Hiking, themed trails, city walks

A JULIANA TRAIL that does not just conquer mountain tops or lead you in a respectful distance of the peaks along the edge of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park. It takes you where you will feel the real pulse of life in the Julian Alps and learn about the rich natural and cultural heritage of this magnificent and astonishing alpine world that abounds in biodiversity.
The starting point is before the village of Kočna (from the direction of Jesenice), where a board marks the beginning of the trail. Climb the Mežakla slopes, following the marked trail.
The “Memories of Old Jesenice Settlement” theme trail runs through the oldest part of Jesenice, called Murova. This part is also known as “Altassling” or “Old Jesenice”. Together with the Plavž and Sava settlements, it later formed what is now known as the town of Jesenice. During your walk around Murova, which extends along the slope of the Mirca hill, you will learn about the historical development of the settlement, enjoy the views and experience the pulse of the city. Tales from the locals and the photographs on the information boards will take you back in time.
