“Križna cave (Križna jama) is a 8,273 meter long cave system, which is located under the area of Bloke, Loškim and Cerknica field. The cave features a chain of underground lakes with emerald green water. With its biological diversity, the cave is considered to be the fourth largest known ecosystem in the world.”
“Lake Cerknica is one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe. It appears every year on the karst polje (plain), caught between the Javorniki hills and the Bloke plateau on one side, and Mount Slivnica on the other. During the dry season, the lake disappears, which enables paddling, fishing, hiking or grass mowing in the same area in just one year. Through all seasons it shows completely different faces and to truly feel what Lake Cerknica is, you have to come back many times. The lake can be seen from several sides, but I suggest that you start in the village of Dolnje Jezero, where locals have put up a museum about their mysterious attraction.”
