Mežica

The principal town of this municipality, idyllical town of Mežica, is the Alpine and mining centre, as its name indicates, of the Mežiška dolina valley. While already the Romans were mining under Mt. Peca, today the Peca underground is turned into a tourist mine and museum. There are beautiful and nicely kept forest roads and mountain paths leading to all the surrounding hills. Some of these roads and paths lead to the Dom na Peci mountain hut where king Matjaž sleeps in the nearby cavern. Above Mežica there are some interesting points: the church of St. Lenart with a miraculous chain, Breg with its significant granaries and Lom with its magnificent views over neighboring Podjuna/Jauntal.
