At the moment I can still say that I have lived in Šiska district for more than half of my life and one of the best things for us when we were children – not that we wouldn’t do that as adults, it’s just the winters are rarely as cold as they used to be – was visiting Koseski bajer which is a pond in the Koseze neighbourhood.
This small artificial lake would freeze over and we’d ice-skate on it. What used to be a clay pit, has served mainly fishermen in the last years, modellers play here with their favourite toys and of course in accordance with Slovenian characteristics, which is exercising, like jogging or cycling around it. There is a footpath that goes around it with several benches along the way.
Koseski bajer lies on the foothills of Roznik and Šisenski hrib which are hills between here and the centre. These places are included in a natural protected area. The Path of Remembrance and Comradeship passes by the pond and that’s why this all together is Mecca for nature lovers. New sitting areas were constructed a few years ago stretching along the surface of the lake.
