Welcome in Žiri

On the edge of the Škofja Loka area lays a town named Žiri. Military fortifications around the Žiri Basin bear witness to the fact that Žiri used to be a border town.

Are you interested in life along the Rapallo border between the World Wars, rich shoemaking tradition that continues today in the Alpina shoe factory, and more than hundred successful years of lacemaking school where numerous boys and girls learned bobbin lacemaking? Visit Žiri and discover the town’s rich history!

Žiri has long been known for its tradition of shoemaking. According to legend, the first master-shoemaker got a shoe, which became a model for his further designs, at a nearby intermittent lake, which is still today protected by the Žiri water dragon. Local tales of events in Žiri are also linked to other natural features, such as Matjaž's chamber, a neanderthal cave and a natural stone table for giants. Local inspirations are also rooted in lace patterns. Genuine Žiri lacemaking is still preserved today by the 100-year old lacemaking school.
