Slovenian Cultural Holiday-Hike along the Žirovnica Path of Cultural Heritage


8th February

Vrba in Žirovnica is the birthplace of the greatest Slovenian poet, France Prešeren, so its cultural beat is the greatest on February 8th, the day of the national cultural holiday dedicated to France Prešeren. This is the day when all the villages in Žirovnica come to life. Beekeepers offer you a taste of honey in front of Anton Janša's Memorial Apiary, a traditional lojtrnik– a wooden horse-drawn carriage, takes you on a fun ride along the Imperial road, and the doors of Finžgar's, Jalen's, Čop's, and of course Prešeren's birth houses, are widely open, inviting you to discover their secrets. Prešeren's day is also full of green energy, which takes you on an organized hike along the Žirovnica Path of Cultural Heritage. Of course, the most diverse happening is in front of the birth house of France Prešeren in Vrba, where a central ceremony takes place with musical performances, poetry recitations and goodies from local providers.
