POT – The green ring

The gravel-paved footpath around the city Pot spominov in tovarištva is The Path of Remembrance and Comradeship. Sometimes it’s also called the Green Ring, but signs on the path refer to it as POT (which means a path).

Where there used to be a barb wire fence which surrounded Ljubljana during World War II, there is now a 33 km long path which crosses today’s urban area and outskirts of the city. What was built to prevent contacts between the city and its hinterland is now connecting Ljubljana.

To the people living in Ljubljana, me included, this is mainly a recreational path on which we can jog, cycle or just have a pleasant walk. In some of the more hidden parts of this Green Ring late at night some cars can be parked, searching for some privacy.

The biggest event is the traditional recreational March along the Path around Ljubljana to mark the liberation of Ljubljana on 9 May 1945. This year the March celebrated the 60th anniversary and participation was record-breaking. This truly is one of my favorite events in Ljubljana.
