Residents of Posavje region considered a great honor to have a future first lady roots right here, where many living memories about her childhood and adolescence are still alive. Many  memories are  in Sevnica, where she attended elementary school and where she  lived with her parents. Her mother Amalia (born Ulčnik) was originaly from village Raka, where she got married with Viktor Knavs in the Church of St. Lovrenc.  Melania, who was born in 1970 in Novo Mesto, was baptized in this same church and spend her vacation with grandparents in Raka.

We are known for the unusual sand caves  that are so special and you will definitely be impressed by them . They are called ‘repnica’ – more than two hundred years old caves  dug into quartz sand, where sometimes during the winter people use to store vegetables. Most repnicas today due to the ideal temperature and humidity are great storage for wine and place for wine tasting. In our villages you can visit more than 200 years old repnicas, providing a truly unique experience. Some of them have unusually interesting ornaments on the ceiling or on the walls, some are small, others are large.
For a really authentic experience you can spend the night in the middle of the vineyard  in cottages, which are suitable for families or small groups.
