Kočevje — 3 nights

Together with the Krokar primeval forest, which is inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List, the Kočevje Region makes for a truly mystical forest landscape.
When in Kočevje, make a side trip to see Kolpa River in Metlika, approximately Metlika away. There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Krokar Primeval Forest, take some stellar pictures from Veliki Rog, step into the grandiose world of Muzej Ribnica, and explore the activities along Lake Kočevje.
