On Saturday, 3 September 2022, the Sheepdog Ball will take place at Zatrnik. The event is organised by RTC Zatrnik d.o.o. It is a cultural and entertainment event aimed at reviving or preserving the traditional customs associated with sheep farming and the end of the grazing season, as well as promoting winter and summer tourism in the Gorenjska region.


Hike through the Pokljuka Gorge and tour of the gorge under the guidance of the expert staff of the Triglav National Park Public Institute. It is obligatory to register in advance for the guided tour by sending an e-mail to [email protected]

As the number of participants is limited, registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The meeting will take place on 3 September 2022 at 9:30 at the entry point to the Pokljuka Gorge from Jela in Krnica.

The number of parking spaces in Krnica is limited, in case of occupied parking spaces we suggest parking in Zgornje Gorje near the primary school or at the Gorjanski dom. A free bus service will also be organised on the route Bled-Gorje-Krnica-Pokljuka in both directions.
