions. After an earthquake in 1511, the castle was rebuilt and extended. As the need for a defensive stronghold had decreased by the 17th century, Turjak was renovated to provide a more comfortable and stately home. The castle is now being restored after suffering serious damage during the WW II. Costumed re-enactments are often staged there.
