A town at the very centre of Slovenia

Litija lies in the eastern part of the wider Ljubljana region and at the same time at the very centre of the country, since the geometric centre of Slovenia (known by the acronym GEOSS) is located in its territory. Litija is also one of the oldest mining towns in Slovenia. Visit the Sitarjevec Mine in Litija, once one of the richest deposits of lead and mercury ore in the country, and admire the unique limonite stalactites, which are among the fastest-growing types of stalactite. Not far away you can view a replica of the Vače situla, the most famous archaeological find in Slovenia, and spend the night on a treetop platform or hanging bed at Experience Treetops. You can complement your trip with a recreational hike along one of the local trails and excellent food at one of the many local restaurants or agritourism farms.
