The view on Grmada

Grmada, also Grmada above Ortnek, is an 887 meters high viewpoint on the western side of Ribnica’s Mala gora. It is located above settlement Vrh pri Poljanah, to which an asphalt road leads. On the top, which is overgrown, stands RTV transmitter and tourist home from the year 1959. In good weather, a beautiful view opens, which reaches a major part of Lower Carniola. If we take a walk around the top, we can also see Snežnik, Julian Alps, Karavanke and Kamnik-Savinja Alps. In a time of the Turkish invasions, bonfires were lit to inform the inhabitants, that the Turkish threat was coming. Ribnica mountain path goes over the top of Grmada.
