Inquiry

Lower Carniola stretches all the way from the Ljubljana Basin in the northwest, along the Kolpa River and the border with Croatia and the Gorjanci Mountains to the south and southeast, along the powerful Sava River to the north and northeast, and up to Mount Krim, the Bloke Plateau, and the Potok Plateau to the west. Called Dolenjska in Slovenian, this amazing region has a rich history with immense medieval Habsburg influence and WWII significance. Lower Carniola boasts an incredible countryside with outdoor adventures around every bend. Its rivers are perfect for water sports such as kayaking, rafting and fishing. Its thick forests and hills lined with vineyards invite visitors for long hikes and cycling trips in the wilderness. Dolenjska cuisine is hearty, packed with ingredients from its farmlands, and its wine, predominantly red (Cviček), is the region’s pride and joy. Lower Carniola is dotted with rustic villages, gorgeous towns, ancient castles, hot springs, water parks, super friendly locals, which amounts to another must-visit Slovene region for a cultural injection and tons of things to do.
