FROM PODGORJE ALONG THE GREEN PATH TO CASTLE VODRIŽ AND FURTHER TO SLOVENJ GRADEC AND VELENJE LAKE


After a long time, we are here again with our new adventure, as the current situation with corona virus has paused our explorations. We hope that the conditions will normalize soon and we can go back to calmer times and will be able to rediscover the secrets of our little Slovenia. This time, the path took us to Carinthia, namely to Slovenj Gradec, Podgorje pri Slovenj Gradcu and local Green path with stories from Podgorje to Wiederdries or Vodriž. It is a school didactic path, which was established in the year 2016 by primary school Podgorje pri Slovenj Gradcu. The path is circular and along it offers numerous mathematical, natural-scientific, and literary tasks, presented on informational boards and accompanying story.

From beautiful nature, through history to urban heritage! — Travel-Slovenia

Grad Vodriž or Wiederdries stands tall!

We started our journey in front of Cultural home Podgorje, where there is also a monument to the fallen fighters for freedom, who participated in the rebellion of the Slovenian nation between the years 1941 – 1945. From here, the path takes us back to the main road, which we follow for some time. The starting point of the Green path with a story is otherwise in front of primary school, where the first informational board is. We follow the road as long as the wooden board with inscription “Zelena pot z zgodbo do gradu Wiederdries” (en. Green path with story towards castle Wiederdries) directs us to the right, on macadam road. Soon we reach the second informational board, where prince Lawrence (si. Lovrencij) and princess Veronica (si. Veronika) ask us to, with a help of shapes, mark our presence. This is how we can find out, how many researchers have already taken the Green path. As this point is located some meters higher, a beautiful view opens towards surrounding forests and settlement Podgorje.
