What is the name of the first spring of the Sava Dolinka River?


The correct answer is Nadiža.

Sava Dolinka first comes to the surface from underneath Ponce in the Tamar Valley, then it disappears and comes out the second time at the Zelenci nature reserve.

The trip to the Nadiža chute begins at the Tamar mountain cabin and leads along a fairly steep path for almost 1 kilometre.

It only takes 20 minutes to get to the spring, but you must have appropriate footwear and be quite fit. Access to the spring itself is only allowed if you are equipped with a helmet.
