A scenic walk to the springs of the Big Ljubljanica.

You can start an hour long circular walk in front of TIC Vrhnika, continue towards the springs of the Ljubljanica and walk towards Retovje.

Retovje is a slightly hidden valley in the wooded foothills of the Raskovec Hill and the Ljubljana Peak. It was formed by a gradual collapse of cave roofs. In this valley lie the springs of the Big Ljubljanica, which joins the Little Ljubljanica from Močilnik and Verd. From here on the river is called Ljubljanica. There are number of springs in the valley: Pod skalco, Pod Orehom, Malo Okence and Veliko Okence. In the 19th century there were more than ten water powered sawmills here.

Continue towards Verd, but don't overlook the Miklič Granary and Kotnik-Lenarčič park. Cross the Ljubljanica and continue this lovely walk back to the city center of Vrhnika.
