Zgornja Savinjska Dolina

Pottery Trail

Learn the pottery secrets on an interesting trial along the Zadrečka Valley

The pottery trial leads from Nazarije through the places of the Zadrečka valley. You will visit Žlabor, Kokarje, Potok, Pusto polje and Lačja vas, where the famous Zadrečka pottery was well developed in the past. The second part of the trail leads through Gorica, a forested tertiary terrace between Savinja and Dreta, where potters once dug clay for their products. Even today, well-visible caves are archaeological documents of traditional Zadrečka pottery.
