Price– Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path by hay cart €70.00

Offer

Ride on a hay cart along the Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path and nearby locations on request. The cart can accommodate up to 20 people.

During the warmer part of the year, you can experience the Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path in the most nostalgic and authentic way — by lojtrnik, a wooden horse-drawn hay carriage, or by a smaller traditional cart, once called zapravljivček (the spender). Janko likes to take the reins and takes visitors around the museum houses, once homes of some of Slovenia’s greatest masters of writing, and then stops the carriage at Anton Janša’s memorial apiary or take you to the tasting of delicious honey products.
