Mozirje is best known for its idyllic Mozirski gaj flower park as well as the Golte landscape park and ski resort. A short walk to an uninhabited area by the Blate pond is a great idea to complement your trip.
The path starts behind the Brdce apartment block (the last building on Šolska ulica) and leads across a meadow to the forest. Before entering the forest, there is a large wooden sign with the inscription Brdce — Blate forest path. Follow the signs, the cute green frogs on the trees and walk to the beautiful Blate pond, where all sort of summer events take place.
On the way, stop at the bubbling Mozirnica, at the “Dohatr’s spring”. Mozirnica is said to have been known as a healing water that is said to help with women’s health problems and eye pain.
