Zasavska Sveta gora (Holy Mountain of Zasavje)
Zasavska Sveta gora (852 m) is a hill offering gorgeous views. It is located on the left bank of the Sava river, between Zagorje ob Savi and Litija. On Sveta gora, there is also a mountain hut Planinski dom na Zasavski gori as well as a Church of Mary’s Birth which is located at the hill’s rocky summit. Even before the church was built, there was supposedly a pagan temple at the location. At the end of the 15th century, the church was surrounded by a wall with a camp and protected by a defensive tower that today serves as an independent bell tower. The current church was built in 1753.
