The path leads through eleven thematic sections and milestones of Slovene mountaineering, alpine climbing, and the mountain rescue service, illuminating the various motives which have inspired people to enter the mountain world since prehistoric times.

Each path has its own story 4 by Kati ŽvanSlovenian Alpine Museum

The museum narrates the story of Slovene mountaineering, strongly associated with patriotism. 

It follows the development of Slovene organised mountaineering and first climbing aspirations, all the way to the modern-day world famous climbing achievements of Slovene climbers at home and abroad.
