Every year, the Arboretum Volčji potok attracts crowds of lovers of flowers and nature. A walk through the landscaped garden areas of the park changes throughout the season and never disappoints. It stretches over 88 hectares, and includes five landscaped lakes and 30 hectares of forest.
Nearby, below the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, is the town of Kamnik. Its rich history and the preserved town center take us back to the time when Kamnik was the seat of the Carniolan principality and there were many craft workshops. The birthplace of General Rudolf Maister was once protected by a castle that stood on a hill above the town as early as the 12th century. To this day, a two-storey castle chapel has been preserved here, which still marks the panorama of the city today.
Volčji potok offers us beautiful views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in all seasons and at the same time takes us through a beautifully landscaped forest and park. We will walk around the park and indulge in enjoying the view of the beautiful greenery and flowers of the park. In your free time, you will also be able to peek into the associated garden centre. After a walk in the park, we will head for lunch at one of the local restaurants.
In the afternoon we will visit the town of Kamnik and get to know its rich history on a guided tour.
An ideal trip for all the lovers of different flowers, gardens and nature. My friend and I had a really nice time, wish we could have stayed there 🙂
