Our Posavje hills have a special touch, which may win you over at first, but if not, they will enchant you with the second step. Lisca is certainly one of the most striking peaks of the Posavje hills, with its height of 947 meters above sea level. It is an extremely popular excursion point, as it enables conquest for more fitness affine as well as less prepared recreationists with several starting points.
Lisca offers hiking, climbing and cycling trails, as well as being accessible by car. However, we prefer to focus on conquering Lisca “on foot”. The mountain trails are nicely and clearly marked, so there is no reason to be afraid to stray from the path. My favourite route is from Krakovo (starting point). The trail leads us through forests, villages and meadows, and in good weather conjures up views far and wide.
Just below the top, the path leads us past the church of St. Jošt, from where it is only a few minutes to the top of Lisca. Two mountain huts, Tončkov dom and Jurkova koča greet us at the top. Where they instantly have an excellent culinary offer, from classic mountain menus to a little more modern cuisine, pancakes :=). At the highest point, just a minute away from the hut, is one of the two radar meteorological stations in Slovenia.
In good weather, Lisca offers views all the way to Triglav and the admiration of paragliders, which together with the wind have the Posavje in the palm of your hand. The conquered peak will also enrich the “green” Diary of the Slovenian mountain trail, as it is one of the peaks of the Extended Slovenian mountain trail.
Here are some basic facts about conquering Lisca from Krakovo:
- Starting point: Krakovo (Mastnak wine cellar; arranged parking lot opposite the cellar)
- Difficulty: easy marked path
- Length: 4 km
- Walking time: 1 h 45 min (average pace)
- Recommended time of year to visit: all seasons
In any case, we must not forget that there is also a bench of love on Lisca, which we can already find on quite a few Slovenian peaks. So, if the above didn’t convince you yet, let me mention that the location of the bench itself offers a kind of privacy where you can enjoy the views of the hills that open up in front of you, and you feel like you have them in the palm of your hands in an instant.
