A fun ride in a local cart – lojtrnik, to the beekepers
ŽIROVNICA– COUNTRYSIDE– RIDE WITH LOJTRNIK (LADDER CART)– BEEKEPER VISIT
Departure:
anytime (from spring to late autumn)

Guide:
    


Lojtrnik ride and a wrapped cloth as a backpack on your back to visit a beekeper and birthplace of a famous Slovenian.

We kindly invite you to the cradel of Slovenian beekeping and culture – Žirovnica. Actually we will visit some of the small villages under the highest peak of the Karavanke mountains – Stol, which are joined together under the municipality of Žirovnica. You will be welcomed in a quiet countryside enviroment, take you around this colourful landscape and present you with Slovenian rich cultural heritage. We will sneak a peak into the world of the famous Carniolan bee and we will taste some bee products.

Bus will depart at 7.00 am, from the main station in Nova Gorica, heading in the direction of Carniola. We will start our sightseeing at the birthplace of a Slovene linguist and literary historian Matija Čop, where you will be served with home made bread and honey. We will show you around the house, and through a film we will present you with the history of the small villages at the foot of Stol. Later we will try some famous honey products – honey schnaps, honey liquer and honey sparkling wine, and of course different sorts of honey. Before we continue on this trip, we will make you a cula (small traveling bag made from a cloth wrapped together at the edges), which will be filled with home made snacks – sausage, lard and bread. We will bord lojtrnik, a special cart with ladders on the side for easier transport if need be. In the old days these carts were used for transport of hay, grass, leaves, products and also people. This way your experience of the landscape is sure to be more pristine than just looking out of the bus window. Along the way you will be able to see many details of the country and breathe in some fresh air. We will visit a family with an old apiculture tradition, because they have been dealing with the bees for four generations so far. They will take you into the life of the bees and the work of a beekeper, you will also be invited into the apiary – store, where you will be able to buy typical honey products. Anton Janša, the famous beekeper, started his apicultural way in his birthplacwe – Breznica. You will learn more about the pionir of apiculture in a special guided tour through reconstructed Janša`s apiary in original beehive paintings. Our tour will than take us on the Path of cultural heritage of Žirovnica, where we will stop and take a look in one of the museum houses. On this path we find the birthplaces of France Prešeren, Fran Saleški Finžgar and Janez Jalen and all of their birth houses were turned into museums, but they are still part of their pristine local village surroundings. In one of these houses a local guide will present the life of the chosen writer or poet. Our tour will finish with a special culinary experience under the sky. You will be served with special stew – ajmoht, once first served at weddings and žganci (buckwheat spoonbread), which are a typical peasant dish, typical for Slovenia.
