Central Primorska

Introducing Central Primorska

Central Primorska is a land of steep slopes, deep valleys and innumerable ravines with plenty of good hiking, the magical Idrijca River and a couple of interesting towns. The region is dominated by the Cerkno and Idrija Hills, foothills of the Julian Alps.

Nowhere else in Slovenia are fields found on such steep slopes and houses found in such remote locations as in the regions around Idrija and Cerkno. The ravines and valleys were very useful to the Partisans during WWII, and the region is dotted with monuments testifying to their presence.
