I would like personally thank Mr. Benjamin Skaleras and Cycling world for Barje expedition. Even though I have been living in Ljubljana for 40 years professionals at Kolesarski Svet team teach us that the Ljubljana Marshes is a place of great biodiversity. Since 2008, the major part of the Ljubljana Marshes, covering an area of 135 km2 (52 sq mi), has been protected as a landscape park. The most preserved parts had been already before protected as nature reserves and as natural monuments. The Ljubljana Marsh was inhabited in prehistoric times, when it was a shallow lake. Prehistoric pile dwellings and the oldest wooden wheel in the world are among the most notable archeological findings from the marshland. Since 2011, the area of pile dwellings near Ig has been protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Thanks again for great time and best wishes in the future, Miha
