CastleEdit

 
Osterwitz Castle (lithograph, 1830)

A hill near the settlement was the site of Ojstrica Castle (German: Osterwitz), a 13th-century castle originally belonging to the Counts of Celje. It was abandoned in the 16th century after it was attacked during a peasant revolt in 1535. By the early 17th century it was already a ruin. Today all that remains are parts of the fortifications.[3]
