Rupnik Line at Zaplana

Explore Zaplana's military history and at the same time do something good for your body … up and down the hills, left and right along the foothpaths.

Rupnik Line was built at Zaplana in the period before the Second World War. The Kingdom of Yugoslavia expected to be attacked by Italy and began to build a system of fortifications in the territory of western Slovenia. The line was named after the Yugoslav General of Slovenian descent, Leon Rupnik. The Slovenian part of the defensive line, however, never participated in direct conflict. It was abandoned before the general Italian attacks due to the withdrawal of the Yugoslav army.

You can discover the role and functioning of the bunkers if you take the thematic trail Rupnik Line. You can even view the interior of some bunkers. The path is pleasant and suitable for families. It is approximately 3 kilometers long and has 10 meters of altitude difference. Two benches along the trail give you an opportunity to rest and admire the nature. 

Another interesting fact - along the way there are five energy points.
