Bela krajina Nature Centre
Did you know that we can admire more than 40 species of orchids in the Bela krajina region? Would you like to discover the diverse life of the karst world? How can we influence the reduction of pollution of nature? You can find the answers to all these questions in interactive presentations, using smartphones and in an inviting corner for children at the Bela krajina Nature Centre.
Take a peek into the karst cave, where the endemic black olm and Jalžić’s shell await you. The latter is the only cave shell in the world that lives only in the Krupa River in Slovenia. As viticulture is an important part of everyday life for the people of Bela krajina, there is also a wine-growing collection with a tasting wine shop in the cellar premises.
If you walk only a few hundred metres from the Bela krajina Nature Centre through the market centre of Semič, you will literally arrive in the middle of nature. Upon entering the Dr Derganc learning garden, a meadow orchard surrounds you with a variety of tree species, fragrant healing herbs and bunches of grapes, where hard-working bees are buzzing. Both points are accessible for persons with impaired movement.
