After the meeting and the welcome we will share walking sticks and a small backpack with a bottle of water. We'll teach you how to walk with sticks and go on a tour.

Here we will tell you the story of the history of Marija Bistrica, the significant people who stayed here, traditional crafts and the customs and way of life of local people. Then we'll walk through the beautiful beech forest. We will enjoy walking through the small vineyards and passing the grassy meadows through picturesque villages, where you will learn the historical significance of wine production for this region. We will enjoy singing birds as we sit down and rest on benches in the woods. Through villages with old traditional houses and green meadows we will reach the Hellenbach Castle, where we will tell you the story of the people who lived there. We'll stop and see the beautiful giant oak tree. We will slowly climb through the forest to the nearby hill, where there are numerous wooden sculptures of religious, traditional and historical motives from the life of the local population. Descent through the forest we will arrive at the point of departure. There we will share impressions, thank you and say goodbye.
