Monolit Posavje’s vineyards are beautifulnot only for the natural sights that surround them - such as endlessrolling hills, lush green forests,chequered patches of farmlandand majestic valleys - but also for the traditional village landscapesof which they are a part. Countlesssmall vineyards that are tended by hand on family estates help to keepeverything on a human scale, and also make for somephotogenic imagery. We came across this vineyard inthe hills to the west of Bistrica ob Sotli.
Cover story
Situated in the southeast corner of Slovenia, Posavje is oneof the country’s most diverse regions, and is just waiting to be explored by visitors seeking the authentic Sloveneexperience without having to jostle with busloads of tourists.However, to say that Posavje is off the proverbial beaten track would be somewhat misleading as it lies along the main roadand rail links between Ljubljana and Zagreb, making it easily accessible from either capital, both as a day trip destinationor a convenient stopover on longer travels.
Consisting of six separate municipalities - namely Radeče,Sevnica, Krško, Kostanjevica, Brežice and Bistrica ob Sotli
 from west to east - Posavje is known first and foremost as oneof Slovenia’s premier wine-growing regions, but is also blessedwith a host of natural, historical and cultural attractions.Some of the many highlights include the magical repnicewine cellars in Bizeljsko (p 19), Krško’s charming old town (p28), Sevnica’s beautifully restored castle (p 38), the cluster 
of churches atop Bistrica’s holy mountain (p 41), the Božidar 
Jakac Gallery outisde the island town of Kostanjevica (p 45),
and the traditional rafting experience found only in Radeče (p
47). While each municipality is a unique destination in its ownright, wherever you go in the region you can be assured of  finding welcoming people, tasty traditional food, excellent wineand beautiful natural surroundings to enjoy your time in.Finally, we owe a special thanks to the region’s local tourist offices and associations, as well as countless individuals,without whose help, insights and genuine hospitality thisinaugural issue of Posavje In Your Pocket simply would not havebeen possible. As always we welcome any and all feedback, beit on Facebook, Twitter or even old-fashioned email.

Arriving by Car 
Car is by far the fastest and most convenient way to reachPosavje and get to many of the locations described in thisguide - and even with petrol prices what they are, it will alsolikely be the cheapest option depending on how many peopleare in your group. In short, we highly recommend having your own car if you intend to visit the region independently rather than with an organised tour. The only downside is the fact that you won’t be able to drink (as much) wine if you are the driver.If you are headed to anywhere in eastern Posavje(ie Krško,
Brežice or Bistrica ob Sotli) from Ljubljana, it is faster to take
the new A2 motorway. However, if you’re not in a terrible hurry,taking the old 108 single carriageway, which twists and turnsalong the Sava river, is a much more scenic drive.
Arriving by Train
For those without their own cars, train is the most convenient,comfortable and frequent means of reaching Posavje fromLjubljana. While they are not fast by western Europeanstandards - it takes nearly two hours to cover the 105km
 from the capital to Brežice - they are relatively cheap, and
the ride is quite scenic as it follows the Sava river through thegreen rocky gorges of the Zasavska region. If you manage tocatch either a EuroCity or InterCity train bound for Zagreb or beyond, you can save about 30 minutes on the journey for acouple extra Euros, but only alight at Sevnica or Dobova andsometimes Krško. See www.slo-zeleznice.si for a completeschedule and prices.
Arriving by Bus
Buses are slower, less comfortable, more expensive andnowhere near as frequent as train, but unfortunately they are the only way to reach any of the towns and villagesnot located on the main Ljubljana-Zagreb railway (including Kostanjevica and Bistrica ob Sotli) by public transport. Seewww.ap-ljubljana.si (in both Slovene and English) to searchthe online schedule and find possible connections, however,beware that in our experience the accuracy of the times listedcannot be entirely trusted.
Arriving by Plane
Ljubljana’s Jože Pučnik Airport in Brnik is about an hour anda half by car to Brežice. Although Adria Airways offers the
most frequent direct connections to most major Europeancities and the Balkans, cheaper fares can often be found for connecting flights on Lufthansa, Austrian or Czech Airlines,or on Turkish Airlines if you’re flying to the Middle East or Central Asia. Another option is Zagreb’s airport, which isless than 40km away and offers a much more extensiveschedule, however you will have to spend time crossing theSchengen border to reach Slovenia. Other airports in theregion commonly used to reach Slovenia are Vienna to thenorth, and Trieste and Venice to the west. While there hasbeen talk over the years of opening up the Cerklje ob Krki
airbase just west of Brežice to civilian traffic, for actitivites
such as panoramic flights and skydiving, this is sadly unlikely to occur during the life of this guide.
