Kurešček pilgrimage: Queen of Peace
Mileage and timing: up to 60 km, 4 to 5 hours + stops
We start with a walk through the Ljubljana Botanical Garden and preparation for the ride.
Ascents of different altitudes take us over the Ljubljana Marshes past Turjak and Četež to Zapotok and Kurešček.
The history of the church on Kurešček is shrouded in darkness of distant centuries. The first traces date back to the turbulent times of Turkish invasions. Even the local name tells us, that they were burning pyre as a warning that turks are coming.
The trail is partly unpaved, and in some parts ascents are demanding. Different difficulty levels are possible. It is appropriate for expirienced cyclists. see also Challenge Tour
