Opis

Vuzenica is one of the oldest settlements in the valley, and was first mentioned in 1238. The same record also mentions the castle and the church. The original settlement Stari trg was built around the church of St. Nicholas, and later Kolon II of Vuzenica had Novi trg built at the foot of the castle hill. Markht Saeldenhofen had special privileges and it was only in 1850 that the neighbouring rural municipalities were joined with it. Landowners and the ruling states changed, but the cultural heritage was preserved throughout and is so abundant, that it can be compared to far larger and richer places. There is no doubt that the most exquisite are the sacral art monuments – the churches, the chapels and the wayside shrines, without which the artistic heritage would not be so outstanding. It was not a coincidence that Anton Martin Slomšek (1800-1862), the Levantine bishop, writer and patriot, was posted in Vuzenica in the 19th century. The historical landmark of Vuzenica is its castle, which is currently in ruins. Its construction began in the period 1220-1235. The castle greatly contributed to the development of the place, its owners being noblemen. The last owner of the castle was the painter Oskar von Pistor. Some of his wonderful oil paintings depicting Vuzenica are preserved.
