Turn-by-turn directions

Start at TIC Žirovnica – Matija Čop’s birth house and continue towards the main road from Žirovnica to Jesenice. Turn right towards the end of the village and Jesenice.

 

Stay on the main road until you reach the railway crossing in Žirovnica. The main road here turns left, while you continue cycling straight ahead (NW) to Moste village. The road turns right and descends to a river canyon (a monument dedicated to the soldiers killed in World War 2). The road reaches a large metal railway bridge, turns left and starts ascending. At the highest point, turn right and continue along the ascending road that crosses the railway line (signpost Završnica) At the crossroad, continue straight on and descend along the road running along the main road Žirovnica – Jesenice. Cross the road carefully and continue by descending towards the Moste dam. The descent is short and steep, so please, be careful. Continue across the dam, past the house on the left and then stick to the unpaved road on the right. Start a steep and short ascent that brings you to the meadows before the Blejska Dobrava village.

 

Follow the unpaved road and after approximately 2 km stay right (there is a cemetery on the left, do not cross it). Continue to the industrial area where you turn right towards Lipce village. Continue your tour and enjoy the views of the Karavanke. After a few minutes, cross the Ljubljana – Jesenice motorway and descend along the local asphalt road towards the Lipce village. When you arrive at the main crossroad in Lipce, turn right and descend for a short time along the Blejska Dobrava – Jesenice road. When you finish your descent, stay right and drive across the bridge over the Sava Dolinka and stay on the main road until the semaphore crossroad. Turn left and continue along the main road to the petrol station and crossroad. At the roundabout, leave at the third exit and ride past the shopping centre to reach the cycling route that brings you to your goal, the Stara Sava in Jesenice.
