Muta: Ecological Chapel

Print Add to travel planner
The Ecological chapel built in 1997 and dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, protects and notifies the inhabitants there of the dam Golica/Koralpe, built on the other side of the national border in Austria, in the municipality of Soboth. The chapel serves as a symbol and draws attention to the danger facing the Bistrica Valley – of the wave of water, held behind the dam that would flood the valley, if the dam broke.  There are about 22 million cubic meters of water in the man-made lake. In 1998 the first ecological pilgrimage in Slovenia was here, this being the only ecological chapel in the country. Next to the chapel there is a bridge across the Bistrica River, over which you can access Sedelnikov waterfall. From here it is an hour and a half walk along the marked mountain trail to St. Bartholomew's.
