Cekin Mansion

The Cekin Mansion is situated in the green surroundings of Tivoli Park, near Celovška road, and is thus an ideal solution for those of you who are looking for a beautiful, intimate and peaceful place to host your event. The baroque mansion was constructed in 1752 by Count Leopold Karl Lamberg. After several decades, the mansion was inherited by Ivana Lamberg. The mansion is named after her husband, Laurenz Szőgyény, whose name was Slovenized by the townspeople into Cekin. The mansion is now a cultural monument of national significance and houses the National Museum of Contemporary History.
