PATH OF REMEMBRANCE AND COMRADESHIP

Seven thousand trees and numerous memorials on the city's longest avenue.

PATH OF REMEMBRANCE AND COMRADESHIP

You can set off on the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship (PRC) anywhere you like, but for easier orientation, let's say that it starts and finishes near the City bus stop at Dolgi Most.

LJUBLJANA'S GREEN RING

The PRC is also called Ljubljana's Green Ring, as its 34 kilometres follow the route of the barbed wire with which the Italians encircled the city during the Second World War. The four-metre wide mostly sandy path was completed in 1985, surrounded by 166 hectares of green space and over 7,000 trees. This unique green recreational area, which partly runs through residential areas of the city, is used by residents for walking, running, cycling or enjoying nature.

THE CITY'S LONGEST AVENUE

The PRC, which has been declared a historical monument and a monument of designed nature, is a memorial to faith in freedom and a memorial for today's and the future Europe.

RECREATION AND SOCIALISING IMBUED WITH THE SPIRIT OF HISTORY

Today the path is a splendid piece of city infrastructure, which enables residents recreation all year round, as when there's a blanket of snow, cross-country trails are marked out in non-residential areas. The most popular event on the PRC is the annual Walk on 9 May – a holiday in Ljubljana, which attracts over 30,000 people.
