Begunje settlement lies on a peak below the Draga valley and at the crossroads of Dežela, Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Karavanke. The village was mentioned as early as the 11th century. The ruins of the former Devil's Castle (mentioned in written sources in 1185) also date from that time. Near the settlement is the archeological site of the Zijalka cave. In Begunje was the center of the Gorenjska estate of the Ortenburgians, who built the Kamen castle in the 12th century. In addition to historical sights, there are also pearls of nature, such as waterfalls (Blatnica, Luknja). Here is the starting point for hiking in the surrounding mountains, a hill with the church of St. Petra (839) west of the village is a popular take-off point for paragliders. From here there is a view of the Land, the plateau world of Jelovica, the Julian Alps with Triglav and the surrounding peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Karavanke. Church of St. Petra was built in the second half of the 15th century. The great attraction is a painting from the 16th century, which includes more than 80 preserved scenes from the Passion, the life of Jesus and the legend of St. Petra. At the time of the Turkish invasions, there was a signal post here. The parish church of St. Urha is first mentioned in 1403, and the refugee mansion - Katzenstein was mentioned as early as 1537. The sad past of II. World War II replaced the economic boom and ‘gifted’ the world-renowned ELAN brand. The world-famous ensemble of the Avsenik brothers also originates from this place. Chapel of St. Jožefa was built in 1940 according to the plans of the architect Jože Plečnik.
