The Renaissance Fužine Castle, in the past also named Kaltenbrunn, is named after fužine ("ironworks"), which were located together with other industrial objects (forge, paper mill) nearby the castle at the crossing over the Ljubljanica River. It was erected between 1528 and 1557 by architects Črt and Janez Weilheimer for owners from the Khisl family. Today it houses the Museum of Architecture and Design.

Rajhenburg Castle

The Rajhenburg Castle dates back in the 9th century but the current construction derives from the 16th century. The castle that is called also Brestanica Castle is owned by the Municipality of Krško and was recently completely renovated with the support from the European Union's Cohesion Fund. Despite its rather sinister misuse during and after World War II it now features several museum collections, contemporary art exhibitions, a wedding hall, a museum shop, a restaurant and a café. It is managed by the Krško Culture House that runs a variety of cultural programmes.

As the Rajhenburg Castle was also a home to the only Trappist Monastery in the Slovenia, their rich legacy became an inspiration for the current exhibitions. The permanent exhibition on the Rajhenburg Trappists was prepared by the Brestanica Unit of the National Museum of Contemporary History already in the 1990s and was re-staged in 2013.
