Ruševec - Family Vacation Pohorje


Ruško the Balck Grouse Travels

Ruško the Black Grouse likes to walk around and visit interesting places. Often you won’t find him at home because he and his friends will be wandering around Pohorje. They like to visit new places where they learn about history sights or admire cultural features. Here are some tips for one-day family trips: 

  • Take the “Pohorska vzpenjača” circuit cable railway to get to the valley. Then take the bus to the centre of Maribor ‒ the magnificent capital of the Štajerska region. You can visit the city park that hides three lakes and go up the nearby hill called Kalvarija. You can visit Aquarium-Terrarium, take Jurček - a little train that takes you for an hour ride around the city. You can walk along the Drava river and say hello to the ducks living there. Maybe you will find some time also for the Bumber park where there is countless playground equipment.
  • Visit Slovenske Konjice, the town of wine and flowers, only 45 km from Ruševec direction Celje/Ljubljana. From A1 highway (direction Ljubljana) take the exit Tepanje and follow the signposts Slovenske Konjice (3 km). There is Mini Zoo Land Polegek where you can see a kangaroo, a crocodile, a parrot, iguanas, horses, guinea pigs, goats, rabbits, sheep … walk through the Tropic Park, the Australian Land, the Farmyard, the Wild West and the Mexican Hacienda. There are beautiful hills covered with vineyards that embrace Slovenske Konjice ‒ and offer magnificent scene for one of the most attractive golf courts in Slovenia. If you stop by the Ranch Dravinja, you will enjoy the company of horses and cowboys. There is also the Žiče Carthusian Monastery only 12 km from Slovenske Konjice where you can enjoy peace and quietness of the ancient monastery atmosphere.
  • Visiting Ptuj (40 km, direction Zagreb) - the oldest town in Slovenia, called Petovia in Roman times ‒ is a must. There is a castle and a very nice town centre. Beside the town’s very rich cultural heritage you can enjoy in Thermal Park, one of the largest pool complex in Slovenia.

The Villa Ruševec is situated in a very quiet, full-of-hills location of Pohorje. We recommend it to all who are seeking to be in touch with wonderful nature.


The surrounding of the Villa Ruševec is wonderful and the Villa is clean and nice. We were very satisfied with the additional offers. A ski centre is only 2 km away and after skiing the Ruševec is a perfect peaceful shelter.


Thank you for a wonderful family relaxation in your apartment. I recommend the Villa Ruševec to all. My children enjoyed it very much. Ruško the Black Grouse rules.
