Nature of the Landscape Park

Nature of the Landscape ParkThe Logar Valley Landscape Park is extremely abundant in various natural formations. Through time, the geological substratum, glacial activity and other external factors have sculpted numerous wonderful sights. The most beautiful among them is the Logar Valley itself with its extraordinary views of the mountain walls and glacially sculpted floor with alternating forests and meadows. The Logar Valley is known for its numerous waterfalls, one of which is Rinka Falls, one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Slovenia. The steep slopes have been adorned by nature with a plethora of caves.

The valley and the mountainsides boast a variety of mountain flowers, some of which are very rare or even endangered. On Okrešelj, in the botanic oasis and elsewhere in the park, you can admire slipper orchids, Carniolan lilies, Auriculas, Zois’ Bellflowers, gentians, edelweisses and Kamnik orchids.
 
The natural diversity is also reflected by the multitude of protected monuments, as the park contains 7 natural monuments and 35 natural assets of national and local importance.
