BELA KRAJINA PARTISAN PATH

The path takes us around Bela krajina and reminds us of the times during the National Liberation Front from the Second World War.
Direction: Metlika (Pungart) - Rakovec - Radovica - Suhor - Smuk - Semič - Mirna gora - Črnomelj - Dobliče - Stari trg ob Kolpi - Vinica - Dragatuš - Adlešiči - Podzemelj - Gradac - Metlika.
The path is marked by a variety of Bela krajina's nature and on your way you can experience the genuine hospitality of the local people.



PATH TO KRAŠNJI VRH

The highest lying village of the Metlika region, situated 526m above sea level, offers a spectacular panoramic view of Bela krajina. The local mountain association from Metlika built a 17m high belvedere, which will only fascinate you even further.
The marked mountain footpath takes you to Krašnji vrh from Metlika. The footpath stretches across fields, forests, and vineyards, passes villages Slamna vas and Bojanja vas, where it reaches Krašnji vrh, and continues onwards to the village Radovica, and then back to Metlika





PATH TO TRDINOV VRH

Direction: Metlika (Pungart) - Berčice - Grabrovec - Bušinja vas - Ravnace - zavetišče - Mali Lipovec - Trdinov vrh. The entire walk takes seven hours, while the walk from Suhor to the top takes five hours and a half, and four hours from Jugor to Trdinov vrh. The path to Suhor runs among vineyards, the picturesque forest and the colourful nature of Bela krajina.





EDUCATIONAL PATH ZDENC-VIDOVEC, BOŽAKOVO

On the edge of Bela krajina karstic flatland and east of the village Božakovo, we can find two magnificent karstic caves Zdenc and Vidovec. Božakovo stretches alongside the river bank, where Kolpa has carved its way deep into the river valley with a high Magdalenska rock. We strongly recommend a visit to the Baroque church of St Magdalena. The spring cave Zdenc with a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes is one of the most extraordinary spring caves in Bela krajina, revealing the once strong bond between people and karstic springs. The spring flowing out of the cave under the village was dammed by the villagers, and the 78 metre long spring cave stretches behind the fenced entrance. The cave Vidovec, 270 m, is the longest water cave in Bela krajina, parallel carved by the brook Vidovec. The entire walk takes one hour.




URBANOVA PATH

Not many people have heard of the village Grabrovec, marked by the church of St Urban, the patron of vine. The Urbanova Path begins in Metlika, and through vineyards, forest and fields leads us to the church of St Urban. Every May and the New Year's Eve, the locals organise a traditional party near the church. A similar landscape takes us back to Metlika and concludes the 6.3 km long path.








EDUCATIONAL PATH KUČAR-KOLPA

The educational path Kučar-Kolpa is a circular path, which takes you to the camping area of the village Podzemelj, to the top of the Kučar hill, back across Zemelj, pass the Church of St. Helen to the starting point. During your walk you can learn about the site of an ancient fort from the period of the early Iron Age, examine sepulchral mounds, enjoy the river Kolpa, and thus relish at the site of wonderful scenery, intertwined with fields, forests, and vineyards. However, the greatest reward for all you trekkers is undoubtedly the middle of the path, when you rise to a 222m high Kučar hill and behold the spectacular route Kolpa chiselled throughout history.






BEČKA CAVE

Under the village Boldraž, and in the vicinity of Slamna vas, you can re-discover a 65m long and 18m deep cave, called Bečka jama. It is classified as a natural treasure of national importance. Following the river bed of a dry valley, the designated path will lead you to the cave in no more than 10 minutes. Entrance to the cave appears as a wide precipice. Inside the cave reveals smaller stalactite curtains, stalagmites, and pillars. Many cave animals have found their abode inside the cave, such as bats. In the past year the locals cleaned the entrance, put up an information board, and issued a brochure. You can see the cave only if accompanied of speleologists.
