BEAR HIDE # 2
Hide is located in the Gorski Kotar municipality on the border between Slovenia and Croatia, at the juncture of the playful Karst and the mysterious forests of Notranjska- Kočevje and Gorski Kotar. It is located on the terraces above the Čabranka river on the steep slopes below the Travski vrh. It offers plenty of natural sights and unspoiled nature that are calling you to visit. The secrets from the vast forests of Notranjska-Kočevje and Gorski kotar will not leave you indifferent, since the most mysterious stories and forest beasts can be sensed that we could not commonly meet. The unspoiled nature of these forests is a popular bear habitat. There, all the Photohunt enthusiasts and adventurers can catch a sight of the brown bear and create new photo collections. In addition to the main attraction which is obviously the bear, you can find there the famous "snake spruce" which is an exceptional natural rarity and therefore declared a natural monument. Because its branches are shaped like snakes' tails, it is known as a "snake spruce". An example of such a spruce grows in our village of Loški Potok. Another special rarity is the gold spruce which also grows in Loški Potok and is also declared a natural monument. The nearby surroundings of the Loški Potok also contains several sights and reasons for visiting and to create excellent photos. In the Bloke Lake, the biggest tourist attraction is certainly the Glamping Lake Bloke - where everything is made of wood from the hands of the locals. Another interesting sight is the Križna jama - a world-famous Karst cave with a special feature of many underground lakes with speleothem barriers - an exceptionally conserved site to find the bones of a cave bear.
