WHAT CAN YOU EXPERIENCE ON ZLATOROG FAIRY TRAIL?

BOHINJ FAIRY TALES

Along the fairy trail in Ukanc you will find characters from local fairy tales. Each character is presented at a special site – there are seven in Ukanc, one on Vogel and one at the entry point to the Savica Waterfall. All the fairy tales presented in the brochure originated from the Bohinj area and have been adapted according to the original texts.

FAMILY ADVENTURES IN NATURE

There are numerous activities that can be played along the fairy trail. They can also be played during family trips elsewhere in nature.

COLLECTING STAMPS

In your booklet, space is dedicated to collecting stamps next to each fairy tale character. Stamps can be found at presentation boards of each fairy tale character. Children collect stamps if they pass the tasks written on the boards next to the fairy tale characters.

SEVEN SENSES

Activities along the fairy trail are designed to encourage the use of the seven senses: sight, hearing,
smell, taste, feel, balance and kinaesthetics. Each fairy trail site focuses on one sense, however, this
does not mean that you only have to use that particular sense.

SEVEN FEELINGS

Children experience different feelings while listening to fairy tales. Some are good and other
less pleasant, but they all are very beneficial and important.

A LOT OF MOVEMENT

The journey along the fairy trail also stimulates various forms of movement. It mostly emphasises
the natural forms of movement like walking, running, jumping, climbing, spinning, swinging and crawling.

YELLOW FLOWERS

As legend has it, the healing yellow flowers, mentioned on the boards, have grown from the dust of Zlatorog’s horns. Together with other beauties of nature, they represent the treasure of Zlatorog.

THE RULES OF THE Zlatorog Fairy Trail

There are TWO SIMPLE RULES that you should consider along the Zlatorog Fairy Trail and in general, too:

  • Love nature and protect it!
  • Be kind to all the living creatures you meet along the trail!

Please consider the rules and boundaries set by and in nature.

ZLATOROG FAIRY TRAIL WEEKEND

One weekend in May, the Zlatorog Fairy Trail turns into a real fairy delight, which attracts more visitors every year. All stations and points of the Zlatorog Fairy Trail are equipped with thematic animations and experiences.

The Zlatorog Fairy Trail is a project run by Bohinj Kindergarten, which functions within the scope of the Janez Mencinger Primary School from Bohinjska Bistrica. It was created within the Tourism and Kindergarten project and has been organised in cooperation with Tourism Bohinj organisation and Bohinj International Wild Flower Festival.
