Jurca Peat Bog

Nature works and creates slowly, over centuries ...

The Jurca Peat Bog is one of the rare areas of the Ljubljana Marsh where you can still find the remains of bog and its typical vegetation. Almost all of the peat was cut during the years when it was intensively used as a fuel. The Peat Bog is a natural monument of national importance.

The Jurca Peat Bog is located in the basin between Bevke and Drenov Grič. There you can discover the origin of the peat, which is the procedure of turning a fen into a bog (a wetland that acummulates peat, builds up and becomes typically a few metres higher). Peat is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic matter that cannot decompose due to the lack of oxygen.
