Is the bridge stable? Like stone and bone. Can our army pass through? Yes, but the last soldier must stay with us! (Nursery rhyme)
Over the hanging bridge across the Sava River used to walk the naked feet of boys from Javornik on adventures to Poljane. Tired, they climbed high up the mountain. And then – they saw a girl in the middle of a beechwood. One single stone heart ...
The mountain trembled, there was thunder between the rivers, across the field. People listened. Then it fell. And so we have it. A miracle from a different world. Here, on Mežakla.
