Bandits mountain route, Lukovica

Turistično zveza Lukovica

The land of the infamous bandits is traversed by a 58-kilometres mountain trail with 13 control points, which one can complete in two parts. The highest peak along the way is 957-metres Špik, and the Reber outlook tower might also be very appealing. The bandits were deserters who fled into the forest at the times of Illyrian Provinces, at the beginning of the 19th century instead of serving 14 years of military service. According to the common lore, they were viewed in the same light as Robin Hood, as they were supposedly taking away from the rich and giving to the poor. The Lukovica Municipality honoured them in its coat-of-arms.
