Orion's trail leads along the traces of ancient cultures through areas where was, according to priest Karel Gržan and his book V znamenju Oriona (In the Sign of Orion), once a megalithic temple, “the centre of the world” in a triangle between the Savinja, Sava and Sotla rivers. Numerous ancient sites that were mostly unknown up to the present time (a couple of hundred metres long walls, ruins of settlements) and precisely follow the arrangement of stars clearly support this thesis.
