The centre of the southern wine country

Metlika was officially recognised as a town back in the 15th century, a century after the area and river Kolpa became important as the Carniolan/Croation border. Culturally Metlika seems like something of a mix, traditions of agriculture and crafts with an injection of modern music in terms of the arts.
