Trip to Devil's Rock

The legend of the devil’s rock dates back to the 11th century of today’s reckoning, when at a place between the Savinja and Dreta rivers, a farmer ordered the devil to throw a rock at that place. The Devil’s Rock, as it is still called today, was never approached by the Devil again. And as tradition says, the devil and evil shun anyone who touches it.

In the place where the devil threw the rock, the lords of the castle built the Vrbovec castle in the 12th century, which still stands today and is considered one of the most beautifully preserved castles in Slovenia. However, many stories and narratives have also been preserved. Everything from the secret tunnels between the Vrbovec castle, the mint by the river Dreta and the hidden treasure of Konrad I.

The story of the Devil's Rock

Near Savinja, a poor little farmer Bogo once lived in poverty. A cow was all he had. He also helped himself by fishing in Savinja, which was forbidden. And one day, while poaching, the servants of the lords of the castle notice him, and the farmer in distress says aloud: “Devil himself, help me so that I can live better!” And at that moment, the devil appears to him and promises the farmer carefree fishing and three years of prosperity in exchange for his soul when these three years are over. The farmer agrees to this, and his life immediately ends. The farmer was doing better day by day, he even bought a new cow. However, after two and a half years, the farmer remembers that all good things will come to an infernal end. So he comes up with an idea and summons the devil again and asks him for one last favor. The devil agrees in exchange for taking the farmer’s soul before morning. The farmer agrees and asks the devil to bring him a huge rock from Čreta to build a house on. However, when the devil wants to bring it to the farmer, the rock was too heavy. The night has already turned into day, and in that moment the farmer rings the church bell. Thinking that it was already morning, the devil threw the rock right between the river Savnia and Dreta, where it stands to this day. From that moment on, the devil avoids the rock and everyone who touches it.
