Description

Head from Ljubljana directly to the UNESCO-listed town of Idrija. First, make a visit to Anthony's Shaft, the oldest preserved entrance to the mercury mines in Idrija, and one of the oldest in Europe. Named after St. Anthony of Padua, considered to be the cave patron and protector of disasters, marvel at this sight. Continue with a city tour of Idrija and a demonstration of lacemaking. Take some free time to relax or have lunch in one of the local taverns in town. From Idrija, continue your tour as you head to the Wild Lake, followed by one of the highlights of your tour, the Hospital Franja. Visit this site, which operated as a partisan hospital in extremely difficult conditions and in a hardly accessible area, during World War 2.
