About the tour
We meet at the dragon from the rooster's egg (opposite the Tržič bus station).
We'll start with an informative stroll around the old town centre of Tržič. In one of the side streets we'll visit a leather workshop that offers unique, handmade leather bags, belts, wallets, slippers and other beautiful things. Then we'll walk past the old industrial area, which once made Tržič an important economic centre.
In front of the Sokolnica building, a recreation hall more than one hundred years old, we'll learn some interesting things about sport, mining, and Tržič's connection with France.
We'll conclude the tour in style with a stop at the premises of the former Peko footwear factory and visit the shoe company Proalp, which draws on the rich shoemaking tradition of Tržič. We'll look at their manufacturing of shoes and experience a firsthand presentation.
**In case the company Proalp is closed, our tour will finish at the hill by St. Joseph's Church above Tržič.
