Features and Facilities
The Lower Carniola Region
In the far south-east of Slovenia, right by the border with Croatia, along the river Kolpa, lies Bela Krajina. The local people often say of their region that it lies on the sunny side of the Gorjanci Hills, and that it is a land of white birches and white national costumes, all of which is true. Today the region is known above all for its extraordinarily rich cultural heritage, while we should not overlook the numerous other material goods that the people of Bela Krajina can boast: the region's wines are extremely good – the best known are the red Metliška ?rnina and the white Belokranjsko Belo. The two traditional centres of Bela Krajina are the old towns of ?rnomelj and Metlika.
The region's many interesting sights and unspoilt and extremely beautiful countryside greatly help the development of tourism in Bela Krajina.
The other undoubted distinguishing feature of Bela Krajina is its folk heritage, with numerous folklore events attracting visitors from far and wide. Bela Krajina's winemakers are among the finest in Slovenia and their wines have won numerous international awards.
The most important natural sights of Bela Krajina include the river Kolpa, one of Slovenia's cleanest and warmest rivers, part of which flows through the protected landscape of the Kolpa Nature Park, and the river Lahinja, part of the basin of which forms a protected landscape area containing numerous karst phenomena. Also very beautiful and interesting is the powerful spring of the river Krupa near Semi?, where it is even possible to find specimens of the 'human fish' (Proteus anguinus).
No visitor to Bela Krajina should miss the chance to visit the Bela Krajina Museum in Metlika. Metlika is also home to the National Museum of Firefighting, where you can learn about the development of firefighting in Slovenia. The first volunteer fire brigade in Slovenia was founded in Metlika in 1869. Also worth visiting in Metlika is the Kambi? Gallery. The village of Vinica ob Kolpi has a lovingly curated commemorative collection dedicated to Oton Župan?i?, one of Slovenia's greatest poets and a native of these parts.
Among the popular events attracting large numbers of visitors to Bela Krajina every year is the Vinska Vigred ('Wine Spring') event in Metlika. Folklore enthusiasts gather in ?rnomelj for Slovenia's oldest folklore festival, Jurjevanje ('Feast of St George'), while a similar folklore-based event in Semi? is the Semiška Ohcet ('Semi? Wedding'), where couples get married according to the old Bela Krajina tradition, dressed in traditional local costumes.
The Kolpa River, the main site of interest in the Krajinski park Kolpa, passes through the southern edge of Bela krajina. Clean water, naturally intact river beds, numerous rapids and coves decorate the river. The Krajinski park is noted for its characteristically shaped Karst landscape, where cultivated fern-lands and carefully tended sinkholes are formed into terraces. The cultivated land retains a primeval air especially on the meadows and pastures. Herbal and animal diversity give to Bela krajina additional charm. Due to these facts the River Kolpa is listed as one of the areas of broader international concern, recognized under the name »Natura 2000«.
Mobile homes can be found by the Kolpa River, one of the most beautiful swimming rivers in Europe. Boating with kayaks, canoes or rafts as well as fishing permits are additional activities on offer here in the campsite. The bathing areas are well-kept and suitable for young children. A timber raft is installed in the middle of the river giving swimmers a pleasant rest point. Visits to nearby vineyard cottages with excellent Bela krajina wine tasting are also favorable.
Surrounding area is perfect for: mushroom picking, horse riding, different sightseeing trips and a lot more.
The surrounding lanes are ideal for cycling and hiking with several points of interest along the river Kolpa and in the nearby surroundings. More information and a list of possible local excursions can be obtained at the reception.
Mobile home in village Podzemelj is a perfect choice for families who want to spend active and memorable vacations.
