About Medvode, our home town
Medvode is a town 12 km far from the centre of the capital Ljubljana, where there is the confluence of the river Sava and the Sora at the south – east edge of the Sorica field.
Medvode lies between the two rivers that’s why it got that name (Medvode – between water). It’s also surrounded by nice peaks and the Alps at the back.
