From Ljubljana you reach the Kostel region via Pijava Gorica, Velike Lašče, past Nova Štifta, and through Ribnica (1) and Kočevje. Kostel Castle (12) will fascinate you with its turbulent history and dominant position on a towering rock promontory. Beside the road just before the village of Fara, refresh yourself in the fifteen-meter Nežica Waterfall (10). Continue along the Kolpa River to Osilnica and the valley’s seven churches. Along the way, stop to see Sv. Ana on its promontory high above the river, the 17th-century Church of Sv. Vid in Bosljiva Loka, and the Church of Sv. Egidij, with its old-fashioned shingled roof in Ribjek. The largest of the seven is the Church of Sv. Peter and Pavel in Osilnica, while the churches in Čačiči, Papeži, and Žurge fascinate visitors with their wonderful views. Even if church architecture is not your thing, you will still enjoy exploring the valleys of the Kolpa and the Čabranka, which joins the Kolpa near Osilnica.
