Pohorje Hill and its surrounding region are not only known for their natural beauty but also host various historical and cultural sites

  • Church of St. Bolfenk: Perched on Pohorje Hill itself, this church is part of a beautiful 17th-century complex that includes a vicarage, a park, and a nature education trail.
  • Partisan Hospital Franja: A little further away, but within day-trip distance, this hidden hospital from World War II is now a museum dedicated to Slovenia’s partisan history. It was one of the secret hospitals for wounded fighters during the war.

These sites provide a fascinating glimpse into the history and culture of the Pohorje region. Whether it’s historical architecture, ecclesiastical art, or the enduring legacy of Slovenia’s World War II history, there’s plenty to explore on and near Pohorje Hill.
