Every second Sunday in September, hikers from the three countries at the north-western triple border (Tromeja) of Slovenia, Italy and Austria, gather at the top of the 1508m high Peč hill above Rateče and celebrate life with goodwill, polka, food and stunning views.
This year the event has been postponed for a week due to the bad weather forecast. The 40th meeting at Tromeja will therefore take place on Sunday, September 15.
On the Slovenian side of the border the event begins at 08:00, when hikers gather in front of Šurc Guesthouse in Rateče from where they then hike to Tromeja, where food and drinks will be on offer from 09:00, music will be playing and a traditional meeting of mayors from all the three countries will take place. The programme will conclude at 17:00.
The event is organized by the Rateče - Planica, Podklošter and Trbiž Tourist Associations.
