Cankar Boyhood Trail

Walk where Cankar walked. Listen to the stories of his childhood.

Cankar was strongly attached to Vrhnika, his birthplace, which is evident from his descriptions of the town in many of his works. Vrhnika remembers its native son with the Cankar Memorial House, a monument and a literary trail – Cankar Boyhood Trail.

The trail has seventeen stations and it leads to, among other places, The School under the Bridge or in Slovene ‘Enajsta šola pod mostom’ and the church Sv. Trojica (Church of Holy Trinity). The path ends in Močilnik, one of the beautiful springs of Ljubljanica.

Cankar Boyhood Trail is full of interesting stories and anecdotes, so a guided tour is highly recommended. The tour lasts three hours (this includes the viewing of Cankar Memorial House), but you can choose to visit only certain locations.
