PROGRAM GOLOBINA – »Following the Obrh Stream to the Golobina Cave in the Loško polje«
We offer you a chance to learn about the karst phenomena of river sinks and drainage of surface water to the underground, and visit a cave and its inhabitants.
The drainage area of the Loško polje, which lies in the heart of the Classical Karst, is where the Obrh Stream disappears into a sinkhole. Some of the water from the stream emerges in the Golobina Cave. The cave features many different karst formations of unusual appearance. The cave animals that live in the water and on dry land are tiny, adapted to the absence of light, high humidity levels and low temperatures.
The starting point of our journey is the village of Dane in the municipality of Loška dolina in Notranjska.
