Begunje

Turn-by-turn directions

Start at TIC Žirovnica – Matija Čop’s birth house and continue towards the main road from Žirovnica to Begunje na Gorenjskem. Ride past the villages of Selo pri Žirovnica and Breznica, turn right at Vulkanizerstvo Vulco on the side road in the village that takes you to the wide unpaved road or the so-called “Cesarska cesta”, where you will stay for the most part of your tour.

 

Cross the main road for the first time at Vrba village (pay attention to the traffic) and continue straight on. Soon you will see a short horse-riding area on your left and pay attention to the wayside shrine on your right (a pillar with shingled roof). Roads, cart roads and other paths from all directions lead to it. Continue you straight on the wide unpaved road.

 

The unpaved road runs straight on and barely descends. Do not mind the side roads that lead to the village to the left and right. When you reach an asphalt road in Rodine, there is a farm on your left and wayside shrine on your right. Cross the main road in the village and continue straight on.

 

Soon you will ride along the wide unpaved road to the village of Poljše on your left. To access the village, pay attention to blue signs “Trans Karavanke”, which brings you to the village of Poljče. When you reach the asphalt road, turn left and soon you will reach the main road, cross it over the bridge and at “Nato Center odličnosti” and continue along the village street to the right. Continue straight on and after approx. 500 metres reach the Fire Station in Begunje na Gorenjskem, where you can already see your goal – TIC in Begunje.
