The Cerknica lake


The Cerknica lake - presentation

The famous Cerknica plain with the intermittent lake changes its form every season of the year. Sometimes you can go ice skating on it, sometimes you can fish in it, during other months it's endless grassland.


Every time you visit it, it's different. Its unusual phenomena have been recorded many times, but it was Valvasor's 4descriptions and explanations that made it famous.


This world-renowned phenomenon is the largest intermittent lake in Europe. Aside from the interesting Karst hydrology, it is inhabited by many different animal and plant species.


The Jezerski hram museum stores a living model of the lake and its mysterious workings. You can also look at a multimedia presentation about the lake and at an ethnological collection.
