Have you ever visited green valleys, vast forests, sunny plateaus with mysterious lookout peaks rising above them offering magnificent views? Have you ever recaptured the greatness of the acts of war or invite the spring at the end of the winter together with "laufars", Slovene traditional masks?
A unique landscape, a world of ancient memories, primitive and intact nature, historical and cultural monuments, beautiful places, diverse culinary offers and friendly people – this is the essence of the Cerkno region.
We invite you to experience the diversity and variation of the landscape that was mysteriously shaped by nature and hard-working men throughout the centuries!
The Cerkno region is not only distinguished by its rich cultural heritage, which is known only by the few who already visited the more remote green valleys, romantic ravines, broad forests and sunny plateaus. Without doubt, the rich, diverse and picturesque nature along with numerous natural and cultural monuments and the particularly hospitable inhabitants that serve you with home-made culinary delights will enrapture you and you will be happy to visit again.
In the winter you can also experience the traditional "laufarija" of the Cerkno region and in the summer time the picturesque Divje babe archaeological site, hidden above the Idrijca valley, below the Šebreljska plateau, where the oldest instrument in the world, the Neanderthal bone flute, was discovered inside a Karst cave in Paleolithic layers.
Those who enjoy the white slopes in the winter, are invited to the modernly equipped Cerkno Ski Centre. We offer you well arranged accommodation in a hotel, the Cerkno Ski Centre restaurant by the ski slope, and in numerous private rooms and serviced apartments in the vicinity of the ski slope or other intact areas of the Cerkno region. During the summer you may make a stop at the Franja Partisan Hospital located in the Pasice gorge and at the same time visit the Kamlonarše homestead and the birthplace of the writer France Bevk in Zakojca.
