Crnomelj is the largest city in Bela krajina. The old town centre is situated on a promontory on a narrow bend of the Lahinja and Doblicica Rivers. The first settlement already existed here during the Bronze Age, and since then this little bend of the river has been continuously inhabited. Written sources already began mentioning Crnomelj in 1228 under the name Schirnomel. In 1407, it received city rights and quickly began to develop in terms of trade and commerce. Its economy was given a new stimulus in 1914 when the first train arrived to the city. During the National Liberation War, the first meeting of the Slovenian National Liberation Committee was held here.
The Lahinja Regional Park is in the heart of Bela krajina near Crnomelj. It is an exceptionally rich mixture of natural and cultural heritage, boasting eight protected natural monuments, six cultural monuments and two nature reserves. The main attraction is the peaceful and clean Lahinja River. The village of Pusti Gradac on a bend of the Lahinja River is also worthy of special attention with its functioning Klep?ev mill and Venetian sawmill. At the top of the river peninsula lies the Church of All Saints, which features a famous bell tower and many paintings. The Park Information Centre is located within a 200-year old house in the village of Veliki Nerajec.
