MOUNTAIN KINGDOM OF STORIES AND WONDERS
The Tržič area is a paradise for seekers of adventure and mystery
The older folk of Tržič know that dragons once roamed here. One of them is responsible for the creation of Tržič. Nowadays, when supposedly the dragons are no more, there is a prevail-ing sense of peace and bound-less beauty along the forest and mountain paths. But a traveler to these parts should not be fooled by this – every stone here has its own story.
In the Dovžan Gorge (Dovžanova soteska) alone there are thousands of such stories. The gorge is older than the dino-saurs. Its 300 million-year -old walls con-tain thousands of fossils from times that pre-date even the dragons. The roads in the Tržič area are not so old; they date from the time of ancient Rome. During that time wagons rattled along them over the Loibl Pass; today they are host to the annual races of oldtimer cars and motor-cycles, a true sight to behold.
Another sight to behold are the views from here.
The Tržič area offers a wealth of trails affording breathtaking views to trekkers, mountaineers, climbers, moun-tain bikers, scouts, adrenaline lovers, hang-gliders, parachutists, ski mountain-eers, ski jumpers, snowboarders, fisher-men and hunters, as well as to historians, geologists, poets, and lovers of all things beautiful.
Many famous people lived in these beautiful forested valleys.
For instance, Marshal Radetzky, who was immortalized in Johann Strauss I’s Radetzky March. The astronaut Sunita Williams, who has logged more than 3000 flight hours in over 30 different aircrafts, has her roots here. Tržič is home to several world-class skiers, among them the first Slovenian world record holder in ski-jumping Jože Šlibar, the initiator of Slovenian skiing hysteria Bojan Križaj, and the Olympic silver medalist in snowboarding Žan Košir. Which is no surprise, according to locals, since in winter this area has the best powder in Slovenia. Is this true?
In Tržič everything is possible and every-thing is true
