The Bistra Valley, sheltering the lively Bistra alpine stream, is a green oasis at the heart of nature. Walk by lonely farms in the company of the stream’s gentle murmur to reach tourist farms where you can indulge in traditional dishes. Bistra is known for Carinthian beehives which are the best-preserved in this very area. Natural attractions include old and rare trees, such as the so-called “candlestick” spruces at Ježevo. The Bistra Valley is a great starting point for visiting the mighty Raduha Mountain or Smrekovec, the extinct volcano, where the Karavanke UNESCO Global Geopark will reveal interesting details about the geological particularities of the volcanic area.
During the Second World War, Bela peč, high up the slopes above Rigelnik, was home to a partisan hospital B/11 – Pepca, dedicated to Pepca Tomazin. In 1986, the old hospital was equipped with props, and now hosts a permanent exhibition.
