Slovenian has twenty-four expressions, mostly of folk origin, tor standing water. The names Ljubljanski morost, mah, močvir or močvirje were in common use for the Ljubljana Marsh until 1880, when the Slovenian writer Fran Levstik used the name Ljubljansko Barje for the first time.

The fens and bogs that coveres most of the Ljubljana Marsh in the past have almost disappeared. There are only two hectares of bog left in Kostanjevica Hill near Bevke, at a site named Mali plac. This area has special recognition as the southernmost bog in Europe. It is protected as a nature reserve and has a unique ecosystem with special flora and fauna. Close by is the Jurca Peat Bog (jučevo šotišče), which is one of the last remnants of peat on the Ljubljana Marsh. A few kilometers away in Lesno Brdo is the geologically interesting Kucler Duarry (Kuclarjev kamnolom) which is protected due to its unique tectonic and paleontological characteristics. Its rock, like that at another quarry in the area, is black limestone. Visits to all these sites are possible either by walking or biking, but taking a guided tour is recommended.
