The idyllic town of Mežica is the principal, Alpine and mining tourist centre of the Mežica Valley. The Romans were the first to mine here under Mount Peca and today its underground houses a tourist mine and a museum. The forest roads and mountain trails lead to the surrounding hills. They also lead to the cabin at Mala Peca, where King Matjaž sleeps in a nearby cave. Above Mežica you will find the interesting Church of St. Lenart with the miracle-working chain, Podkraj with its typical granaries, and Lom with beautiful views over the neighbouring Podjuna. The area also holds a bee-making collection and several interesting interpretation points connected by a geological and hiking educational trail. The central Mežica sight is the Podzemlje Pece (Peca Underground) – a tourist mine and a museum which also holds the informational centre of the cross-border UNESCO Global Karavanke Geopark.
