Pekrska Gorca Hill

Pekrska Gorca Hill

Also called Slovenska Kalvarija (Slovenian Ordeal)

Great view of the northern Pohorje and the Maribor Plain

Ascend the 351 metre high hill, Slovenska kalvarija (Slovene Calvary), where you can relax and enjoy the surrounding forests and vineyards (try the wine Pekrčan). At the top of Pekrska gorca stands a little church, where every Sunday you can attend mass. The Way of the Cross, with four beautifully renovated chapels, leads you up the eastern side to the church. From the top of the hill there is a unique view of the northern slope of Pohorje and the Maribor plain.

International ski-jumping competitions on Pekrska gorca

In 1955 a 60 m ski-jump, designed by engineer Stanko Bloudek, was erected on the north-eastern slope of Pekrska gorca. Until the 1970s international ski- jumping competitions took place here. At the beginning of the 1980 s the ski-jump was removed but the remains, in form of a concrete foundation, are still visible today.
