Gnidovec Retreat House is located on Mirenski Grad, which nestles in the shelter of Slovenia's Karst plateau. Despite the immediate vicinity of the town, the hill is isolated from busy roads and the everyday hustle and bustle, offering the opportunity for peaceful walks, conversation and contemplation.

Since 1970, Gnidovič Retreat House offers a wide range of activities:

  • spiritual exercises
  • meetings
  • lectures
  • courses
  • concerts
  • exhibitions ...

Conference room that accommodates up to 200 people
is available for organizing major events. Besides the large conference room, the house offers also a small discussion room and two additional rooms for smaller groups.    The Chapel of St. Vincent de Paul, with a seating capacity of 80 people, allows space for quiet contemplation in front of the Most Holy and the celebration of Mass. Next to the chapel is a smaller room for consultation and confession.   In the dining room, which can accommodate up to 100 people, groups can enjoy the delights of Grad cuisine by tasting local specialties and home-grown vegetables.    There is also a youth center with games room (billiard, table tennis, table football, darts), a small kitchen and a sociable corner, which is available for guests by prior arrangement.

The surrounding area offers plenty of peaceful places, where groups can meet together and talk. Just below the top of the hill is a recreation ground, which allows children some exploring in the nearby woods.

On the other side of the hill is a landscaped park with space for conversation. The mighty pine in the summer months provides a pleasant coolness and quiet haven, which is the prefect place to find rest and relaxation.
