Opis

Borovnica is only an 18-minute train ride from Ljubljana (in the direction of Postojna), a half an hour drive if you pass Podpeč, and a little more if you take the Ljubljana-Vrhnika road, and go past the Bistra castle, which houses the Technical Museum of Slovenia. Borovnica is a nucleated village at the south-eastern end of Ljubljansko barje (the Ljubljana Marshes), whose characteristic image is partly also formed by its wood processing industry. The village, which numbers 2,000 inhabitants, is the centre of the municipality with a total population of around 4,000 people. In the centre of the settlement, there are the remains of a column which helped support the 500-metre-long railway viaduct, one of the greatest technical achievements of the 19th century, which bridged a wide valley. The nearby Dolinski most (a bridge) is also a reminder of the building expertise of those days. At present, the railway is located much lower in the valley.

An hour´s walk from Borovnica, there is the romantic gorge Pekel, which was carved out by the Otavščica stream. There is a path which leads past the cascades, the wooden footbridges and steps, but less demanding walks are also possible. Forest nature trails are perfect for mountain biking. Above Borovnica and the village of Zabočevo, you will find the launching area for hang-gliders and paragliders. In Pekel, rare animals can be seen, and above the valley, behind Brezovica near Borovnica, below Strmec, high up in the rocky area it is possible to see chamois. Pako, Breg, Dražica, Zabočevo, Niževec, Brezovica, Ohonica, Pristava, Lašče, Laze and Dol are also interesting for visitors. The Borovnica valley is also the starting point for long walks in the kingdom of the Notranjska forests. Borovnica also has good food and shops.
