Vurbek Castle and Church of St Mary (Bled-Slovenia)

The Vurbek castle is located on the south edge of the Slovenian hills. The castle and its builder Wigand were first mentioned in writing in the first half of the 13th century. Today, the castle serves as the scene for various events and cultural manifestations, because of its amphitheater-like yard. The church of St. Mary is located near the castle Vurbek. The church is adorned by many medallions, portraits, and old tombstones. Energetic points have been found near the castle and are frequently visited by medical tourists. The castle is owned by the counts of Hollenburg or the masters of Vurbek, from whom the town got its name and emblem. In the past, the castle served for exhibitions of various weapons, antique furniture, torture devices, and art pieces. The church of St. Mary is located near the remains of castle Vurbek. The history of the church is tied to the castle and its owners who maintained the church, such as the counts Stubenberg, Gallenstein, Attem, Wechslerjev, and Herberstein. The church of St. Mary served as a church until 1785, when it became a parish. It was used for religious purposes by counts and other people tied to the castle. The first church that stood at this place was first mentioned in 1336. Because of pilgrimages between 1773 and 1776, Ivan Fuchs built the today’s church and dedicated it to the Assumption of Virgin Mary. The main pilgrimage was held on the same date as today, which is the 15th of August.
