Autumn is here and with it the time when you can particularly enjoy warm home-made meals, long conversations with friends with a warm cup of tea in your hand and excursions into nature when the falling leaves rustle melodically under our feet. We've put together five suggestions for you to visit and try out this month.
Food: open farms
The hospitality and cosiness of the farms that have open doors for visitors provide some warmth on increasingly cold autumn days. A real farmer's feast awaits you at the table with seasonal ingredients, warm bread from the stone oven, sinfully sweet pastries and homemade sausage products. Natural juices and spirits perfectly complement the relaxed atmosphere by the tiled oven.

Drinks: Teater Cafe
When you walk into the Teater Café, you step into one of the oldest stories in the world, the story of theatre. Each room has its unique ambience in which you can enjoy a delicious coffee, a relaxed conversation or undisturbed reading of the books that you can find on the shelves here. The Teater Café team will then send you on your way with Shakespeare's words: “The whole world is a stage and all the men and women merely players.”

Trip: Šum waterfall
Did you know that there is a 25 meter high waterfall close to the village of Nova vas near Zgornja Besnica. It is hidden in the forest and its little valley is shaped like a vase, so the way there is steep. Be attentive and careful when descending. If you then walk up its river bed, the path leads you to the former Roman bath, described in 1689 by Johann Weichard von Valvasor in his book The Glory of the Duchy of Carniola. In 1954, two smaller pools were built at the thermal spring in which rheumatism patients could find relieve their pain. Today, only some remains of the pools are visible.
Location: Nova vas, 4201 Zgornja Besnica pri Kranju (Google Maps)

NOTE: The event is postponed
The year was 1899 and Kranj was shaken by bloody murders. Join the detective Tadpole and enter the incredibly terrifying underworld, where you will help him solve mysterious murders.
