What you'll do

After a 10 min walk through the forest we will arrive at a sacred cave, which was the most important sanctuary of the old faith, it was used for rituals as well as for healing and divination. At the cave Tanja will tell stories of the old religion and explain practices. After the visit to the cave we will drive to the hamlet where we live. We are currently two of its three inhabitants. But the place has a rich history and our stone house is more than a hundred years old. Because of the remoteness it was one of the locations where old religion was preserved for a long time. At our home we will offer you lunch (local dish) and beverages.

Learn more about Tanja & Hákon

Tanja & Hákon

Tanja is a cultural anthropologist and she's always been passionate about religion and researching religious practices. Hakon is a writer from Iceland who loves cooking. Last year we moved from the capital Ljubljana to Soča valley. We knew that we'll be enjoying the tranquility and nature, but Tanja also discovered that the remote hamlet has something to offer to an anthropologist. In fact it has a rich (hidden) history. Scattered upon the hilly landscape (some) inhabitants in Soča valley practised old pre-christianity religious practices long into the 20th century. They simply called it "our faith". Hakon got enthusiastic about the local gastronomy.
