The Slovenian section of the E7 is called Naprudnik`s Trail (Naprudnikova pot) and it runs from Soča river to the Drava river. It is named after the late teacher of Slavic studies Zoran Naprudnik, a very hard-working social worker, active in sports and tourism. The route is marked from the west to the east of Slovenia. The most mountainous part is at the beginning of the trail and rises highest on Porezen at 1630 m above the sea level. The trail crosses the Soča valley, from where it heads towards the hills of Loka and Polhov Gradec and further towards Dolenjska, Posavje and Kozjansko region and then continues to Pannonian part of Slovenia and Hungary.

Suitable and comfortable footwear, shoes with good ankle support and a profiled, stiff sole, you should have warm spare clothes in your backpack – anorak, cap, gloves, long-sleeved T-shirt – which will be useful in case of a sudden change in the weather. Also do not forget first aid, a headlamp, matches and a candle, an astronaut foil that helps to store a lot of body heat, a mobile phone with a full battery, sunscreen and sunglasses.
