Well…These had been some crazy days in the Soča valley. 😲 You might not believe it, but this brown lake is actually the Soča river. Its flow yesterday was the fourth largest in the history of measurements and Tolmin was basically cut off from the rest of the valley. Heavy rains, melting snow, crazy wind and wild rivers remembered us that against nature we are small and that she is the queen of this planet. But on the other side, when Soča will gain its beautiful emerald colour back, we will appreciate it even more and continue on living in harmony with it. We hope every one is okay and we wish you a more peaceful rest of the week.

Since 2003 we celebrate International Mountain Day on December 11th. It is observed every year with a different theme relevant to sustainable mountain development. This year's theme provides an occasion to highlight how climate, hunger and migration are affecting highlands and to ensure that sustainable mountain development is integrated into the 2030 Agenda and in the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

As days grow shorter, the skies at sunset glow with the most spectacular hues, blooming with pinks, reds and oranges.
Did you know that autumn and winter sunsets are more vivid than any other time of the year?
During this time of year, weather patterns allow for dry, clean air to sweep across the sky, and more colors of the spectrum make it through to our eyes without getting scattered by particles in the air, producing brilliant sunsets and sunrises that can look red, orange, yellow or even pink.

Idrija nowadays numbers less than 7000 inhabitants, and the municipal centre unites competent administrative, educational, an cultural functions. The city possesses solid economic foundations, particularly the modern electro-metal processing, wherewith it once again has managed to open up to the developed world. Idrija’s brightest future should also be ensured by the development of tourism, since domestic and foreign guests are ever again pleasingly convinced that they have truly arrived in the city of a highly naturalistic, technical, and spiritual culture.

Today is St. Nicholas name day. In Slovene, we call him Nikolaj, when we talk about him as a historical personality, and the name Miklavž is used when we talk about him as a good man who presents gifts to children in early December. In Slovenia, he is the second saint in number of churches dedicated to him (immediately after the Virgin Mary). It is said that Nicholas was the son of wealthy parents, but he gave all inherited wealth to the poor, so he was always known as a generous saint. He is accompanied by angels and parks. How St. Nicholas arrives to us is covered in a mystery, because saints do not need earthly necessities for their operation. Some people think that he is coming on foot or even on a sledge. One thing is for sure, we are convinced that he enjoyed the beauties of the Posočje region when he was delivering gifts around our valley last night. And we... let's follow St. Nicholas example and help fellow man in the spirit of festive December. ❤️

Between Davča and Baška grapa stands a powerful landmark mountain, the highest peak of the Cerkno hills, Porezen. 1,630 m high mountain is known mainly due to the exceptionally beautiful views. At the top we are greeted by gorgeous panorama, on one side the Alps, sea on the other. Porezen is also one of the most interesting botanical peaks in Slovenia. Diverse limestone structure is surrounded by beautiful Alpine flowers. On the north side, five minutes before the summit stands a mountain hut Dom Andreja Žvana-Borisa (1590 m). The route is also interesting in the mountain-historical sense. At the top stands a monument, constructed in memory of the victims of the German offensive. Furthermore, interesting fragments of concrete underground tunnels, bunkers and fortifications of the Alpine Wall are still visible on the mountain.

Čekovnik is a settlement that lies southwest of Idrija and thus belongs to the municipality of Idrija. Čekovnik is comprised of hamlets Čekovnik, Hleviša, Nikova, Osojni vrh and Krekovše. Most of the houses lie on the main road on the sunny side of the Hleviška planina, but some isolated farms are located several kilometers away from the main road. The landscape is hilly, growing with lush mixed forest. In the past, people made a living with livestock breeding, forest work and working in the Idrija mine. For the needs of the mine, they also worked on »klavže« water bariers when harvesting timber. There are still many remnants of legal and illegal workshops where they burned cinobarite ore and in which they originally produced mercury. (wikipedia)

