Tuhelj is located at the foot of the Cesargrad mountain. Throughout its past, Tuhelj was a prominent historical, ecclesiastical, political and cultural centre. It is therefore not surprising that it is here that the parish church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was built, categorized as cultural monument of the highest category, far-famed for its magnificence and cultural and historical significance. Today it is a true beauty among the traditional Tuhelj houses in the mesmerizing Zagorje surroundings. The spa center Terme Tuhelj is another great attraction of the town. The spa has a thermal water and healing mud spring and is surrounded by green nature and hills.
