About 2 km before Sopot, six entrances to Matjaž's chambers open in a rock wall above the left bank of the Sora River. These are the remains of a once active water cave dug by the Sora River. The entrances to the cave are in a vertical, almost 100 m high rock. The lower part of the cave with a length of 400 m is accessible through a difficult passage from the entrance cave. Matjaž's chambers are a real labyrinth of tunnels on several floors, with stalactites and stalagmites on the walls. The length of all tunnels is about 500 m. In addition to the remains of archeological excavations (stone tools of Ice Age hunters), the remains of Ice Age fauna were also found there.

The ruins of a former baroque mansion rise above the gorge of the river Unica in the southern part of Planinsko polje. Hošperk Castle (Haasberg) was built in the early 17th century by the Eggenberg princes, at the foot of an old medieval castle that was destroyed by an earthquake. At that time, the manor was considered the most powerful Baroque mansion in Slovenia. It was famous for its rich interior design and beautiful park, which is unfortunately only partially preserved today. The last owner of the manor was the Windischgrätz family, who bought it in 1846. During World War II, the nobles emigrated to Italy, the castle was first inhabited by the Italian, then the German army, and in 1944 it was burned down. Valuable interior furnishings, the family archives and the family tomb of the last owners of the Windischgrätz family mansion were completely destroyed. Across the road, in the immediate vicinity of the castle, you can still see the old castle barn and the magical grassy courtyard surrounded by walls with an event space, which also houses a small ethnological collection with various objects found at this location.

Planinsko polje is one of the typical karst fields formed in the Notranjska valley. It covers an area of ​​about 11 km² and connects the municipalities of Logatec, Postojna and Cerknica. Its fairly flat bottom is exposed to the occasional flooding of the Unica River, which flows daily from Planinska jama and slowly winds to sinkholes on the other side of the field. The river occasionally crosses the banks, floods meadows and fields, and during major floods also the road that connects the villages on both sides of the field. Due to its seasonally changing image, Planinsko polje is interesting for everyone who likes to go into nature. The most popular forms of recreation are walking, running, cycling, horseback riding and in winter also skating. Unica offers many water sports, including swimming, fishing and boating during floods. Here is the most northwestern habitat of the meadow blue onion (Scilla litardierei), which is endemic to the Dinaric karst fields. Otherwise, they nest here: corncrake (Crex crex), colorful foxglove (Sylvia nisoria), brown shrike (Lanius collurio) and waterfowl (Alcedo atthis). Roads and paths are now raised and transportable during minor floods, and in the past, people could only be transported from settlement to settlement by boat during floods.

Planinska jama (sometimes Malograjska jama) is located on the southern edge of Planinsko polje, in the immediate vicinity of Ravbarjev stolp. It consists of various halls, many beautiful lakes and stalactites. The cave is almost seven kilometers long and is considered the largest water cave in Slovenia. It's other important feature is one of the largest confluences of underground rivers in Europe. Here, the river Rak, which flows from Rakov Škocjan, and the river Pivka, which flows from Postojna Cave, merge into the river Unica. The mountain cave is characterized by exceptional biodiversity. In addition to 60 species of aquatic animals, there are also 40 species of terrestrial animals. Among them, the most famous endemic is the human fish, which you can see in the Planinska jama "little sea". The water system of Planinska jama is home to the largest population of human fish in Slovenia. The tour of the Planina Cave is organized with the help of halogen lamps. You can choose between a classic one-hour tour and a boat tour, which lasts 4-5 hours and is possible at low water levels.

Wild Lake (Divje jezero) is a karst siphon lake located about 2 km south of Idrija. The lake lies under the hundred-meter precipice walls that border this northern edge of the Črnovska plateau. Divje jezero is also a spring source, as water flows into the lake from a steeply descending tunnel, which has so far been explored to a depth of 160 m. The Jezernica River flows from this source, which is also the shortest surface-flowing river in Slovenia and flows into the Idrijca River after 55 meters. Type of karst spring - the Vokli spring is named after the Fontaine-de-Vaucluse spring in the province of Vaucluse in Provence in the south of France, 25 east of Avignon. Springs of this type are characterized by the fact that water from great depths flows under pressure through steep channels to the surface. As a curiosity: the water temperature in the Wild Lake fluctuates only between 7 and 10 C ° throughout the year. The lake was protected as a natural monument in 1967 and since 1972 it has been arranged for a visit as the first Slovenian museum in nature.

Nature has generously spent its beauties here. Already in the Strug gorge, at the entrance to the Zgornja Idrijca Landscape Park, at the foot of the steep karst walls, she laid the emerald Wild Lake, which is three in one: a cave, a spring and a lake at the same time. The shortest Slovenian surface river, the Jezernica, flows out of it, the only Slovenian river and one of the few in the world that - although under very special conditions, but can also flow the other way around - from its outflow to its source. The Strug climbing area, suspension bridges over the Idrijca, at the confluence of the Idrijca and Belca rivers, the popular and overcrowded Lajšt natural swimming pool in summer, and just a stone's throw away are the "Slovenian pyramids" and numerous cycling and walking trails through the heart of the landscape park.

Lake Cerknica covers 26 km2 and we will experience it best if we surround it with a bicycle. For the youngest ones, a visit to the craters of Lake Cerknica will suffice. Let's start in the village of Dolenje jezero, where the local Vekoslav Kebe arranged the Museum of Cerknica Lake. The operation of the lake's water system will be shown on live models, and we can also watch a multivision about the lake and learn about life along it over time. To see the gullets in the dry season, go from the above-mentioned parking lot in the direction of the lake. We turn right onto the first cart track, which soon leads us to a “moon” furrowed landscape where water is disappearing. In the southern part of the lake is an interesting island on which stands the village of the same name. The phenomenon of the intermittent Lake Cerknica is famous around the world as a place where they can graze livestock, plow fields and fish and ride boats in the same place. When the lake is full, it represents the largest lake area in Sloveni, and then dries up and reveals its extensive agricultural areas. Throughout the seasons, it shows completely different faces, and in order to really feel what Lake Cerknica is, we have to return here several times, at different times of the year. We can see the lake from several angles, but I suggest we start in the village of Dolenje jezero, where the locals have arranged a museum about their world-class landmark.

