  • Tolmin Castle is a fortress ruin on the ridge of Kozlov Rob above the town of Tolmin, first mentioned in 1188, and its chapel of Saint Martin in 1194. The castle is currently in ruins, though parts of it have been restored. A trip to the castle is a pleasant tour along the educational forest trail. It's approximately 30min walk.
  • Short but intensive walk, rewarded with magnificent views. Around noon mid August we only met a handful of other hikers.
  • Lovely sunset walk up to the castle, very beautiful and relaxing forest and the top of the hill is even better.
  • Great view over Tolmin and surrounding.
  • Very beautiful view of the valley and not full with tourists. But be warned, the climb is steep, so be prepared.
