Lake Podpeč

One of the best things in Slovenia is the fact that everything is really close. So – if you are spending your time in Ljubljana and you are looking for some natural beauty (landscape photography) check out the Ljubljana Marshes.

The area extends over the south part of the Ljubljana Basin and it covers Slovenia’s largest complex of wet grasslands with hedges and forests, shrubs and watercourses. One of the treasures  that you just must visit in the area is Lake Podpeč.

The lake is situated near the settlement Jezero. It is small (only around 130 meters in diameter), almost completely round and its maximum depth is  – watch out! – 51 metres. The special feature of the lake is its water regime, with water flowing into it from seven surface karst sources and flowing out under the ground, through a deep aven.

Since the lake is so small … you can walk around it a few times to check where you can take the best photos, the important part is – it is worth getting there!
