Franja Partisan Hospital

Franja Partisan Hospital is a symbol of international alliance and resistance against Fascism and Nazism in the time of WWII. It is a symbol of partisan medical activities and speaks to the incredible self-sacrifice and humanity of the medical staff and other staff in their care for the wounded.


Cerkno ski resort

Excellent ski slopes, the most modern and safest skiing facilities, the quality of additional services, headed by the alpine restaurant Alpska Perla at the top of the mountain, are the main reasons for Cerkno having been chosen as the best Slovenian ski resort three years in a row.



The Cerkno hills (Slov. Cerkljansko hribovje) are perfect for cyclists, since they boast remarkably pristine nature and a huge number of picturesque trails. You can choose from both easy and undemanding trails as well as long and more strenuous ones, for which good physical fitness is recommended. Climbs to nearby summits will be rewarded with unforgettable views and those with a need for speed will be thrilled with the descents, as well.


Water activities

Cerkno and its surroundings offer fun through water activities throughout the entire year in the all-round useful and healing thermal water. In the warmer months you can swim in nature as well. Part of the extensive Natura 2000 area is also the Idrijca river, which invites all fans of sports fishing and kayaking. Of course, the clean river also invites you to visit its natural bathing areas.


Archaeological Park Divje Babe

Archaeological Park Divje Babe, which lies in the area of the Idrija and Cerkno hills, is one of the most important archaeological sites of the Early Stone Age in the world. In a steep and rocky slope, which descends from the Šebrelje plateau into the valley of the Idrijca river, lies a hidden cave.


“Laufarija” of Cerkno

Astrong element of the local identity for the municipality and its residents is attributed to the “laufarji”, one of the most recognizable carnival groups in Slovenia. The “Laufarija” of Cerkno has been taking place for centuries according to unwritten rules, which were passed on from generation to generation.



Cerkno and its surroundings are part of the Cerkno hills (Slov. Cerkljansko hribovje). Valleys and narrow ravines with crystal clear waters wind between hills and ridges while plateaus rise in between. Many hiking routes including through-hiking trails transverse this area. There are many marked and maintained hiking trails for Nordic walking as well, providing a delightful experience for hikers during all seasons.


Cerkno Culinary Delicacies

All friends of genuine local cuisine can visit one of the restaurants or tourist farms in the area. You will be able to try dishes such as: smukávc (a side dish made of cabbage or savoy cabbage leaves), štruklji (cooked rolls), little poticas (traditional rolled-up cakes), potratna potica (a cake with walnuts and curd cheese), and many other delicacies. There are also plenty of tasty dishes for the fans of meat and fish.
