View Large On Black


Otočec is a settlement on the left bank of the river Krka in the Novo Mesto municipality in southeastern Slovenia.


Otočec Castle is a castle, first mentioned in written documents in the 13th century, built on a small island in the middle of the river Krka to the east of the main settlement. The islet is linked to both banks of the river by bridges and the castle is now converted into a small hotel.
