Small village of Olimje is situated in the East of Slovenia, by the Croatian border. In the centre of the village you will find a monastery from the 13th century and a church, with a gold and black baroque altar (17th – 18th century). In the castle tower, visitors will find a pharmacy, enriched with frescos, which is one of the oldest preserved monastic pharmacies in Europe. Today the monastery is inhabited by the Minorite Brothers.
