To the south along Zelena os (the Green axis)
Set out from the Sports Park Domžale . Begin counterclockwise from the traffic lights through the Sports Park to the Green axis – cycling and footpath along the Kamniška Bistrica River in the direction of the river current. As a very young city, Domžale hasn't got an old city centre, but it has got the beautiful Green axis along the Kamniška Bistrica River. Too soon does the idyllic path along the water end . Cycle through the forest to Ihan. There is a detailed map of the settlement and its vicinity in the middle of the village at the crossroads under the horse chestnuts . At the chapel turn right past the Church of St. George . The former church and the entire village were burnt down six hundred years ago by the Turks. Most of the present churches in Slovenia were built or renovated after the end of Turkish invasions. At the end of Ihan start ascending to Brdo. The 'To the trenches of our forefathers Route' is indicated by number 5 .
Commemoration at Oklo
From a sharp turn at Brdo quite a steep ascent through the forest begins. Adjust the gear and indulge in the embrace of the forest. Forest protects and shelters, but at the same time gives a feeling of uncertainty. At the beginning of Dobovlje, continue straightforward to the macadam road . At the triangular crossroads turn right to Oklo S09]. At the platform behind the renovated ruins is a commemorative monument . Under the impression of a tragic event from the fresh February morning in 1944, return along the same way.
To Sv. Trojica (Holy Trinity)
Continue through the forest to the village of Žeje and ascend to the centre of the village where one of the biggest monuments of St. Florian in the world is located. The connection between the greatest protector of fire-fighters, St. Florian, and the name of the town is still not clear. There is not much water in this karst land and it is difficult to quench thirst, let alone put out fires. Start the Stations of the Cross (meaning: continue the steep ascent) to the Church of the Holy Trinity in the eponymous village. The Stations of the Cross are marked in Roman numbers so that you know how far it is to the top . This is the highest settlement in the Municipality of Domžale (560 m). There used to be a magnificent view from the church, but nowadays you can only peep through the treetops . Return and continue along the ridge past the pond and to the chapel at Konfin . It is only a stone's throw away to the observation platform. Steep ascent has been long forgotten, so just enjoy the beautiful view of Sv. Trojica and Domžale , the Moravče Valley and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps .
Towards the Moravče Valley
A steep descent starts in Zgornja Javoršica at the crossroads . The Moravče Valley is as clear as a day . At the beginning of Spodnja Javoršica, there are a lot of antiquities collected in the hayrack . Collector Miro will gladly show you his rich collection . Descend through the forest to Vrhpolje. There is an old house at the crossroads, dating back to 1893 . In the centre of the village is the Church of St. Peter and Paul .Next to it is Pečar Homestead . Leave Vrhpolje past the school and fire station. Continue along the diverse landscape to Spodnji Tuštanj.
A signpost informs about the nearby castle . Modern lord of the manor will gladly show you the museum collection . You need approximately half an hour for the visit. The story of the castle gardener Luka Pirnat is also a little patriotic. Slovenian forefathers did not just defend. A mighty plane tree and a castle chapel are in front of the castle. The castle garden is renewed as the old one was probably neglected after Luka had married the countess. At the end of Sp. Tuštanj along the main road, there is a wooden construction at the dilapidated outbuilding from which a construction method can be observed. Continue downwards to the valley of the Rača River and to the village of Krašce. In the old Frfrau Inn at the crossroads you can have a snack . The year 1849 on the entrance door indicates that the inn is really old .
Over hills to Krtina
Carefully cross the main road at the first crossroads and continue left while enjoying the beautiful views of the Posavje Hills . Cycling across the hilly land of the Moravče Valley is as if cycling across molehills. However, these molehills are populated, cultivated and, if you're lucky, sunlit . Only one turning away from Imenje is the saddle. A view of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps opens up . Descend past Spodnje Koseze . At the end of Imovica, you can see the church at Krtina ahead and the Church of St. Canzian in Škocjan on the left which is only few paddles away . At the monument in Brezje turn right towards Krtina. You can feel the spirit of the village at the beginning of the settlement . You can cycle up the 'molehill' amid Krtina (Molehill) where an interesting camp fort with church and individual belfry is located . How did the Turks see the walls, which was once even a few metres higher ? A house where you can ask about a visit to the church leans on the walls. Visit it; you won't be sorry . Descend down the path back to the road.
To the solitary karst hill Gorjuša
When you cross the motorway, you arrive to Dob to the Church of St. Martin . There is a garden with the solar clock at the church. On the other side of the Rača River, in the forest, is Dob Open-air Theatre ,. In the park opposite the theatre is a monument to Slovenian Independence War . The pyramid monuments across Slovenia resemble roadblocks. Cycle over the motorway to Gorjuša, a solitary karst hill. There is Krumperk Castle in the distance . The path there leads across Gorjuša. The ascent is short, but demanding. You arrive to Jamarski dom Inn from the back. There are some permanent collections and the food is also on offer.
When you descend from Jamarski dom Inn you see Krumperk Castle once again . Even today, although it has lost some of its former glory, it is still an impressive sight. The horses graze in its vicinity . What the mighty walls would tell you if they were able to speak. It was too hard of a teaser for the Turks to conquer. You can observe the castle for one last time at the next hill . At the ski jump continue straightforward along the motorway, cross it after Mgan Inn and return to the Sports Park. Slovenians had to be frequently in trenches in the past.
