Vrsnik-foto Gregor Koželj.jpg

Vrsnik is a sunny 'island' connected by just a narrow ridge with the rest of the Ledine. The entire edge goes steeply down the ravines of the Osojnica, the Poljanska Sora and the Žirovnica. What is now a border 'island' between the Idrijsko Cerkljansko hribovje hills was once part of the Žiri parish.

Vrsnik is a sunny 'island' connected by just a narrow ridge with the rest of the Ledine. The entire edge goes steeply down the ravines of the Osojnica, the Poljanska Sora and the Žirovnica. What is now a border 'island' between the Idrijsko Cerkljansko hribovje hills was once part of the Žiri parish.

First records about the settlement date back to the thirteenth century. Early spring is the most suitable time for visiting, when the saffrons colour the meadows purple. You can get to know this sunny place if you make a round tour of the entire plateau. Along the marked path leading from Govejk, across Vrsnik to Žiri you climb to the highest point of the plateau – the »hardy« Vidic. On a small hill in the middle of the field awaits the St. Thomas church, protected by two mighty linden trees. You will be pleasantly surprised by the view of Triglav and Kamniško-Savinjske Alpe.

Since this was a short hike, feel free to lengthen it by taking a few of the surrounding paths. A short distance from the round route you will be surprised by the place Drag with its specialty. The untypical swamps will take you in, full of fiery orange grasses, white birch trees and colourful merigolds. A picturesque and calming walk through a piece of land speaking about how water in all its forms plays a vital role in the shaping of a landscape.