Enter the world of history. Admire the beauty of the castle, which has defied centuries, and take a walk through the museum, which celebrates both the past and progress and modernization. The Bistra Carthusian Monastery was founded in 1255 as the first Carthusian monastery in Carniola and, in addition to the Žička Carthusian Monastery, the Jurklošter Carthusian Monastery and the Pleterje Carthusian Monastery, is one of four carthusians in Slovenia. At first it was called "Vesela dolina" or in German also Freudental, later after the nearby Borovnica, and at the end of the 15th century the name Bistra appeared. The first half of the 14th century represents the peak of the monastery's activity, when the Carthusian monastery also expanded greatly and invested in the operation of the monastery library, where many transcripts and original works were created. Later, the slow decline of the monastery began, which was repeatedly affected by fires, and in 1670 also by a strong earthquake. The final demise for the monastery was the decree of Emperor Joseph II. on the dissolution of all monasteries which did not contribute to the welfare of the state. The estate was then divided into several parts - it was partly confiscated, partly passed into the hands of the Church, and partly sold. Today's castle image was given to the estate after many alterations in the middle of the 19th century, when it became the property of the Galle family. The estate was nationalized in 1945, and since 1951 the Technical Museum of Slovenia has been housed in the castle, which is also a cultural monument of national importance.

Despite the fact that Nanos (Pleša 1262 m) does not even boast an above-average altitude, it is a popular mountain destination for many hikers, especially in late autumn and early spring. It is true that Pleša is a distinct peak of Nanos: from here, in good weather, the view opens to almost the whole of southwestern Slovenia, even to Friuli and towards Venice. But the Nanon massif, which covers about 65 km2, is more than just Pleša (bald head). It is an unspoilt plateau, rich in fauna and flora and cultural and natural heritage, which has been protected since 1987 as a landscape park - the southern and western slopes of Nanos in the area of ​​2632 ha.

Rakov Škocjan is a beautiful karst valley between Cerknica and Planinsko polje. It was formed by the river Rak, which originates from the Zelška Caves, flows along the surface for half a third of a kilometer and then disappears again in Tkalca Cave. The whole area is full of karst phenomena, and a nature study trail is arranged along the valley, which takes us through a unique natural environment. The highlight of the visit is a tour of the Big and Small Natural Bridges. Rakov Škocjan has been declared a landscape park. The river Rak flows daily on the eastern edge of the valley from the Zelška Caves and brings water from Lake Cerknica. At its "source" rise the high walls of the former cave, whose ceiling collapsed, leaving an impressive Little Natural Bridge. The learning path (marked with blue-red markings) leads us to the top of the bridge and if the water level allows, we can descend completely to the water or. to the entrance to the Zelška Caves. The view of the mighty walls is fantastic. The cancer immediately subsides again and a few hundred meters lower it comes to the surface again. Between the Small Natural Bridge and the hotel there is a learning footpath on the right side of the valley (seen in the direction of the river), and near the hotel we cross a wooden bridge and continue on the left bank. In this part, the valley widens and the Rak flows peacefully along the marshy meadows. Numerous karst streams flow into it all the time, the sources of which can be seen. At the western end of Rakov Škocjan, nature becomes wilder again: the rocky mass of the Great Natural Bridge, high walls and the dark Tkalca Cave, into which we can descend (steel cable) and observe how Rak drains underground and continues its way towards Planinsko polje. There is a road through Rakov Škocjan and among the main attractions you can also drive by car, but we will experience the beautiful nature on foot. For the entire route (from the Small to the Big Natural Bridge and back), book at least 3 hours. A very nice trip for all nature lovers.

Piran is an old port city in Slovenian Istria. The city is bilingual, Italian and Slovenian. The Italian name is Pirano. It is located on the cape of the Piran peninsula. The place has preserved its medieval appearance with narrow streets and closely built houses, which give it a typical Mediterranean character and a special charm. On the hill above the houses stands the Church of St. George with a high tower, and in it are many paintings and works of art. Piran has been inhabited since Roman times. Between 1909 and 1953 it was connected to Portorož and Lucija by electric railway. Today, Piran is an administrative and tourist center that attracts domestic and foreign visitors. The biggest attractions in Piran are Tartini Square, the City Palace, the Tartini Monument, the Tartini House, special stone flagpoles, the Court Palace, the 1st of May Square, also known as the Old Square, and the old city walls consisting of three walls from different periods. . In the center of the city is the aquarium, which was established in 1964. The promenade runs along the coast and offers many restaurants with a variety of local food and drinks. Church of St. Jurija is an extraordinary viewpoint of the old town and the Gulf of Trieste. It was built in 1638 on the site of a Romanesque basilica and a Gothic three-nave church. A bell tower rises independently next to the church. It was built in 1609 on the model of the bell tower of St. Mark in Venice. Tartini Square was originally a sea bay for fishing boats. It was buried in 1894. In the middle of the square stands a bronze monument to Giuseppe Tartini, a famous Piran compatriot, composer, violinist and music pedagogue. The Church of Mary of the Snows is located along Bolniška Street. It was built in 1404 and rebuilt in the Baroque style in the 17th century. Opposite the church stands the church of St. Francis with the monastery. The monastery cross corridor with a portal is an exceptional work from the 17th century. The narrow streets in Piran prevent car traffic and because of this there are parking lots in front of the city. Piran, Seča and Portorož are connected by a regular local bus route. The newer part of the city developed outside the city walls along the coast towards Portorož.

