The Tršarjeva Homestead houses the village museum and the Laze Gallery. Along with images of Planinsko polje, objects from the everyday life of the local people are exhibited in the museum, and there is a particularly interesting collection of butterflies from Planinsko polje. Here also is a ceramics workshop where Nataša Prestor produces small earthenware sculptures inspired by the Slovene folk tradition and forms of folk decoration.
The picturesque, six-kilometer valley of Rakov Škocjan was formed as the roof of an underground passage collapsed, which is vividly illustrated by the Mali (Small) and Veliki (Great) natural bridges. At the beginning of the valley, the karst Rak and Ljubljanica rivers spring from the Zelške caves, and down the valley along the forest slopes lead the speleologist transversal, a riding trail, and the Forestry and Natural Science Education Trail. The area has been protected as a landscape park since 1949.
