Koroška (Carinthia) comprises three valleys – the Mežiška dolina, the Dravska dolina and the Mislinjska dolina valleys, and three mountain ranges – the Pohorje, the Karavanke and the Savinjske Alpe, that mark the landscape with an independent originality and solidity. A little above a thousand square kilometres and some more than 74 000 inhabitants put this region amongst the smallest in Slovenia. Descend into the subterranean world under Mt. Peca and discover the land of King Matjaž. Lend your ear to Lake Ribnica and perhaps you’ll encounter the Jezernik merman who, legend has it, dwells in this lake. Awaken the adventurous spirit within you as you tread the numerous trails embraced by wonderful mountain nature and forests. Allow natural treasures to take your breath away as you walk through the UNESCO Geopark Karavanke and the Topla Valley. On all of these trails, you will be welcomed by the incredible hospitality of the locals.
