Škofja Loka ©
Skofja Loka works great as a starting point for explorations into the Julian Alps, very near the country's capital Ljubljana.
Escape the urban bustle at Velika Planina and Sabotin. Visit Škofja Loka Castle and Anthony's Shaft Mining Museum for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Škofja Loka side-trips: Cerklje (Hribar's Villa & Krvavec), Idrija (Idrija Kamst, Gewerkenegg Castle, &more) and Franja Partisan Hospital (in Cerkno). There's lots more to do: snap pictures at Capuchin Bridge, don't miss a visit to Šmartno, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Church of the Annunciation of Mary, and get great views at Sveta Gora (Holy Mountain).
