Opis

The municipality of Dobrepolje spans the territory of two karst valleys, which lie between Mala gora and Tisovška plateau of the Dobrepolje and Struška valleys. The municipality was founded on 1st January 1995 and borders the municipalities of Grosuplje, Ivančna Gorica, Žužemberk, Kočevje, Ribnica and Velike Lašče. Dobrepolje is a dry karst field, about 35 kilometres from Ljubljana. It is triangular and lies in the Dinaric world. Its highest point (450 metres above sea level) is in the north, and in the south, it is almost forty metres lower. In the north, it is about three kilometres wide, then towards the south-east, it becomes narrower and ends in Struge. This part of the karst field is known for a number of disappearing streams and often floods, which is not surprising as many sources of streams surface where the flat land and the hills (partly of dolomite) meet in the west. The field is 14 kilometres long. There are areas of stagnant water, e.g. Stara luža (luža=puddle) between the villages of Cesta and Videm, luža Rekarica in Podtabor, and the “lužas” (puddles) of Krnica and Močilo between the villages of čŒatež and Potiskavec.
In the Podpeč cave, which had already been explored by Valvazor (1641 – 1693), the Proteus, also known as the Human Fish or White Salamander, was found. It is very likely that the Proteus also live in other caves below Mala gora. Valvazor drew the plan of the Podpeč cave and published it already in 1687. This was the first plan of any Slovenian karst caves, and among the first ones in Europe. There are many pot-holes on the municipal territory, of which some reach a depth of 800 metres (the pot-hole on Ĺ pičnik, Mala gora).
