Groundwater is the main source of drinking water in Slovenia, and its flowing in the Karst area creates unbelievable works of art, hidden corridors and dramatic subterranean landscapes.

Meet the subterranean system of the river Reka in Škocjan Caves, which features the deepest and largest subterranean canyon in the world.
