In the frame of the cross-border cooperation programme Interreg V-A Slovenia-Austria, in cooperation with the Austrian programme partner Amt der Kärntner Landesregierung and the Geopark Karavanke/Karawanken, we will celebrate this year’s European Cooperation Day (EC day) on Friday, 21 September 2018 in the cross-border area of Carinthia. On this occasion, we invite you to join us at the event “Doživeti čezmejni Geopark / Den grenzübergreifenden Geopark erleben“, ie. a free cross-border trip to the Geopark Karavanks.

We will head to Mežica, where after a snack we will take the train to the Mežica mine. After visiting the underground of the Peca/Petzen mountain on the Slovene side, we will then drive by cable car up to the Peca/Petzen Mountain on the Austrian side and then go for a short panoramic hike. We will conclude the event with a joint gathering at the cottage Alte Zollhütte/Siebenhütten.

Bus departures in Slovenia are planned from Ljubljana, Kranj, Jesenice, Celje, Velenje, Slovenj Gradec, Ptuj, Maribor, Dravograd, Lendava, Murska Sobota and Gornja Radgona. Participants from Austria can join us in Pinkafeld, Güssing, Graz, Klagenfurt and Villach.
