River Rinža

The Rinža River is the only river in the Kočevje region beside the bordering Kolpa river. It is clearly a karst river. It has many springs; the biggest one near the village of Mrtvice is called Reberski studenec. After a short flow on the surface it disappears underground at the end of the Kočevje Plains. In the old times the river flowing through Kočevje represented a defence ditch surrounding the castle with the town centre, creating an island. After the threats of invasion were over the ditch was filled up and nowadays the river forms a bend around the old town centre. The river was kept on surface with the help of dams. In the period of industrialisation there were many mills and sawmills operating along it. Today it is polluted as the town’s sewer system still partially flows into it.
