Lož valley (Loška dolina )
Lož valley (Loška dolina) is a karst hollow, surrounded by high hills from all sides, among which Snežnik (1796 m) in the south is the highest. On the southeast the plain Babno polje gradually ascends and from there the way leads towards the Croatian Kvarner. Numerous natural and cultural points of interest attract visitors from all over Europe.
Height above sea level
There are 23 settlements located in that large karst plateau. Stari trg, which is the centre of the municipality and Lož, which was granted a municipality charter as early as 1477 are the largest of them.
In distant history it was relatively densely settled which is proved by numerous archaeological finds. The most interesting of them is the site Terpo on the nearby hill Ulaka. There is a beautiful outlook across the whole valley and a monument in memory of the victims of fascism.
Although these places have had a reputation of being a heavily industrialized region, which is technologically competitive to the rest of the world, one can still find quiet places of the traditional rural nostalgia.
