Story

Story: An inspiring friendship between a poet and a count This is another story from Šrajbarski Turn Castle. In the 19th century, the castle was owned by Anton Alexander Auersperg, a culture and art aficionado. During his teenage years, the count struck up a friendship with the great Slovenian poet France Prešeren, and made his first forays into poetry. Due to their age difference, Prešeren referred to the youth as zelen’c (“greenhorn”), jokingly alluding to his youthful inexperience. Anton Alexander Auersperg adopted this nickname, and is today known under the penname Anastasius Grün in academic circles. Together with Prešeren, he spent many a merry hour in the Auersperg wine cellar that is today the winery of Klet Krško. It’s believed that a number of the intricate verses were inspired by the intoxicating wine. As for us, we are proud that our Zeleni Silvanec bears the name of the noble Count Zelenc. More
