Kostel Castle Trail

TŠD Kostel
Hrib 6 1336 Kostel
++386 1 894 21 75
You can also bicycle this trail if you like, because it runs on asphalt and forest roads. The starting point is the village of Žaga, which you reach by the asphalt road along the Kolpa River after turning off the main road at Fara. You can park the car near Žaga. First, a gentle climb leads along the Jarak stream past the abandoned houses on the left. Turn right before the fish farm where a steeper ascent leads to the village of Podstena (collection of old farm implements) and the little Church of the Holy Spirit (the famous Lukova jama cave is in the steep slope above the village). Through the hamlet of Suhor, continue to Kaptol, where you can enjoy a snack at the “Pri Grofu” restaurant. The views of the Kolpa Valley and Kostel Castle get better and better. Continue on the trail to Ajbelj and then through Briga to Banja Loka (Church of Sv. Jakob from 1742). Beside the monument, take a steep road down to hamlet of Vimolj, and continue with gentle ascents and descents through the hamlets of Rajšele, Selo, and Lipovec to the castle. From there, descend to the starting point. The trail is marked with information signs, and a descriptive brochure is available.
