You can also see where Ivan Cankar walked, he describes his birth place in his many works. In addition to his memorial house, the memorial house reminds him of a monument and a thematic trail that tells the story of his life with seventeen features.
In addition to these paths, Vrhnika offers you many other beautiful locations for walks.
All of you who enjoy nature and fishing, we invite you to get fishing maps for the rivers that are managed by the Vrhnika fishermen’s family.
This way, you can try and enjoy fishing in the vicinity of Vrhnika, fishing from the coast (in some places watering can be allowed), fishing from the boat and fishing with whirlpool equipment. Some rivers are suitable for beginners, and elsewhere, more experienced fishermen will find their challenge.
Are you trying to overcome a striking overhanging wall? Or would you rather try to test your climbing skills in the climbing center?
For all visitors wanting a challenge, Retovje has a natural climbing area with a striking overhanging wall. You are also invited to the climbing center VERD, where there is a rock climbing wall with various shapes and colors that allow you to compile different difficult climbing routes.
Sea kayak and SUP
One of the biggest treasures in Vrhnika is the Ljubljanica River. Explore it in a slightly different way, up close. Why don’t you head for a trip with a sea kayak or a SUP board?
A sea kayak can be an exciting thing for a trip on the rivers, lakes or the sea. They are longer than the normal kayaks and suitable for a fast but balanced paddling. A SUP board is used for stand up paddling, a fantastic new sport. All you need to know to take up stand up paddling is how to swim so you’re friends don’t need to save you from Ljubljanica (and remind you of the event for the next 3 decades or more).