Triglav is a 2864 m high mountain located in the heart of the Julian Alps. With the mentioned height, Triglav is the highest mountain in the territory of Slovenia, and at the same time it is also the highest mountain in the Julian Alps. At the top stands the Aljaž Tower, which was erected in 1895 by Jakob Aljaž, the then parish priest in Dovje. In the case of a storm, up to 5 people can cheer in the Aljaž Tower. Today, the Aljaž Tower is protected as a cultural monument and as such is very important in preserving cultural heritage. Triglav made its first visit on August 26, 1778, when four men of heart climbed to the top, whose monument stands in Bohinj. Otherwise, a beautiful view opens up from the top of Triglav, stretching all the way from the Adriatic Sea, through the Dolomites and High Tur to the Karavanke, Kamnik-Savinja Alps, Pohorje, through almost all of Slovenia to the highest peaks of the Julian Alps.

The romantic Snežnik Castle in the Notranjska region is one of two in Slovenia with preserved authentic interiors from the second half of the 19th century. A walk through the four floors of the castle conjures up an atmosphere from one hundred and fifty years ago, as the castle rooms are still furnished with authentic furniture and other equipment from the second half of the 19th century. The lounges and bedrooms of Princes Herman and Ulrik, Princess Anne and the guest rooms are pleasantly and comfortably decorated, filled with many historic sofas with original upholstery and ornamented stoves. The walls are adorned with family portraits, old photographs and graphics. A special feature is an Egyptian-style room from the early 20th century. Piano, billiards and a theater corner contributed to the homely atmosphere of the holiday home. Over time, many hunting trophies have accumulated in the castle, including a stuffed bear that has been at the castle for over a hundred years. The rooms in the vestibule are intended for occasional exhibitions, and on the ground floor there is a wedding hall. The ancient castle in beautiful nature offers pleasant and educational entertainment for the whole day.

Slovenia's capital and largest city is one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals; it was the European Commission's Green Capital of Europe in 2016. Car traffic is restricted in the center, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city's heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party. Slovenia's master of early-modern, minimalist design, Jože Plečnik, graced Ljubljana with beautiful bridges and buildings as well as dozens of urban design elements such as pillars, pyramids and lamp posts, which exist solely to make the city even prettier. Attractive cities are often described as 'jewel boxes', and here the name really fits. Some 50,000 students support an active clubbing scene, and Ljubljana's museums and restaurants are among the best in the country.

Lake Bohinj and its surroundings are one of the main natural pearls of Slovenia. It lies inside the Triglav National Park in the embrace of the beautiful Julian Alps. The crystal clear water offers bathing pleasures between June and September, but the surroundings of the lake attract fans of various sports activities and pristine nature throughout the year. The range of activities offered by Bohinj is really wide. Air, rock, water, earth, underground or snow? You will not be bored in Bohinj ... Here you will definitely change your holiday plans and stay longer. Lake Bohinj is the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia (Lake Cerknica surpasses it in size when it is full). It is of glacial-tectonic origin and measures about 4 km in length and a good kilometer in width. At the western end, cold water flows into it from the Savica waterfall, and at the eastern edge (under the bridge next to the church of St. John the Baptist) the river Jezernica flows out, which soon flows into the Sava Bohinjka. It lies at the end of a blind valley, closed on three sides by steep forested slopes, and to the east it is “guarded” by the rocky masses of Studor and Rudnica. The lake warms up in the summer and in June it starts to attract more and more bathers, who are usually driven away only by the September weather. The most popular bathing locations are at the western (Ukanc) and especially at the eastern end of the lake (near Stara Fužina and Ribčev Laz). The road runs along the southern edge of the lake, and on the northern side, where there is only a footpath, the coves are much more secluded and romantic. Nature is beautiful no matter the time of year. The lake is surrounded by vast forests, which hide unique waterfalls and gorges, and above them we will climb past the traditional mountains to fantastic viewpoints and into the rocky embrace of our highest peaks. Some routes are quite popular, but without excessive effort we can enter corners where we will be accompanied only by birds, chamois and clean air. Hikers, hikers, mountaineers, climbers, cyclists, paragliders, fishermen, horsemen, water sports enthusiasts, cavers, skiers, touring skiers and cross-country skiers - Bohinj will not disappoint you!

One of the most beautiful European rivers is an important natural value of the Triglav National Park. It is famous for its distinctive emerald color and vibrant rapids in the upper stream. The Soča River is a 137 km long alpine river with a mysterious karst source in Trenta, at the foot of the mighty Julian Alps. The Soča is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts, especially kayakers, fishermen, photographers and those looking for relaxation in nature. One of the most popular experiences is rafting on the Soča River, organized by more than 30 sports agencies in the Soča Valley. The Soča River has been the scene of major international kayak competitions on several occasions in the past decades. In 2007, Disney filmed some scenes from the film Stories from Narnia: Prince Caspian on its rapids. Due to its exceptional blue-green color, it was justifiably given another name, the emerald river.

