Črni Vrh is a central village on the vast Črnovrška planota (plateau) beside the Godovič-Col-Ajdovščina road. The overtly karst territory is marked by sinking creeks, sinkholes, and numerous potholes. Črni Vrh is surrounded by dark beech and spruce forests, and this fact probably explains the origin of its name. The settlers of the Middle Ages had to reclaim, in order to till and cultivate the land, the land from the embrace of the forests. The so-called groves (logi), which gave names to settlements on the plateau (Zadlog, Idrijski Log, Mrzli Log, Zali Log) also originated from these activities. The largest such settlement under the name of Črni Vrh is first mentioned in the 16th century. The principal cultural-historic monument in Črni Vrh is the aforementioned church of St Just. Within the park in the middle of the settlement, there stand two monuments erected in memory of Dr. Frančišek Lampe and Matej Cigale, today is the most world known the Jesuit padre Marko Ivan Rupnik (1954), master of mosaics. The close and distant neigbours of črni Vrh are Zadlog, Idrijski Log, Predgriže, gornje and Spodnje Lome, Javornik, Kanji Dol, Strmec, Mali Log and some other smaller hamlets. On Javornik stand a mountain lodge and a astronomical observatory. Another, even more advanced, professional observatory, intended mostly for experts, was set up on Griško gričevje (hills) above Predgriže. In Gornje Lome stand a new skiing centre Javornik.
