Opis

Although the municipality of Divača is small, it is full of diversities, which are the result of its position between the sea and the hilly inland region. Here the warm southern breeze mixes with the cold north wind, the famous “burja”. Most of the area is a limestone karst plateau, which abounds with distinctive karst features that made this patch of land famous worldwide. Here you will find the majestic Ĺ kocjan caves, which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the picturesque “udornice” (sinks), “vrtače” (sinkholes), and “žlebiči” (grykes) that are slowly being carved out by water on its way into the underground world of the karst plateau. The green wooded Senožeče hills, Vremščica and Brkini which surround the plateau are a complete contrast. Since prehistoric times, man who was in search of the way from the sea inland has populated this area of natural varieties. First, he would find shelter in caves, then construct ancient forts on top of safe hills, and finally settle down in villages where you can still smell the past. These are not majestic monuments to past and present cultures; they are tiny jewels, which more often than not remain hidden from visitors. They invite you to get off the main road and head towards secluded nooks where the past has become interwoven with the natural heritage. You will discover them on pleasant walks or bike rides along peaceful trails, on horseback or from a plane. Let yourself be seduced by the calm and peaceful landscape, lush flowers and karst features, and finish the day by being spoilt with delicious local dishes.
