Naš kraj / About Novo mesto

Grm Primary School is located in Novo mesto, which lies in the embrace of the Krka river and it is the seventh largest city in Slovenia. It is the economic and cultural centre of the Dolenjska (the Lower Carniola) region, which is surrounded by wine-growing hills on one side, where we produce our typical wine Cviček, and by the mysterious Gorjanci mountains on the other side. The Krka River flows through the Dolenjska region, creating small islands on a special rock near Novo mesto. There is the Otočec Castle on one of them – the only water castle in Slovenia. Thermal springs are also an interesting feature.
