Placidly sited in the south-eastern Slovenia, between the Ljubljana basin and the Sava river, Dolenjska has many surprising faces. The varied relief, numerous streams, karst features and biodiversity create its unforgettable dynamic.
Through the local landscapes there extend boastful deep green forests, whose primeval remains and giant trees are absolutely breathtaking. The river valleys of sparkling beauties, the Krka, Mirna, Kolpa and Lahinja Rivers, which give a home to rare plant and animal species, invite visitors into their quiet retreats.
On the slopes of its hills ripen sun-kissed grapes, which, once they are in the wine cellars, grow into a veritable poetry whose verses run inwards. In the bosom of its deep springs bubble restorative and healing thermal waters.
