This thesis deals with the cultural landscape in the area of the local community of Bizeljsko. A diverse, slightly undulated terrain with a significant cultural variety is typical for this area. The prevailing landscape patterns are the flat country adjecent to the river Sotla and stream Dramlji with meadows and fields and the area with hills where vineyards, orchards, fields, meadows and forests on its sunny sides are present. In the mentioned area has some of the best vineyard positions in the entire municipality of Brežice. Bizeljsko is part of the Bizeljsko – Sremiš
vineyard area. In the first part of this thesis the local community of Bizeljsko will be examined through natural and societal geographic characteristics. How the cultural landscape is and has been presented in promotional materials will also be determined. We examined the current state of viticulture and fruit growing and did an interview with a municipality employee from the field of farming advisory. In the second part of this thesis the cadastral municipality Orešje was the focal point. We suggested guidelines for future development in the sense that the existing, traditional cultural landscape would be preserved. The preservation of the cultural landscape
is important from the viewpoint of economy, ecology, culture and tourism. For the preservation of a recognisable cultural lanscape suitable farming activities that shape and maintain notable landscape patterns must be encouraged.
