Cerknica is the largest town on a lake that isn’t always a lake – one of Slovenia’s most unusual natural phenomena. It’s a good springboard for the gorge at Rakov Škocjan and Notranjska Regional Park as a whole, not least because it's a quiet little place that gets none of the tourist buses that can plague nearby Postojna. If you'll be in the area in the week before Ash Wednesday, don't miss Cerknica's fun carnival celebrations.
