A number of pilgrimage trails run across Slovenia, connecting major centres of pilgrimage. The most famous of these are the Basilica of Mary, Help of Christians in Brezje
, Ptujska Gora
and Sveta Gora
above Solkan. The trails past these centres have grown more popular in recent years, having been incorporated into hiking trails or heritage trails
. One such trail is the Hemma Pilgrimage Trail
, named after St Hemma or Emma of Gurk. The trail continues into Austria. Two other trails, the Marian Pilgrimage Trail
and the St Martin Trail
, entering Slovenia from Austria and Hungary respectively, are gradually being developed.
