Path through Zala

Route description

Wondering what would attract you to this forest? Definitely beautiful nature, views, animation points where you can play carefree and at the same time get to know the forest, excellent cuisine and humorous locals that take you hundreds of years into the past through re-enacted stories. 

The thematic trail mostly runs through the forest called Zala, written about by our writer Dr. Ivan Tavčar in the book In Zala (V Zali). The latter tells the story of Canon Amandus, who was attacked and badly wounded by a bear while hunting. Katarina, a girl from the nearby Mrak Farmstead then took care of him. Despite the forbidden love, a spark was ignited between them. You will learn how the plot thickens during a pleasant walk through Žirovski Vrh.
