Solčavsko region in the lap of the Alps

Solčavsko is a geographically uniform region at the Slovenian-Austrian borderline, in the headwaters of the Savinja river, in the lap of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Karawanks.


The specialty of Solčavsko are three parallel Alpine, glacial valleys of Logarska dolina, Robanov kot and Matkov kot.


The famous Solčavsko panoramic road connects the large mountain farms in Matkov kot and farms in the Podolševa hamlet. It offers magnificent views over the valleys and the wreath of the Kamni-Savinja Alps.


Solčava is a small Alpine village that gave the region its name. Over the village rises the gothic church of St. Mary of the Snows. Only half an hour's walk out of the village, in the middle of the woods, almost a millenium old yew tree can be found.

High up on the slope of the Olševa, Potočka zijalka cave uncovers its secrets. More than 20 thousand years ago it was a shelter of Cro-Magnon. Srečko Brodar, a Slovenian archeologist, discoverd traces of paleolithic hunters in the cave in 1928.


Around the year 1000 the newcomers from the today's Carinthia settled around the slopes under Olševa. There lies the highest farm in Slovenia (Bukovni 1327m). Most inhabitants of Solčavsko live on the highland farms, since the narrow valley offers little space for settlements.


80% of Solčavsko region is under protection due to both landscape parks Logarska dolina and Robanov kot and the Natura 2000 site.
