The area of the villages of Idrijske Krnice and Masore – where locals jokingly say that even flat land is sloping uphill and where not many can imagine living – is home to kind, resourceful, and hard-working people.
Where the valleys of the Idrijca and Kanomljica rivers meet, at an altitude of 1,000 m above sea-level where the sky touches the earth, lies the highland village of Idrijske Krnice. The plateau has maintained the values of traditional farming life in a vibrant and tightly knit village community. All this has left its mark in what the place offers to tourists: a unique experience of a world without noise and without a race against time, the healing power of herbs, and excellent dairy products from two local farms.
The steep slopes of Masore above the Idrijca River are still home to individual farms where generations have persisted through hard work for centuries. Today, however, only a handful remain. One could say that the village of Masore is so close, yet so very far away from the rest of the world. Only a stone’s throw away, on the other side of the Idrijca River, is the winding road known as Keltika, which is the main road connecting the Posočje region with central Slovenia.