The Sečovlje salt pans, together with their relatives in Strunjan, are one of the last salt pans in the Mediterranean, where salt is obtained by hand using a method that is hundreds of years old. The traditional, nature- and human-friendly method of salt production has, over time, enabled the development of special living environments in and around salt basins. In the Sečovlje salt pans, nature and man live hand in hand. Traditional salt pickingDwelling of 296 species of birdsFontanigge - abandoned part of the salt pansThematic trail on LeraPaying down saltworks houseSolina fields Salt pans may have formed on the alluvium at the mouth of the Dragonja River as early as Roman times, and certainly in the Middle Ages. Soline was co-created by man in a thoughtful way over time. Traces of medieval saltworks are reminiscent of the remains of former saltworks houses in the southern part of the park called Fontanigge. Salt harvesting was stopped here in the mid-1960s. In Lera, the northern part of the salt pans, however, salt production was never interrupted. The work of the saltworkers is a living masterpiece of knowledge and preserves only slightly updated medieval patterns and methods. Large and shallow bodies of water sheltered by the sub-Mediterranean climate have always been full of life. Not only salt pans, but also animals and plants adapted to the salty environment. Among the latter, a special feature is the salt-loving plant or saltwort. It is characteristic of many of them that in autumn, when all the nitrogen is depleted from nutrient-poor soils, they turn red. Of the animal species, the salt pans habitat is a real paradise for birds. Various biotopes have been formed in the maintained embankments, offering birds as accommodation or wintering grounds. So far, as many as 296 species have been listed. Saltwater canals and puddles are characterized by saltwater fish, and in summer we can come across a small, a good centimeter-sized red-colored saltwater crab.

200 m north of Planinsko polje is a mighty landslide, which is 90 m long and up to 60 m wide. The bottom of the landslide is sloping to the south, where under a picturesque wall is a huge entrance to the 326 m long and 90 m deep Vranje Cave. From the entrance, the Great Tunnel descends to the south, which splits into three tunnels behind the entrance hall. The highest Dry Blind Stalactite Trench is directed towards the southeast, the middle Federal Trench continues to the south and leads to the Cold Cave over a 6 m high level. The lowest, southwestern Water Tunnel is very muddy and ends with a siphon in which there are Easter eggs and proteuses. Along the high water, the entire Water Tunnel is flooded. Water also rises into the entrance hall, so that the proteuses are sometimes visible even in daylight. The cold cave is the fossil abyss of the Vranje cave. It is named after the cold air that usually blows out of it, gets caught in a landslide in front of Vranja jama and flows through the Zvezni rov into Mrzla jama, where there are many ice stalactites in winter.

Škocjan Caves Park is located in the extreme southeastern part of the main karst, near Divača. The Škocjan Caves web consists of numerous caves and tunnels, landslides, natural bridges and sinks. It was created by the river Reka, which, after a 50 km long surface flow, disappears into the karst underground and reappears on the surface in springs along the Gulf of Trieste. Its underground gorge of exceptional dimensions represents the most recognizable part of the Škocjan Caves. This mysterious world has attracted people since ancient times. There are many important archeological sites in the Regional Park, which indicate that this area was inhabited several thousand years BC. Numerous and valuable finds from various historical periods testify to spiritual rites and the use of caves as shrines.

The Ljubljanica River has a special place among Slovenian rivers. It is fed by many karst sinking waters in the hinterland, which is why it is also called the river of seven names. Her journey is long and exciting. It disappears several times and reappears on the surface, but always under a different name. First, at its first spring below Snežnik, it is called Trbuhovica, then Obrh, then Stržen, Rak, Pivka, Unica, until at several springs in Vrhnika and its surroundings, after a long journey through the karst underground, it comes to light as the Ljubljanica. Its sources are divided into three major groups: Močilnik, Retovje and Bistro. In addition to these, there are an even greater number of springs, wells and tributaries. In Močilnik, a distinct gabled valley, the springs of Veliki and Mali Močilnik flow into Mala Ljubljanica. Not far from the restaurant, under the high precipices (40 m), also called the Devil's Rocks, Veliki Močilnik boils on the day. According to legend, the voyage of Greek heroes - Jason and Argonauts on the Ljubljanica - ended here. At this point, the ship was dismantled and carried on its shoulders towards the Adriatic Sea. Vrhnika is remembered by the Argonauts every year during the Argonaut Days festival.

The Franja Partisan Hospital is a unique monument to humanity, camaraderie and solidarity from the Second World War. It operated as an illegal hospital in the hard-to-reach Pasice gorge in Dolenje Novaki near Cerkno between December 1943 and May 1945. Most of the time it was run by doctor Franja Bojc Bidovec, after whom the hospital was named during the war. In addition to the staff, the successful operation of the hospital was also due to the surrounding residents, who helped build the barracks, hid the wounded at home and collected food, medicine and other materials for them. After the war, Franja Hospital became a symbol of Slovene partisan health care and care for the wounded, helpless and in need of help.

The Pivka basin has been especially beautifully endowed by nature. The karst fields are full of springs and springs that fill the lakes during heavy rains, and remain only part of the year. In summer, when there is no water, the lakes become colorful meadows with rich vegetation that has adapted to these conditions. The intermittent lakes of Pivka are distributed throughout the Pivka basin. At an air length of 15 kilometers, we find as many as 17, which is unique in the whole of Europe. We find very large as well as small. Some have a higher altitude, some are filled only during heavy rains, ... They start with the northernmost lake called Jeredovce and end in the south with Šembijski Lake. At the foot of Okroglek lies the Petelinje Lake in an oval depression, with a bottom at 532 m above sea level. This is the lowest lying lake, so the water stays in it the longest, even up to 6 months. The water rises to the surface in the southern part and sinks in the southern and northern huts. From there, the water goes underground to Žejske izvire and further to the river Pivka. When the lake dries up, the springs also dry up. The depth of the lake reaches an average of 12 meters and covers an area of ​​0.74 km2, which ranks it second in size among the Pivka intermittent lakes.

