Žiri – our town

Moto club Sairach is from Žiri. Town Žiri lies in the Žiri basin at the end of the Poljanska valley. Geographically, it is at the crossroads of three Slovenian regions: Gorenjska, Notranjska and Primorska. Žiri is 30 kilometres away from Škofja Loka (Gorenjska), and 15 kilometres from Idrija (Primorska). You have to drive 18 kilometres to Vrhnika, 22 kilometres to Logatec and just over 50 kilometres to Ljubljana. Town Žiri and the people who live here are marked by three main activities: agriculture, shoemaking and making bobbin lace. After the expansion of the industry, agriculture has become a supplementary activity. You can find more about the history of our city here.
