The snail of Motnik
History of Motnik
The rich history of Motnik, which received market rights in 1542, is not reflected only through old buildings and traditions, but also through some well-known residents. Here, Gašper Križnik was born, a well-known collector of Slovenian and foreign fairy tales. Today, a special fairytale festival is held to commemorate his life. A very special tale talks about a giant snail from Motnik, which crawled around Motnik.
