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, but on the Saturday closest to May 9th a huge crowd can be seen walking on this path.
This is the biggest event here, the traditional recreational March along the Path around Ljubljana to mark the city’s liberation on 9 May 1945. You can start wherever, walk in one or the other direction and you can stop whenever you want. The most eager ones do, of course, a whole circle.
