'Path of Memories and Camaraderie' in Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia is a 32.5 km long walkway, making a full circle around the city.
P.M.C. is laid along lines of the former barbwire that used to surround the city during the World War 2, from 1942 through 1945.
There are 102 monument stones along its way and 6 memorials which stand in the place where military checkpoints of the occupying armies used to be; first Mussolini's and after Italian's capitulation, Hitler's armies.

88 trees have been planted in many places along the path's way to mark the memory of the President Tito who lived for 88 years.
Ljubljana holds a special place among the European capitals; the barbwire that Italian army pulled around the city, turned it effectively into a concentration camp for 1171 days. There were many secret passage that allowed the members of the resistance to smuggle goods and its wounded fighters in and out of the city.
Ljubljana was a symbol of resistance and uprising against the Fascist armies.
During the warmer seasons, P.M.C. is a favourite place for Ljubljana's lovers of long walks, joggers, cyclers. During the winter, it turns into a fantastic cross-country skiing destination.