The Mali Plac Nature Reserve is located in the solitary Kostanjevica near the village of Bevke and is the southernmost remnant of a peat moss high bog in Europe. Clay, organic sludge and peat towards the top have been deposited on the bottom for thousands of years. The basin of the lake lies ten meters above the surface of the moor and has never been connected to the rest of the moor. Many rare plants (medium sundew, round-leaved sundew, hairy moss, common rosemary) and animals (marsh tortoise, navels, dragonflies, various species of frogs, rare species of wetland birds and predators) live on Mali plac. It is interesting that the Ljubljana Marshes occupy less than 1% of the surface of Slovenia, but over 100 species of birds nest here, which is half of all birds in Slovenia. We can observe 48 species of dragonflies and as many as 89 species of butterflies.

Many rare plants (medium sundew, round-leaved sundew, hairy moss, common rosemary) and animals (marsh tortoise, navels, dragonflies, various species of frogs, rare species of wetland birds and predators) live on Mali plac. It is interesting that the Ljubljana Marshes occupy less than 1% of the surface of Slovenia, but over 100 species of birds nest here, which is half of all birds in Slovenia. We can observe 48 species of dragonflies and as many as 89 species of butterflies.

The Unška Koliševka is one of the collapsing valleys created by the collapse of the ceiling of the underground cave. Such valleys are characterized by steep walls and the bottom is difficult to access. The Unška koliševka, in contrast to the koliševka, which can be found in Rakov Škocjan, for example, hides another interesting fact. It is surrounded by military trenches and bunkers built by Italian soldiers during the two world wars. A small part of these tunnels with a total length of about 1.5 km is still accessible.

Velika planina is one of the few still functioning high mountain pastoral settlements in Europe. On it you can still meet the traditional culture of the local shepherds. This picturesque plateau in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps is also famous for its exceptional natural beauty and is interspersed with many hiking trails. Its image is characterized by extensive pastures and many karst features such as sinkholes and basins. A cable car rides to Velika planina every day of the year. The lower station of the cable car is in the Kamniška Bistrica Valley, next to Camp Alpe, and the upper one is in Šimnovec, near the Skodla Refreshment Center. You can also climb it on foot, along a number of popular mountain trails. Velika planina is a popular excursion destination especially in summer, but it is also beautiful in winter when it is snowy. Shepherds on Velika Planina drive cows to the plateau in mid-June, and then spend the warmer months caring for livestock. They live in typical "shepherd's cottages", which are covered with typical spruce shingles. In the shepherd's settlement you can visit the museum collection in Preskar's cottage (open from June to September). You can occasionally buy dairy products in pastoral homesteads, among them the famous trnič cheese. Among the sights of the settlement is also the chapel of Marija Snežna. On Velika planina you can try a traditional shepherd's snack - sour milk and porridge. The Zeleni Rob inn, which is the starting point for walks to the shepherd's settlement, is known for its excellent cheese štruklji. Domžalska, Jarška and Črnuški dom on Mala Planina and Dom na Kisovecu also offer a selection of mountain dishes, especially stews.

Picturesque Škofja Loka, which flourishes at the confluence of Poljanska and Selška Sora, at the transition from Sorško polje to the vibrant world of the Škofja Loka and Polhov Gradec hills, is the best preserved medieval town in Slovenia and the economic, cultural, educational and administrative center of Škofja Loka. Archaeological finds show that the territory of Škofja Loka has been inhabited since the Copper Age (4th and 3rd millennium BC). At the time of the great migration of peoples, Slavic life settled here, as the names of the settlements bore Slavic names even before the territory was granted to the Freising bishops. The history of the city begins in 973, when Emperor Otto II. donated the territory of Loka to Bishop Abraham of Freising in Bavaria. However, Loka, named in the deed of gift, is not today's Škofja Loka, but Stara Loka. At the confluence of the Selška and Poljanska Sora rivers, the settlement of Loka began to develop in the Middle Ages (the name denotes the grassy world by the water). The bishops of Freising later renamed the administrative and economic center of the Loka lordship to Škofja Loka (Bischoflack). In a document from 1274, the settlement is named as a town. For greater security, in the early 14th century. protected by a wall, through which led five gates, secured by watchtowers and largely preserved to this day. The city has experienced attacks, plagues, fires and earthquakes in its history. The worst severely damaged the city in 1511, which was soon rebuilt by Bishop Philip. Since then, the image of Škofja Loka has changed little, so it is considered the best preserved medieval town in Slovenia. The old town center is formed by the Upper Town Square or Plac and the Lower Square or Lontrg, which are dominated by Škofja Loka Castle. The population of the town and its surroundings were engaged in many crafts, from which strong craft associations - guilds - developed towards the end of the Middle Ages. Many renowned artists, writers and scientists have always worked in the naturally and artistically rich environment, creating the rich cultural heritage of Škofja Loka.

Idrija lies in the northwestern part of Slovenia, at the crossroads of the pre-Alpine and Dinaric worlds. The surroundings of Idrija were a very sparsely populated landscape due to the varied surface, poor natural possibilities and remote location. For the wider surroundings of Idrija, the time of settlement cannot be precisely dated, but it is clear that stronger immigration to this area began only with the discovery of mercury in the Idrija basin. At the end of the 15th century, at least according to the legend, a cupbearer discovered mercury in the area of ​​today's Idrija. This, in turn, was of great economic, developmental and settlement importance. The mine in Idrija was expanding rapidly and gaining in importance, and at the same time Idrija was growing. While working distinctly masculinely in the mine, the women developed their handicrafts and cuisine at home. Today, in addition to the mine, Idrija lace and Idrija žlikrofi are also world-famous, which are also European protected. Geopark Idrija, which due to its exceptional natural heritage is one of the most interesting parks in Europe, covers the entire area of ​​the municipality of Idrija. Idrija boasts the titles Alpine City of the Year 2011 and European Destination of Excellence for 2011 (EDEN). It is known for the second largest mercury mine in the world, just behind the Spanish Almaden. The rich heritage of both mines has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 30 June 2012.

