We even bless motorcycles in Slovenia!

12 Jul 2019


In the Gorenjska region of Slovenia, we preserve the interesting tradition of blessing – with the addition that we also bless motor vehicles. 

Thus, in May we organised the 15th meeting of IPA Slovenia members, with the aim of blessing their motorcycles.

Priest Franc Juvan blessed about 50 vehicles and their owners from all over the country, which was followed by a ride through the beautiful countryside around the wonderful Zgornjesavska valley.

In amongst around 100 participants, we also welcomed our colleagues from abroad - including representatives of the Austrian and Croatian police. The fact that many motorists return each year proves that the event is very well organised.

It is one of the ways the members of the IPA Club Gorenjska are able to assist in the promotion of our region, and we are certainly going to carry on the tradition.
