Our program Ljubljana marshes by bike

First we will search for the white or grey herons and storks. At town of Ig, we will visit the unique exhibition about pile dwellers who lived some 4.000 years ago. Pile dwellings near Ig were declared as a monument of national importance and inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Time for coffe break. In vilage Brest, we will search for a special bird with the name »kosec«. In the village with the name Lake we usually see a pair of humpback swans. In Podpeč there is usualy possible to see some nutria, and on Mali Plac, which remained the lowest lying peat moors in Europe, I hope to be lucky enough to see very rare endemic turtle called močvirska sklednica. Many times we can observe also deer, more than 200 of them live in Ljubljana Marshes.
