This is a pleasant walk from the road leading to Podkoren and Kransjka Gora. It's easy to miss though so look carefully. There is a trail which is a bit confusing since it goes in a loop and it's not immediately clear where the source of the Sava River is. We took a wrong turn but were then guided by... More

We stopped here before crossing the border to Italy to swim on Lago Raibl. A nice 10 min walk to the crystal clear spring waters and also a good cafe in the car park. Well worth a stop of you're in the area.

The water is clearer than you could possibly imagine and the explanation of how the River Sava (the biggest river in Slovenia) is born is very well explained on the interpretation panels. Wildlife and wild flowers are everywhere, and it is well signed... More

We passed this on the way back from a walk - interesting in terms of the source if the river sava which obviously turns into a very large and long river- though not what you would call a spectacular landscape.

It was OK but nothing special, fortunately we didn't have to go out of our way to go there as it's only a couple of miles from Kranjska Gora.

Great surrounding with mistically coloured small lake, wooden pathway and viewing tower. Small springs all-over with bubbles through the lake make it interesting for kids, too. A pair of ducks, some bees and fish - our kids were happy to visit this place and so were we, enjoying the calm and splendid views. There is a simple buffet at the... More
