ACTIVITIES ON THE BANJŠICE PLATEAU
When you climb up the steep, winding road to an altitude of over 600m, you will be astonished. In fact, the Banjšice Plateau is a world in itself. The altitude of the highest part of the karst plateau is 1071m. Although there is no running water here, it is full of caves and ravines as well as a lot of karst phenomena. Each year, the annual traditional Mowing Festival enlivens the atmosphere. Alongside the well-maintained road, beautifully winding through the pastures and forests, you can see cows lying lazily in the grass and other animals enjoying the unspoiled nature. When you meet the horses grazing on the vast pastures, time slows down. Just what you on your long-awaited holiday!
