The Mežica Geopath

The nature trail starts in front of the Tourist Mine and Museum in Glančnik, which houses a collection of minerals, stones, and mineral fossils. The 1.8-kilometre long trail leads through the village of Polena on the main road and runs along the banks of the River Meža to the north side of the town of Mežica. The trail includes educational info points and numerous picnic areas. The first info point is located in Polena at the former operations centre of the mine. Other info points are located at the Pustnikov Jez Dam, where the River Meža is presented as an energy source and a habitat; the Mežica Cultural Centre; the Barget Villa, and next to the primary school in the centre of Mežica.