Emerald green river .. is this maybe the Soča river? The answer is no. On today's photo is the Tolminka river, which has a carst spring, then runs about 10km down its valley and finally flows into the Soča river. But it looks like emerald colour is quite popular among rivers in Posočje, right? 😉

Šebrelje is a village located on the Šebreljska plateau which rises steep above the Idrijca valley. There's a lot of hidden, mysterious ways and always something interesting for both artistic as well as a sports soul. You can visit the archaeological site of Divje babe, where the oldest flute was found, try geographically protected 'šebreljski želodec' (dried meat), admire sacral art and the beautiful nature's creations, take a walk along the route of the tavern and enjoy the unspoiled nature. Through all of this you will learn about the life of the people on the plateau and their tradition, which they try to maintain. (www.sebrelje.si)

After 837 posts of beautiful places from the Posočje region, there are still some locations or sights that we have never shown you before! This time we present you the Savinka waterfall, which is one of the tributaries of the Ajba stream. It can be almost unnoticeable, and in case of heavy rain it becomes quite watery and vertically falls across the wall into a rather deep pool. This changeable waterfall, which arches along the road between Ročinj and Kambreško, has been classified as a major hydrological heritage by the Institute for the Protection of Natural and Cultural Heritage Nova Gorica.

Even if snow is often causing problems on the roads, in traffic and elsewhere, we can all agree, that it can convince us otherwise when we look at such photographs. Let us remember winter fun, when we, with a smile on our face, make a snowman, or when we unexpectedly surprise somebody with the attack of snowballs. Yes, snow definitely awakens that little child in us, who we often forget about in this crazy world. Who else can't wait to make a big snowman in front of the house this year? 😉 ⛄️

Mlinarica is a torrential stream, which collects water between the slopes of Prisojnik (2547m) and Razor (2601m). In its lower course, Mlinarica has carved out the gorge. Hardly accessible, the 700m gorge reaches depths of up to 80m and is just 1m wide in some parts. The middle section boasts several waterfalls and pools. Mlinarica flows into the Soča river soon after the gorge. In recent years, rock falls have altered the appearance of the gorge, particularly in the lower section, that is why access is limited. The picturesque gorge with steep high walls is an important natural monument in the Triglav National Park.

Today, many people in Slovenia woke up into a snowy morning, but in the Soča valley snow did not descend to the lowlands, and we woke up into a dry morning. For a snowy fairy-tale and winter pleasures, it was necessary to ascend a few meters higher, to the surrounding hills and mountains, where the rain was swapped with snow and the blanket of snow was slightly thickened. Maybe in the middle of the week the white winter will visit us in the valley too. In our team, the wishes about that are divided, how is it with you? Are you a fan of snow or do you prefer to see it only on white peaks? 😊 ❄️ ⛄️

So special, so beautiful, emerald green, crystal clear,....we could go on and on. One of the most beautiful rivers in Europe was always a source of inspiration. Inspiration to common people and also to great artists. They have a special appreciation for beauty and can use it to create something that reflects our world and at the same time shows us their emotions. A great poet Simon Gregorčič who died 111 years ago today, lived his whole life by the Soča river. The poem Soči was one of his best works. With every word we feel his love for the river, despite his worry for upcoming war times.

November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.

The Otliško Okno is a unique karst phenomenon and a renowned Slovenian natural monument. It was formed from a sinkhole by corrosion and erosion just like all the Karst phenomena. Today it is 9 meters high, and 4 meters wide. There is much smaller window just beneath it. This majestic window provides a breathtaking and absolutely stunning view of the Vipava Valley and also the nearby village Otlica got the name after this magnificent work of nature.

If when looking at this photo, you thought that this is the Soča river, you were wrong. It shows one of the pearls of Posočje, the Učja river. It springs in Italy and flows to Slovenia in a picturesque valley and in Žaga it ends its way in the Soča river. In Slovenia Učja cut a narrow riverbed, difficult to access, which is known primarily for canyoning. On its way it also carved a number of pools, which are mostly difficult to access. The easiest way to reach the last ones is in the village of Žaga, just before Učja is flows into the Soča river.
