Trubarjevi kraji Public Institute
The tourist offer of the institute includes insights into ethnological, sacral, cultural, and natural heritage and hiking. The European hiking trail E-6 and E-7 crosses here and leads to an amazing walk through the diverse landscape with hills, forests, streams, waterfalls, meadows, farms and castles, churches and Roman ruins (Claustra Alpium Iuliarum). On every hill, a medieval church or chapel is built, which is a very unique feature for the Slovene cultural landscape, and connected with pilgrimage trails. The following churches are under the Trubarjevi kraji Public Institute supervision and well worth a visit: the Church of Mary the Queen of Angels on Velika Slevnica, St Lenart in Krvava Peč, St Ahac on the Mountain, and St Primož and St Felician in Zgonče.
