A city of special crafts and activities

Tanners from Šoštanj needed light to work, the same light adorned the picturesque villas around the city square. Today, illumination is provided by Šoštanj thermal power plant. You can see the special attractions of the square that developed alongside the large tannery, today housing the Museum of Tannery in Slovenia, by taking guided tours of the city, which is inseparably connected with the countryside. You can visit Kavčnik Homestead, Bahor Pottery workshop and other places of natural and cultural heritage.

Šoštanj from above and at ground level

The first plane landed in Šoštanj in 1927. Today, a sport airport is located in nearby Lajše, from where you can fly to panoramic views of Šaleška Valley. Whatever you see from the sky, can also be visited at ground level by travelling its hiking and cycling trails. Afterwards, you can relax by the sea, which is also attractive from a fishing perspective, or at nearby Terme Topolšica Spa.
