River Temenica

The river Temenica is next to the river Ljubljanica one of the most typical disappearing rivers, which has through the centuries created one of the longest karst valleys in Slovenia. It springs in the Posavje Hills at the village Javorje, but because of the change of the bedrock the river has two more springs before it joins the river Krka. The first time it disappears gradually into a sinkhole at the village of Dolenje Ponikve or, when water levels are high, into sinkholes under the hill Sveta Ana (St. Anne). After a couple of kilometres of underground current, the river springs from multiple sources under a high rock overhang called Zijalo, from where it flows through a narrow valley to the village of Vrhovo, under which it disappears again. For the final time it springs next to the cave Luknja near the settlement of Prečna and after a few more kilometres joins the river Krka.

The most distinctive and picturesque river valley in the municipality is marked by a great biodiversity with still functional floodplains, where high floodwaters spill on average twice a year.
