Dolenjska region hides many nice places not far from the highway A2 Ljubljana-Zagreb. One of them is a romantic small city with no high buildings, located on a tiny island on lazy Krka river, not far from Otočec and some Thermal spas. The Kostanjevica Monastery (est. 1234) is very close to the town. And you can also visit Pleterje Monastery (est. 1403).
