The gentle landscape of Dolenjska (formerly known as Lower Carniola) is a panorama of valleys, rolling hills and forests, where you can almost smell the sweet scent of grapes growing in the vineyards on sun drenched slopes. Farmer's fields link with green meadows and numerous church bell towers stretch towards the blue sky. Time stands still where ancient castles guard historical towns and lonesome hayracks border quiet millstones. The beautiful green Krka river flows over Dolenska's dams and rapids, as if merging with the flora and fauna on it's banks. First it flows to the Karst plateau, called Suho Krajina, then meets the historic fortress town of Žužemberk and drops down to Soteske, passing Dvor. A former castle park is preserved at the Devil's Tower.
