Did you know that you have a full opportunity to relax in the Poljane Valley, regain energy, escape from everyday life and discover the secrets that the valley offers for you?

Gorenja vas - Poljane is a safe municipality with a lot of natural and cultural heritage. The valley is known for the love that Ivan Tavčar himself wrote about, for the creativity portrayed by the Šubic family and for the stunning views that you can see if you climb Blegoš or any other hill in the valley.

Following the coronavirus epidemic, the recommendations of the profession and the selection of consumers are safe and trustworthy destinations that are still unsaturated with tourism, are sustainable and have a boutique offer of both urban experiences and opportunities for outdoor activities.




We offer many different options to explore, both cultural and natural.


The Visoko manor, with its renovated façade, reigns at the entry of the Poljane Valley. In it you can see four museum collections, and at the end you can enjoy homemade cakes in Kavarna Visoko (Coffee Shop Visoko). The shade of the mighty trees once planted by the Tavčar's gardener will inevitably keep visitors in a pleasant coolness. Here they can be pampered with fragrant coffee or cakes made especially for the guests of Kavarna Visoko (Coffee Shop Visoko). This year we have developed special cocktails from local ingredients, which with their aroma take us back to the time of our ancestors.


Take a look at the once most important painting workshop in Slovenia in Šubič's house. Let the guide take you through the whole house, through the art of the painters of the Šubič family.


Rupnik Line takes you back to the time between the two world wars. Why were all the bunkers and forts built? Take a walk along the thematic trail along the Rupnik line, or have a guide take you along one of the largest preserved fortifications of the Rupnik line. This way you will answer all the questions that arose in your head and at the same time will be amazed with the majesty of the underground fortress.


The Poljane Valley is also known for its covered bridges. Will you discover everything? You can also see the birth house of the painter Anton Ažbe, a granary with a museum collection of old farm tools, take a walk through the mills we still have or see the Žirovski vrh mine with an open-air museum.
