At the meeting point of Slovenia's karst region and the Dinaric Alps lies the softly undulating Bloke plateau, which you can explore by car or, even better, by bicycle in summer and cross-country skis in winter. Its meadows offer abundant possibilities for peaceful relaxation, and the curious can explore unique wildlife habitats in the meanders of the Bloščica River and in the low moor beside it, ancient ethnographical curiosities, the history of Bloke skiing (among the earliest forms of skiing recorded in Europe), and the legend of the folk hero Martin Krpan.
