The Greatest Escape

Relive The Greatest Escape. Join the first-ever recreation of The Greatest Escape in the history of WW2.

Travel through the heart of Slovenia to mark the historic 75th anniversary of The Crow’s Flight.

Descendants will relive their ancestors’ 1944 escape across the mountains of Slovenia and all trekkers are invited to join this momentous 75th Anniversary march into history. The Crow’s Flight starts in medieval Maribor and finishes near the Croatian border.

It’s an exhilarating walking tour into the Greatest Escape of WW2, spectacular mountain scenery and historic villages experiencing the cuisine, wines and history of provincial Slovenia. Rolling hills, baroque churches, gourmet food and local spas. Experience it all while retracing the footsteps of the hundred or so prisoners of war who endured it all during the midst of WW2 and patrolling Nazi forces.