The Vipavska Bela climbing area is located in the gorge of the Bela torrent stream. The stream flows through the village of Vrhpolje on the edge of the Vipava valley and then disappears on the gravel Vipava field. The torrential character of the stream is revealed during heavy rains. The gorge of the Bela stream has many rapids, pools and in certain areas very narrow troughs. Smoothly sanded walls are typical. Some pools are very deep, among them water falls in jumps that are up to three meters high. The top of the Vipavska Bela climbing area is accessible to visitors by car, as the regional road Vrhpolje - Sanabor is located in the immediate vicinity. The climbing area is very popular both among beginner climbers and among more experienced climbers, because it also has difficult routes up to 8 c / c +. Climbing routes are 5 to 20 meters high. Particularly attractive is the fact that in addition to the main wall, on which there are many routes, climbing areas are also run throughout the Bela valley, which offers a pleasant refreshment in the summer.

The Rilke Trail is a beautiful scenic walk that connects Sistiana to Duino, running alongside the Falesie di Duino Nature Reserve. The trail is named after the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who lived as a guest of the princesses Thurn and Taxis at Duino Castle. Rilke loved these places so much that he used them as inspiration for his Duino Elegies: "Being here is splendid", he wrote. And how can you say he was wrong? For those interested in studying, walking the Rilke Trail offers an opportunity to observe karstification phenomena at close quarters. Scenic stations have been created, taking advantage of military bunkers and foxholes from World War I and World War II. But the true glory is the splendid view of Sistiana Bay and the entire Gulf of Trieste, a view that should not be missed!

A few kilometers from Trieste, right on the border with Slovenia, in the municipality of San Dorligo della Valle (Dolina), the karst plateau is carved by a valley furrow. Val Rosandra (Dolina Glinščice), today a Nature Reserve, in the center of which flows the only surface water course of the Trieste Karst, the Rosandra (Glinščica) stream, which has always nourished its plants, has hosted its animals and represented an element of attraction for man and anthropic activities.Thanks to its rich natural heritage, Val Rosandra (Dolina Glinščice) has always been a destination for rock climbers, speleologists and scholars. But it is above all the locals who frequent it and live it, who have contributed to keeping the naturalistic and cultural heritage of this territory intact, finding in it a refuge in nature and a resource for local activities. Since 2006 the managing body of the Reserve has been the Municipality of San Dorligo della Valle (Občina Dolina).

The medieval village is a pearl of Karst architecture and culture. Štanjel, which is one of the oldest settlements in the Karst, first enchants with its unique veduta. On the Turn hill there is a picturesque terraced village, which attracts the view with its famous buildings. Castle complex, defense towers, church of st. Danijela with a lemon bell tower, clustered houses and Ferrari's garden are the most recognizable architectural heritage of the old settlement, which has been changing its image for thousands of years and at the same time preserving the true soul of the Karst. The village, named after the patron saint of the church, St. Daniel, is in many ways a unique cultural monument. Due to its strategic location, Turn Hill has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Remains of a Roman fort called Gledanica have been preserved from antiquity, and a settlement of residential houses was built on the terraces in the Middle Ages. The place was first mentioned in writing in 1402. To defend against Turkish invasions, the settlement was surrounded by walls in the 15th century. Štanjel reached the peak of its development in the 16th and 17th centuries. The design of the settlement with narrow streets and most of the architectural features of the buildings originate from this time. In the period between the two world wars, the architect and then mayor Maks Fabiani left his mark on Štanjel. His twenty-year work in Štanjel includes numerous interventions that reflect the architect's vision. Far-sightedly and innovatively, he upgraded the existing space with solutions that adapted the old settlement to the needs of modern life. At the same time, he consistently preserved the spirit of the place, and visionarily intended new uses for the renovated buildings. Thanks to him, the castle became a place of social events. Already at that time, he was thinking about the accessibility of the settlement for car traffic, and he also tackled water supply, which is one of the main problems of karst settlements. Among the most important works of Fabiani in Štanjel are the renovation of the Ferrari villa and the design of the Ferrari garden with a park, which in Slovenia is considered to be the most important park arrangement from the time between the two world wars. During the Second World War, the settlement was partially burned and the castle was severely damaged. The revitalization of the old core and the restoration of the castle began in the 1960s and continues to this day. After the Second World War, a newer part of the settlement developed on the plain at the foot of the Turn hill. Today, Štanjel is an important cultural center of the Karst, which hosts many cultural and scientific events. The museum's collections are on display in the restored castle, and the Maks Fabiani exhibition is particularly interesting. The Lojze Spacal Gallery, the central temple of fine arts, which is also strongly represented in small galleries in Štanjel, also got its place in the castle.

The Borovnica Viaduct, also known as the Bridge, was a world-famous masterpiece and the largest building on the Vienna-Trieste route. The railway line from Ljubljana to Celje started in 1849. They wanted to take it to Trieste, but the biggest problem had to be overcome, the Ljubljana Marshes and the ascent to the Karst plateau. Its construction was entrusted to Carl Ritter von Ghegi, who already had experience in building railways. The 561-meter-long and 38-meter-high viaduct was in operation for seven years, from 1850 to 1856. The two-storey viaduct, which bridged the narrowest part of the Borovniška basin, had 25 arches on the upper floor and 22 arches on the lower floor. The construction itself took place with inhuman efforts and for the present time by rather primitive means. Nevertheless, the viaduct in 1856, when the first train passed over it, was a real technical and architectural masterpiece. As a curiosity - it was built without cement. On Easter Thursday, April 10, 1941, the old Yugoslav army demolished seven columns of the Borovnik Viaduct. The Italian army, which arrived in Borovnica on April 13, immediately set about building an iron bridge. The construction of the Roth-Waagner structure lasted until June 28, 1941, when the line was opened by the Italian Minister of Transport Giovanni Host-Venturi. December 1944 marked the end of traffic through the viaduct. It was badly damaged in a number of bombings from August to December 1944, and traffic was finally disrupted on December 27 when the bombs destroyed an iron bridge in the direction of the Old Station. When they withdrew from Borovnica, on the morning of May 5, 1945, the German pioneer division blew up the remains of the structure, trying to destroy Dolski and Jelenov or Valley Bridge, but they ran out of explosives. After the end of the Second World War, the people of Borovnica had to work hard. Many houses were demolished, families counted dead and wounded. They cleaned the remains of the viaduct, from which many houses grew, with which they filled a new line and lined and arranged the bank of the Sava in Belgrade. The mighty viaduct, which once aroused respect and admiration, is no more today. Only the 21st pillar from the Ljubljana direction reminds us of it. An error in the ignition of the explosive preserved it and in January 1992 it was declared a technical monument. Under the preserved pillar today stands a board with a description and model of the former bridge.

