Where Witches Bewitched Nature

Print Add to travel planner
Leave the Ljubljana-Koper expressway at the Logatec exit and take the local road to Laze on the Planinsko polje. Here, the Unica River meanders and disappears into the pod Stenami sinkholes near Laze. The route continues to Cerknica with its Church of Marijino rojstvo (“Birth of Mary”). Burned down by the Turks, it was rebuilt and surrounded by a defensive wall that is still partially preserved. Behind Cerknica spreads Slovenia’s largest karst polje and the disappearing Cerknica Lake (37). A presentation of the working of the numerous sinkholes of this karst phenomenon is displayed in the Jezerski hram museum, and the best view of the lake is undoubtedly from the peak of Mount Slivnica (1,114 m). The route continues toward the Bloke plateau, turning right in Bloška polica toward Lož and continuing to the Križna jama cave. A boat tour on the magic blue-green water of the underground river takes visitors to see the stalactites. A few kilometers more brings you to Snežnik Castle, which last served as a hunting lodge for its aristocratic owners and still boasts their interesting collection of furniture and trophies.
