    Tržič is located at the southern foot of the magnificent Karavanke Alps, at the confluence of the River Tržaška Bistrica and Mošenik Stream. It’s an excellent starting point for exploring the Karavanke Alps. From here, you can go into Austria across the Ljubelj Pass. For centuries, this pass represented a window into western Europe, where the people of Tržič sold their handicraft products. The old town centre is protected as a cultural monument.

    A town nestled at foot of the Karavanke Alps

    Tržič is surrounded by tall hills and rocky slopes. It’s just the right place for an adventure on your bike, on a rock-climbing wall, or with a backpack on a mountain hike.

    Dovžan Gorge

    If you’re planning a visit to Tržič, make sure not to miss the nearby Dovžan Gorge natural monument. This picturesque valley is located approximately 3 km northeast of Tržič.

     

    The River Tržiška Bistrica created an incredibly interesting gorge in a geological sense: you can see rocks from the late Palaeozoic Era, which are from 260 to 300 million years old, and many fossils. An educational trail runs through the valley, and those who are skilled in climbing can enjoy a climbing route.
