The Tržič Museum presents the once extremely highly developed trades and crafts that were the livelihood for many Tržič residents. The museum premises are in the former Pollak dyehouse and tannery in the old forging and crafts part of Tržič along the still preserved water chutes. Of particular interest is the display of shoemaking and footwear and the display of the tradition of skiing. >
The Lom Valley to the northeast of Tržič is located above the Tržič Bistrica Valley, nestled between the mountains of Konjščica and Javornik to the north and Storžič and Kriška Gora to the south. In cycling through this elongated glacial valley the eye will be drawn to nearby as well as more distant surroundings. From the village of Slaparska Vas onwards the forest road runs along the refreshing Lomščica Brook. >
