Emmaus

Immediately after Dolgo Brdo – it being a remnant of the glacial frontal moraine of the Bohinj glacier, which blocked the way of the Triglav and Radovna glaciers and redirected the flow of the ancient Radovna river to its current location – on the left, opposite the Mercator shop, we are greeted by a fairly large building called Emmaus.  The building used to be an inn, but today it is a holiday home owned by the Slovenian Association of Friends of Youth. The name Emmaus derives from the gospel; it is the name of the town that was one of the stops on Jesus’ journey from Nazareth to Jerusalem.

Immediately behind the building, on the left side, you will be greeted by another shrine, named the Volaj Shrine. It is painted with exquisite frescoes on biblical motives.
