Kamnik, a paradise for cyclists

Cycling experts should try the tour to Velika planina or Menina planina, whereas recreational cyclists will enjoy the trail from Kamnik to Volčji Potok Arboretum and back. Those who favour unpaved trails, should try Srobotno, where a wonderful view of Motnik and the Church of St. George awaits you. If you prefer shorter and steeper trails, head for Stari grad from the city centre. You will be charmed by the remains of an old castle (Stari grad in Slovene) located on the top.
