I could only recommend Nature Escape in Cekovnik. This accommodation is placed in a very beautiful surrounding, in the mountains. It takes approximately 15 minutes to get there from Idrija by car. There are multiple tourist attractions in Idrija (e.g. quicksilver mine, the castle, walking trails), but Postojna Cave and Ljubljana are also close. The apartment was clean and well-equipped. The description and photos fully correspond to the reality. The host family lives in the same building, but we had a full privacy. The apartment is hosted by Urban, who is an expert on Slovenian tourist attractions. He gave us many useful tips and explained Slovenian history, culture and cuisine. We also tried the meals prepared by Urban's mother - they were simply delicious.

I work at Idrija Municipal Museum although I've finished study for a physical education teacher. Me and my friend are also working on a new brand - The Idria Lace. I'm very much interested in outdoor sports (mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing) and nature (wildlife and landscape). My passion is travelling. I have travelled most of Europe and some African countries. Black continent really took me over so my biggest wish is to drive Africa North to South someday.

When I can’t travel and meet people on the way I really like to host people in my home town and show them around. As a local tour guide I can suggest what to visit in/around Idrija.

The UNESCO town of Idrija is a paradise for a geologists, engineers or lace makers. But also people who love nature and seek active stay will be amazed.
Uniqueness, peacefulness and relaxing atmosphere of the place it is what makes this place so special.
