The Brezje Path of Peace

The Breze Path of Peace leads from Brezje predominantly through the forest to the Peračica waterfalls. It represents the coexistence of the natural, cultural and spiritual landscape.

The Brezje Path of Peace

This circular path begins in front of the Basilica of Mary Help of Christians in Brezje and gradually descends across several terraces into the valley of the Peračica stream. Not far from here green volcanic rock, known as Peračica tuff, was once extracted. On the edge of the the fields surrounding Brezje the path splits; either continue alongside the stream to walk the entire route or take a shortcut along a logging trail.

Length: 2.5 or 5.7km
Estimated time: 2 hours
Total height difference: 160m
