From here, the route will lead to the top of Šilentabra, where one of the largest anti-Turkish fortresses in Slovenia once stood. The hiking efforts will then be facilitated by the descent to the tourist village of Narin, from where the hike will end in a circular fashion back in the Military History Park.

HISTORY WEEKEND – 13.-15. September 2024 (Military History Park)

This year, the Military History Park is also preparing ZgodoVikend on the third weekend of September, this time between September 13 and 15, 2024, as the central museum event of the year and the largest military history event at the national level! ZgodoVikend, which with a new guise succeeded the former Festival of Military History, is designed as a multi-day series of events intended for intensive learning and experiencing of history. ZgodoWeekend traditionally begins with Vestirnga, the annual familiarization of military conscripts organized by the Defense Administration, whereby conscripts are brought to the event on traditional conscription wagons. The lively event continues on Saturday with an enriched museum program, numerous museum guided tours and the Stanislav Požar Barracks open day, and culminates on Sunday with demonstration drives of armored vehicles from the collection’s rolling stock and a dynamic presentation of the Slovenian Army and Police.

The organizer reserves the right to change the program.
