Ormož Castle

Ormoz Castle 2014.JPG

Since 1995, Ormož Castle, first mentioned in 1278, has been a centre for contemporary cultural developments which houses the Franc Ksaver Meško Library, part of the administration of the Ormož unit of the Ptuj – Ormož Regional Museum. There is also a Castle Gallery featuring contemporary art exhibitions. Premises in the castle have also been given to the Ormož brass band.

In 2011 the award-winning renovation of the Grajska pristava (castle's outhouse) was completed, led by the Arrea Architecture bureau. It houses the Ormož Music School, a new multipurpose hall, and the ethnological and archaeological museum collections, and has turned the Ormož Castle into an outstanding cultural centre.

Planica Museum

The Planica Museum is dedicated to the history of ski jumping and flying in Planica, an alpine valley in northwestern Slovenia. Historically, this valley has been one of the prime sites for the development of ski flying as a sports discipline of its own, and consequently, the museum also presents the wider history of ski jumping as such. Nevertheless, its main focus is to present and develop both the cultural as well as the technical heritage of almost a century of ski jumping in Planica.

At the end of 2015, the Nordic Centre Planica was completed and inaugurated. It is a modern Nordic skiing complex that boasts eight newly built or renovated ski jumping and flying hills and caters to cross-country skiing and various summer activities. The three bureaus that handled the architectural dimensions of the project are: A.biro (ski jumps and bridges), STVAR Architects (service and performance buildings, pavilion) and Studio AKKA (landscape, including the lay-out of infrastructure and cross country lanes).

Set in a newly constructed pavilion as a part of the Nordic skiing complex called the Nordic Centre Planica, the Planica Museum opened its doors in 2016.