Its construction was entrusted to Carl Ritter von Ghegi, who already had experience in building railways. The 561-meter-long and 38-meter-high viaduct was in operation for seven years, from 1850 to 1856. The two-storey viaduct, which bridged the narrowest part of the Borovniška basin, had 25 arches on the upper floor and 22 arches on the lower floor. The construction itself took place with inhuman efforts and for the present time by rather primitive means. Nevertheless, the viaduct in 1856, when the first train passed over it, was a real technical and architectural masterpiece. As a curiosity - it was built without cement. On Easter Thursday, April 10, 1941, the old Yugoslav army demolished seven columns of the Borovnik Viaduct. The Italian army, which arrived in Borovnica on April 13, immediately set about building an iron bridge. The construction of the Roth-Waagner structure lasted until June 28, 1941, when the line was opened by the Italian Minister of Transport Giovanni Host-Venturi. December 1944 marked the end of traffic through the viaduct. It was badly damaged in a number of bombings from August to December 1944, and traffic was finally disrupted on December 27 when the bombs destroyed an iron bridge in the direction of the Old Station. When they withdrew from Borovnica, on the morning of May 5, 1945, the German pioneer division blew up the remains of the structure, trying to destroy Dolski and Jelenov or Valley Bridge, but they ran out of explosives. After the end of the Second World War, the people of Borovnica had to work hard. Many houses were demolished, families counted dead and wounded. They cleaned the remains of the viaduct, from which many houses grew, with which they filled a new line and lined and arranged the bank of the Sava in Belgrade. The mighty viaduct, which once aroused respect and admiration, is no more today. Only the 21st pillar from the Ljubljana direction reminds us of it. An error in the ignition of the explosive preserved it and in January 1992 it was declared a technical monument. Under the preserved pillar today stands a board with a description and model of the former bridge.

On its way to the Sava, the Radovna River carved a deep gorge, which is today one of the most popular excursion points in the immediate vicinity of Bled. The Vintgar Gorge is half a second kilometer long, up to 100 meters deep, and its walls narrow in places. We walk through nice wooden galleries, just a few meters above the water. Extremely pleasant refreshment in the summer heat.

On the edge of Hrastovelj, between vineyards and olive groves, you will notice a stone wall above which the bell tower of the church of Sv. Three. The church was built in the 15th century, and about 100 years later a wall with two defensive towers was erected to defend it against the Turks. The architecture of the church is very interesting, both the walls and the roof are made of stone. The church itself is quite small, but inside it boasts the largest and best-preserved wall paintings in our country. The painter Janez from Kastav and his team painted the entire interior (walls, arches and ceilings) and finished his work in 1490. The frescoes are earthy, the motifs are mostly ecclesiastical and depict the apostles, the coronation of Mary, the three holy kings, the Way of the Cross, creation world, and the most famous is of course the "Dance of the Dead". It is a procession of various people from the society of that time, who, together with the skeletons, are marching towards death. The motif is said to originate from plague epidemics and communicates that death does not choose between rich and poor, young and old, nor can bribery (if you look closely, you will see that someone is offering gold coins to the skeleton).

Rupnik's line reveals an interesting history. Are you interested in her story? Take carefully selected and educational trails with stunning panoramic views. Trails and paths lead along the defensive line, along which stand forts and bunkers built between the two world wars. Their purpose was to protect against Italian attacks. The remains of the most attractive military-historical architectural heritage are best preserved in the Poljanska Valley and ready for your exploration. The construction of the line was started by the Kingdom of Yugoslavia as early as 1937, and it is named after the Yugoslav general of Slovene descent, Leon Rupnik. The defensive line never served its purpose, as it was abandoned even before the Italian attack on Yugoslavia in the April war. The fortifications in our area are listed and drawn on a map and can be viewed at the link. There are shorter and longer themed trails for you with the possibility of visiting the ridge fortifications on Hrastov grič and Goli vrh. In it, you get to know the vastness of the underground, the method of construction at the time, see the museum of preserved exhibits from the time of construction and adrenaline-fueled ascent from the lookout tower through the firing line.

Iški vintgar is a picturesque gorge along which the river Iška flows. Its interesting image with a torrential river, gravel dunes, numerous pools and steep rocky banks, which in some places give it the appearance of a real canyon, was formed by strong tectonic faults. Walking through the gorge, you can see many interesting rocks, such as dolomite pebbles interspersed with white calcite veins, reddish and greenish rounded tiles with ore admixtures, etc., which testify to the varied geological history of the area. Its picturesque appearance is also enhanced by vegetation, trees with roots that cling to the slopes, and numerous alpine plants, such as hard sedge, rhododendron, two-flowered violet, Carniolan primrose and crowns. About an hour's walk from Iški vintgar is worth seeing the partisan hospital, which was one of the first in Slovenia, was already operating in April 1942. The hospital was renovated in 1966. From there, marked paths lead to Rakitno, Krim and Bloke.

