Slovenian myths and legends

The Ljubljana Dragon
You have probably heard the legend about the Greek mythological hero Jason and the Argonauts, who stole the Golden Fleece and fled across the Black Sea, the Danube and Sava Rivers to the Adriatic Sea and continued to Greece. But you perhaps did not know that they also stopped in the Ljubljana Marshes. A fearless dragon lived there, but Jason beat him. Despite this, the dragon left his marks all around Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Can you find them? Here are some tips: ...f-dragons/

The Counts of Celje
There are many legends and stories known about the Counts of Celje. The most popular one is about the unfortunate love between Count Frederick II and Veronika of Desenice. Frederick’s father Hermann II forbade their love, locked Frederick in the castle tower and ordered the drowning of Veronika. As the legend says, Frederick was rescued by his loyal squire who brought him food through the hidden passage. ...s-of-celje

King Matjaž
The legend of King Matjaž tells a story about the good king who ruled during the times of Carantania. He ruled during the golden era in the present-day Carinthia, which other sovereigns didn't like. So, they sent an army to fight the good king. King Matjaž and a hundred of his soldiers retreated to the hidden cave under Mount Peca and sat behind the stone table. The legend says that Matjaž will return and eliminate injustice from the world when his beard wraps around the table nine times and when a linden tree grows in front of the entrance to the cave in winter. Until then, you can explore his kingdom in many different ways.

Erazem of Predjama
Erazem of Predjama was a brave knight who fought the emperor and turned into a kind of Slovenian version of Robin Hood. He fled from the emperor's army to Predjama Castle where he resisted their attacks for over a year. He received food and other necessities through the hidden passages of the Karst underground, but was later betrayed by one of his servants. The latter gave a sign to the emperor’s soldiers, who surprised Erazem, shot stone balls at him and killed him. But Erazem's spirit lives on. ...-predjama/

The Kingdom of the Goldenhorn stretches throughout the Julian Alps. According to a legend, a golden-horned chamois used to rule this world, and his horns were the key to an immense treasure. Once upon a time, a young hunter from the Trenta Valley, who was unfortunate in love, shot at the Goldenhorn, but Triglav flowers grew from the drops of the animal’s blood and eating these gave it tremendous vitality. The Goldenhorn pushed the hunter over the precipice and in its anger destroyed the kingdom with its horns. But the treasure remains hidden in the Triglav mountain range. Find it in many natural beauties and wonders.

Peter Klepec
Learn the tale of the weak shepherd Peter Klepec, who was not in the good graces of his peers. When he protected the mountain fairy from the scorching sun, she thanked him by giving him supernatural powers. The boy managed to tame the wicked shepherds and also the Turks who later invaded across the Kolpa River. According to folk tradition, Peter Klepec came from Osilnica, a place surrounded by the vast Kočevsko forests along the upper reaches of the Kolpa River. Step into his land and experience it in your own way. .../osilnica/

Pegasus, the winged horse in Rogaška Slatina
Rogaška Slatina is famous for its unique mineral water Donat Mg. Did you know that, according to the legend, Greek mythology is also connected with the discovery of this exceptional well? The Greek God Apollo told the winged horse Pegasus where to strike its hoof and open the healing well. With its discovery, Pegasus became an important part of Rogaška Slatina, as is proven by its statue in the town. ...a-slatina/

Legend of the sunken bell
The legend of the sunken bell tells a story about the noble lady Poliksena, who, while grieving for her husband, collected all her gold and silver and used it to cast a bell for the chapel on Bled Island. But, while the bell was being transported to the island, a storm came over the lake and sunk the boat carrying the bell. The sad widow left Bled and went to a convent in Rome. When the Pope heard her story, he ordered that a new bell be made and placed in the steeple of the church on Bled Island. And this bell is said to have special powers.

Hola, vamos a ir del 11 al 15 de octubre a visitar Eslovenia. El aeropuerto al que llegamos es Klagenfurt (Austria) y hemos pensado irnos a Kransjka Gora y alojarnos dos días por la zona. Luego estamos algo perdidos. También nos gustaría visitar Logarska Dolina, pero prefiero que me digáis en esos 4 días qué ruta sería la mejor. No queremos visitar la capital, solo queremos naturaleza y pueblos pintorescos.
Me encantaría que me dijérais rutas para hacer y alojamientos.

@maolmos, te traigo al hilo que ya tenemos para Eslovenia.
Supongo que lo de escandinavos para referirte a los Julianos fue un desliz Guiño
Nosotros hicimos el trayecto al revés, de Eslovenia pasamos a Carintia en Austria y nuevamente a Eslovenia. Puedes verlo en nuestro diario.

En el Foro de Eslovenia tienes distintos hilos de tu interés.

Hola Maolmos. Cerca de Kranjska Gora hay bastante naturaleza:
- Esta la reserva natural Zelenci (entrada y aparcamiento gratuito). Si solo veis el lago, entonces es una visita muy rápida. Pero había varios senderos, que no sé si valen la pena porque no los recorrí.
- También está la cascada Pericnik (entrada gratuita, aparcamiento 5€).
- Si os alejáis un poco, a unos 40 minutos en coche de Kranjska Gora tenéis la Garganta Vintgar (aparcamiento 7 o 10€, entrada 10€). Eso sí, son unos 25 minutos de Garganta y una vez terminado, más de una hora de vuelta por otro...  Leer más ...
