Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

The Path of Remembrance and Comradeship

During World War II the Province of Ljubljana, occupied by Fascist Italy, was subjected to brutal repression after the emergence of resistance and the occupying forces put the barbed wire fence around Ljubljana in order to prevent communication between the city’s underground Liberation Front activists in Ljubljana and the majority of Slovene Partisans in the surrounding countryside. The barbed wire fence existed between 1942 and 1945, when, on 9 of May, Ljubljana was liberated.

What it exists now is a 34 km long walkway,around the city, that was completed in 1985 ,still keeping the name it got in those times: The Path of Remembrance and Comradeship –Pot spominov in tovarištva-P1080073aaa ,as we find written on the boards with the path map.  The street signs and metal markers are under same name also P1080085aaa P1080093aaa

The walkway got 102 octagonal memorial stonesP1080126aaa, places to where the bunkers used to be and represented on the map by the small red starts. Few of them, I got to discover today with Tasha on our walkP1080063aaa P1080068aaa P1080105aaa

This walkway, meant as a historical monument of the City of Ljubljana it also became the Green Ring  –Zeleni prstan ,around Ljubljana , due to all the sports that can be enjoyed on it . The city hall of Ljubljana is organizing, between 9-11 on may, walks along the path of wire –Poti ob žici this year they do it for the right of water worldwide. Places for sport have been organised all along the path like this oneP1080114aaa P1080115aaa and there are some really beautiful sights for dog walkingP1080101aaa 😉