The valley of the Triglav Lakes offers one of the most beautiful mountain tours in our mountains. The shallow and small Triglav lakes in the middle of a rocky landscape cannot leave visitors indifferent. A series of glacial lakes surrounded by rocks and high-altitude conifers were visited by naturalists as early as the eighteenth century. Already in the period of the first flourishing of mountaineering in Slovenia, the valley of the Triglav Lakes was considered one of the most beautiful parts of the Julian Alps. As an alpine protection park, it was protected as early as 1924. There are several possible starting points: from the Bohinj side across Komna or Komarča or from the Blato mountain. From Trenta across the Trebiščina mountain or through Zadnjica or from the Triglav side. This time the starting point was the mountain Blato, which we reach from Stara Fužina (towards Voje) through the valley of Suha. There are seven (or eight) glacial lakes throughout the valley, from the first at Prehodavci below Kanjavec (Vršac) to the last Black Lake below the steep Komarča. The higher parts of the Triglav Lakes valley are characterized by stunningly beautiful limestone peaks, while the lower parts are characterized by spruce and beech forests with extremely diverse flora and fauna. Above Komarča, in a slight arc towards Kanjavec (2568 m above sea level) and Triglav (2864 m above sea level), the green valley of the seven Triglav lakes encroaches between the rocky mountain ridges. Hundreds of species of mountain flowers fight in the rock crevices for barely perceptible chalk in the loose gravel. One of the many is also Zois bellflower, an endemic plant of the Slovenian Alps with a pale blue-purple narrow flower. On one side of the valley, it is surrounded by steep steep walls of the pushed ridge Zelnarica-Tičarica, which sink under extensive screes, and on the other side of the valley, scraped limestone floors rise towards the ridge of Lepi Špičje. All around are darkly piled gutters and ravines, through which snowdrifts and umbrellas flow. The whole tour is quite long, we walk many kilometers together in both directions and overcome about 1000 meters above sea level. It took me ten and a half hours for the whole trip in both directions, including stops in one day. Since this is a mountain tour that offers many experiences, I recommend that you take at least two days. Accommodation is possible during the season in Koča pri Triglavskih jezerih, Koča na Planini pri jezeru or Zasavska koča na Prehodavci. A visit to the valley is interesting in all seasons. It is most and most easily accessible in the late summer months. In winter, movement without skis is quite difficult, in spring the snow stays in the hollows for a long time, and in autumn we are somewhat limited by a shorter day. In the spring we can observe the awakening of mountain nature, in the summer we can refresh ourselves by pleasantly cold lakes, and in the autumn dried larch trees dress the valley in a fairy-tale golden-yellow color.

The Pekel Gorge, which is less than an hour's drive from Ljubljana's city streets, delights visitors in all seasons. The dark, damp and cold gorge with the roaring thunder of picturesque waterfalls really evokes a hellish feeling at first, but the attentive visitor will quickly realize that he has actually come to a magical place. Many also like to return because of the inn, which is famous for its excellent trout preparation. The gorge, into which the sun's rays rarely find their way, was created as a result of the sinking of the Ljubljana Marshes. The riverbed Otavščica, which originates on the Bloke-Rakitnica plateau and falls in wild waterfalls over overhanging walls and rocks, cut into the steep dolomite thicket. In the plain near Dražica, it merges with Prušnica and, like Borovniščica, flows towards the Ljubljana Marshes, where it flows into the Ljubljanica. Rapids and waterfalls are impossible to count in Hell. There are five larger ones, four of which are higher than 15 meters, the highest even close to 22. A protected and marked path leads past them, initially leading along footbridges and suitable for all hikers, and from the third waterfall onwards we are helped by steel cables, ladders, stairs and wedges. While walking uphill, it is interesting to observe the sliding, strands and breaking of individual waterfalls along the rocks, swirling water in pools and mists, and hikers will hear various sounds created by the foaming Otavščica, especially during heavy rain and collisions with hard dolomite. Almost all waterfalls - even the smaller, unmarked ones - have a number of special features that are revealed only to the naked eye, and many descriptions of the gorge in tourist guides can help us with this. Only a few are still without our Hell. Among other things, we notice or read that one waterfall hides behind a mighty wall, another is characterized by tufa, again the third is named after the silhouette of a chamois drawn on a rock next to it, the most beautiful has interesting troughs with drags.

This is a small lake formed in the headwaters of the river Račeva. The lake is triangular in shape, 120 m long and 100 m wide. The maximum measured depth is 5.5 m and the average is 2.9 m. At maximum water status, the surface of the lake is 0.85 ha, otherwise it fluctuates greatly; once a year, the lake, which is a spawning ground for frogs, even dries up. Although it is one of the smaller lakes in Slovenia, it is extremely interesting due to its location at the transition from the Alpine to the Dinaric world and the only one in this part of Slovenia.

This lake is the largest of all Pivka intermittent lakes. It is 2 kilometers away from the Pivka riverbed, north of the village of Palčje. The depression is 1.5 km long and 0.5 km wide with a flat bottom. When the water rises above 552 m, the lake also has two bays, Njivce and Ždink. The water from Lake Palška flows through Matijeva jama (estavela) and Kužica to Trnske izvire.

Go to the heart of the Idrija forests and visit a unique monument of technical heritage. The Idrija klavže on the Idrijca river, the Brusove klavže - Belčne klavže and Putrihove klavže on the Belca river have been restored and preserved for viewing, and the youngest are the Ovčjaške klavže on Ovčjakarica, a right tributary of the Kanomljica. Belške klavže was built in the years 1767—1769. They enabled the capture of up to 78,000 m³ of water and thus a single flood of up to 5,000 m³ of wood.
