Discover Žirovnica - the heart of Slovenian culture and the cradle of Slovenian beekeeping. Embraced by meadows, forests and mountains, situated not far from the well-known towns of Bled and Radovljica, 10 rural villages await you to discover their exceptional natural and cultural heritage.
The Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path connects the birth houses of some of Slovenia’s literary giants (the greatest Slovenian poet France Prešeren, his friend the linguist and scholar Matija Čop, and the writers Fran Saleški Finžgar and Janez Jalen), as well as the apiary of the pioneer of European beekeeping, Anton Janša.
The green Završnica valley is ideal for walking and cycling; the high Karavanke mountain range invites lovers of hiking and offers views of Lake Bled and the surrounding area. The Završnica RecreationalPark offers sports, fun and picnics.
