ALONG SLAK'S PATH
A TRADITIONAL HIKE ALONG THE PATHS OF LOJZE SLAK IN MIRNA PEČ
The hiking trail along the Slak's path is arranged in memory of the music virtuoso on the accordion from Dolenjska and the legend of folk music Lojze Slak, and every year it runs along the permanently marked Slak trail on Trška gora. Trška gora is one of the most famous Slovenian wine hills, where there are on its southern slope, the most vineyard cottages in the world and where they produce excellent cviček wine.
The organizer of the march is the Trška Gora Winegrowers' Association, whose member was also the legendary accordion virtuoso Lojze Slak. The length of the trail is more than eight kilometers (i.e. five miles), it can be walked in two hours and passes the vineyard cottage of the composer Marjan Kozina, the remains of the Bajnof castle, which was mentioned as a wine cellar almost 900 years ago, the famous pilgrimage church at the top of Trška Gora with 400 years old lindens.
The hike along the Slak's Trail begins with a cultural program of accordionists from Mirna Peč at the monument to Lojze Slak, the Kres Folklore Society and the Trška Gora folk singers. The path to the finish line also passes Slak's vineyard cottage and Krkin hram inn into the valley to the estate of the Grm Agricultural School.
