Žiče Charterhouse is a mysterious beauty which has been stirring spirits for centuries. Once between the forgotten years of 1160 and 1165, the Margrave of Styria, Count Ottokar III., who liked to visit Slovenske Konjice, ordered the construction of French Carthusians' home in the remote valley of St. John the Baptist. Since then the Žiče Charterhouse has been awakening specific energy. The respectful serenity and personalized peace rule there. It is a relaxing trip.
