Cerknica is the largest town on a lake that isn’t always a lake – one of Slovenia’s most unusual natural phenomena. It’s an excellent springboard for the gorge at Rakov Škocjan and Notranjska Regional Park as a whole.
Cerknica lies about 3km north of Lake Cerknica. Cesta 4 Maja is the main street in the centre of town. The bus station is on Čabranska ulica about 100m to the southwest and behind the post office.
