Turn right and continue towards the starting point in Litija.


Zgornja Jablanica is a traditional countryside village in the range Posavsko hribovje. It developed simultaneously with the old mining industry which dates back to Roman times. Numerous double hayracks (the Toplars) and outbuildings from the times of Levstik are proof of the land’s fertility. The locals are cheerful, they like to sing and protect their cultural heritage.
