SIGHTS ALONG THE ROUTE
The Church of St. Bolfenk was built in the sixteenth century in the Baroque style. It lies on 942 meters above the sea level. Legend has it that St. Bolfenk decided where to build the church in such a way, that he threw an ax in a specific direction. Next to the church is
a linden tree, which was planted to commemorate the Peace of Westphalia, at the end of the Thirty Years’ War, in 1648.
Alpine hut Pesnik was built before the World War II. After 1945 its role was significant because the Hut Ribniška koča was burned down. They renamed it to Shelter house Pesnik. Later on, it was closed for a few years, and then renewed and reopened in 1992. Now it is opened all year round between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Here you can enjoy food and drink.
