Background

The Puchenstein Castle on the Pukštajn Peak dates to the 13th century. It was severely damaged in a 1706 fire. Only ruins have been preserved until today.

In Yugoslavia, the Puchenstein Manor was used as barracks of the Yugoslav People’s Army, and was owned by the Slovenian Ministry of Defence until 2008.
