59. march along the barbed wire, 7-9 May 2015


The Municipality of Ljubljana and Timing Ljubljana will (from 7th to 9th May 2015) prepare the traditional, now already 59. march along the barbed wire.

The programs have no entrance fee. This is one of the largest sports and recreational events in our country, which every year attracts more than 30,000 participants. Most of the participants are usually attracted by a march along the trails around Ljubljana, where between the Second World War the wire fence of Italian and later on the German occupiers was. That’s why it is called “March along barbed wire”. The event is for everybody, younger and older people who are aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and want to spend a day in good company, relaxed atmosphere and meet Ljubljana from hiking perspective.

Participants of the recreational march along the 34 kilometre Path around Ljubljana will be able to choose from several tracks of different lengths.

Detailed instructions are available at the website www.pohod.si.
