Geocache Description:


SLO
Grad Otocec se nahaja blizu Novega mesta na Dolenjskem. Je edini vodni grad v Sloveniji in stoji na enem od otokov reke Krke. Njegova podoba se je oblikovala skozi stoletja. Nastanek gradu sega v sredino 13. stoletja, v leto 1252. Med drugo svetovno vojno so partizani grad požgali in takrat je najbrž tudi zgorel dragoceni arhiv, v katerem se je skrivala marsikatera zanimiva zgodba iz bogate zgodovine tega prelepega gradu. Po vojni je bil grad nacionaliziran. V gradu je danes luksuzni Hotel Grad Otocec in grajska restavracija z vrhunsko kulinaricno ponudbo.

Park je oblikovan po vzorih angleškega krajinskega sloga. Najstarejša drevesa so stara dobrih sto let, vecina pa je bila posajena po obnovi gradu v petdesetih letih 20. stoletja.

Sprehodite se po prelepi okolici gradu in našli boste zaklad.
