Price– Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path by hay cart €70.00
€70.00

Offer

Ride on a hay cart along the Žirovnica Cultural Heritage Path and nearby locations on request. The cart is for 20 people.

During the warmer part of the year, you can experience 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). Uncle Janez likes to take the reins and drive around museum houses, once homes of the greatest Slovenian masters of writing, and then stops the carriage at Janša’s apiary to take you to the tasting of delicious honey products.
