Motnik

At the end of Tuhinj Valley the village of Motnik is located, boasting numerous cycling and hiking trails. Motnik is the birthplace of the famous Slovenian literary collector, Gašper Križnik. Each year, a festival bearing the same name is held in Motnik (Križnik Fairytale Festival).

Sveti Miklavž na Gori Hill

The best way to reach the Gora Hill is to start at Snovik Spa and head towards the village of Snovik. Afterwards, you need to turn right at the chapel. The marked trail will lead you to the village of Hruševka. Once you cross Hruševka Stream, turn right onto the cart track that leads to the top of Gora, where the fortified Church of Saint Nicholas with the caretaker’s quarters is located. The oldest church parts stood here already in late antiquity, which means that the spot has always been an important strategic point. Next to the church, wooden caretaker's headquarters with openfire kitchen are located, again presenting an important part of architectural heritage. The trail to Sv. Miklavž na Gori is well marked, as it continues towards Preval.

Granaries

The open-air permanent exhibition of granaries is part of the Kamnik Regional Museum. Here, you can see rustic outbuildings, such as granaries, drying fruit equipment, wells etc. from Tuhinj Valley. The granaries used to be the heart and soul of each farm. The oldest dates to 1793.
