Day trip to Skofja Loka. Jan 20, 2017
Skofja Loka is one of the most ancient towns in Slovenia. There is a castle here. It was built before 1202 and rebuilt after theearthquake of 1511. Today it hosts an archaeological, ethnological and historical collection of items. Other things worth a lokk in this town are; the CApuchin's Bridge, Homan's House ( there is a cafe - restaurant inside) and some churches.

I attended an interesting event some years ago in Skofja Loka; the Venus Trail. It is a Medieval festival with music, stalls and other happenings. This event is held in seven Slovene towns every year. The idea came from a poem about a 13th century's knight and ministrel who dressed as a woman and travelled 52 towns of what are now located in four countries; Italy, Austria, Slovenia and Czech Republic. The Venus Trail is usually scheduled the last weekend of june every year in Skofja Loka.

Skofja Loka is about 23 km from Ljubljana. Ther journey between Ljulbjana and Skofja Loka takes around forty minutes by bus.
