Celje Juvenile and Adult Prison
The building of a former Minorite monastery, destroyed by fire, was converted to the Austro-Hungarian prisons in 1810. At that time, the whole complex was called "the Old Pot". The present Celje Juvenile and Adult Prison was moved from the then Maribor Correctional Facility in 1964 as a special unit of the Radeče Correctional Home.
The prison building is situated between the church and the court building. The complex consists of a yard for walks and three floors with accommodation rooms for convicted persons and remand prisoners. Convicted persons in the prison are divided into four units: closed, semi-open, open and the juvenile unit. Most of the convicted persons in this prison are under the age of 26, so great emphasis is placed on education. Many of them have not completed primary school and most of them are without any vocational education. The imprisoned persons are given work at the Rinka Public Utility Institute in a metal workshop, machine shop, carpenter's workshop and laundry, and they also do household chores in the kitchen and other maintenance work needed for the operation of the prison. They occasionally work outside the prison, too. Convicted persons have various options for leisure activities, and leisure time workshops for female remand prisoners are also organised.
