All about Zasip
The village of Zasip is located close to Bled and counts just over 1000 residents. Until 1973, Zasip was part of the District Municipality of Bled, formerly governed by the Municipality of Radovljica. Today, Zasip is a well organised and operated local community that constitutes one of the five local communities of the Municipality of Bled. Zasip takes pride in its diverse cultural and sports associations, an indispensable fire brigade, and other active local societies.
The local community was founded so that locals could better influence the development of their home village and improve the quality of village life. The community members have been successfully fulfilling their mission ever since. In 1978, the former Socialist Alliance of Working People of Yugoslavia in Belgrade presented Zasip with the highest-ranking award for the best kept local community in Slovenia. The local efforts towards the beautification and successful operation of the community have only increased with time, which is particularly evident from the number of active village voluntary organisations, whose members are the driving force of the village’s development and life.
Each year, on August 5th, the villagers of Zasip commemorate one of the first anti-Nazi sabotage acts in the Gorenjska region. In 1941, three young Zasip activists blasted the pipeline of the Piškovca power station in Zasip to temporarily disable electricity generation for the Jesenice Ironworks, which had been taken over by the German occupying forces. The local holiday is accompanied by various festivities and events organised by all the village societies. Zasip Local Community is today made up of nine actively involved local organisations.
