At an altitude of 700-900 metres, between the Bača and Idrijca rivers, there is a plateau where you can find food your body and soul. The Šentviška planota Plateau is an oasis of peace, intact nature and kind people.
Distance 32.3 km
From the town of Most na Soči to the village of Klavže you have to drive along a narrow and busy road, however, from Klavže to the Šentviška planota Plateau, you have the road practically for yourself. The narrow and winding road to the village of Logaršče is routed through a shady forest, which is why you will be protected from the scorching heat. After ascending for approximately 4 km, the terrain levels up and the road goes up and down the terrain across the plateau all the way to the village of Ponikve, which is the first of the major destinations of this tour. In Ponikve, it is almost mandatory to visit the renowned Plečnik’s church located on a small rising above the village where marvellous views open to all four directions. Due to the beautiful surrounding environment and quietness, which is almost forgotten in the valley, it will be quite difficult for you to leave this sightseeing point and continue through the village towards the village of Pečine. Along the road, you can admire the façades of old houses decorated with flowers of all colours and the renowned drying-frames with unusual masonry columns. You can especially enjoy in the quietness and the greenness of the plateau. From Pečine you descend towards the village of Slap ob Idrijci. Here, you cross the river and continue back to the starting point along a nicely routed Kosmač Educational Trail.
While following this trail, you will have a chance to visit the birth house of Ciril Kosmač (turn left after crossing the bridge across the Idrijca River).
