Traditional Events

Magical Litija and the Sitarjevec mine

As part of the December events in Litija, which we named Magic Litija, there is also a wide area of events in and before the Sitarjevec mine. Events are well attended and attract more and more visitors every year. They are inviting the visitors with differentness and uniqueness, and some with nostalgia and a pleasant atmosphere.
