Welcome to the Zgornja Idrijca Landscape Park!

Zgornja Idrijca (Upper Idrijca) is the area of the Idrijca and Belca rivers, their tributaries, and the surrounding nature. In 1993, the authorities recognized the special geologic, geomorphologic, hydrologic, and botanic characteristics as well as the high level of natural preservation and declared the area a landscape park.

The landscape park offers numerous natural and cultural monuments that you can sightsee and learn about on the Zgornja Idrijca Landcape Park Trail.

- of picking plants and/or their parts for commercial purposes;
- of hunting and/or collecting animals (fishing and game management excluded);
- of excessive noise;
- of any littering;
- of camping and lighting fires outside the marked spots;
- of any other activities that can cause significant damage to the protected area.
