The World of Fairy Tales

With the goblin Perkmandeljc in the underground world and above


An interesting sight of the Slapšak homestead is an abandoned mine tunnel, in which visitors learn about the life and work of miners 500 years ago and the history of mines in Padež. After the tour, visitors go for a walk along the Perkmandeljc forest educational trail, or back to the farm.

Along the forest educational trail, visitors follow the cues of Perkmandeljc in the search for the hidden treasures of nature. In this way, they can learn about the geological structure of the earth, mineral wealth, work in the mines, Karst formations, underground fauna, the importance of forest for the life of animals and people, types of undergrowth, forest birds and their nesting places, forest animals and their dwellings etc.

Perkmandeljc’s fairyland

From the Nemec tourist farm you will hike to Govce, a 700-year-old village. You will be accompanied by a former miner, who will reveal the secrets of the mine goblin Perkmandeljc while visiting natural and cultural sights, and you will also get answers to questions such as: how, when and why different types of coal occurred, how important coal was in the development of man and why it used to be called dragon’s blood. A part of the trail is a geological educational trail, where you will get acquainted with different rocks and the treasures hiding in them. You will also see old fruit types, which offer a home to birds, and a beehive.

At the end of your trip, you will receive a real miner’s snack, neatly wrapped in a small sack in memory of an unforgettable experience.
