Slovenia is the only country in Europe that combines the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain and the Karst. The changing landscape is constantly surprising, time and again. You can have one eye on the sea, then look in the other direction and be surrounded by high mountains. Heading up into the forests, you can see the green plains below you. From upland meadows your view stretches into river gorges. This proximity of opposites and contrasts is a hallmark of the country.   

In Slovenia you can still walk through virgin forest, or watch the grapes ripen on the oldest vine in the world. You can hear tales of bears, and eat forest fruits that you have foraged yourself on a brief walk out of town. Here you can uncover the secrets of the land, and what lies beneath it. Here you are part of nature.

The village of Rakitna lies in the heart of a large karst plateau surrounded by the Krim-Mokc Hill Range, at a height of 800 metres above sea level. Famed for its healthful climate, which is due to the mixing of air currents coming from the Mediterranean and the Alps, it is the location of a children's health resort.   

The scenic Lake Rakitna is a popular day-trip destination and base for walks and hikes around the area. Next to the lake is a modern hotel. The lake, suitable for swimming in the summer and ice skating in winter, offers an opportunity for common carp, grass carp, European perch, and trout fishing.   

Lake Rakitna is the base for a popular 40-minute circular walk and a one-and-a-half-hour archaeological trail leading to the remains of a 3rd century tower and wall, part of a Roman defence system known as Claustra Alpium Iuliarum. The village of Rakitna is also the starting point for several longer hiking and cycling routes, the most popular leading to the nearby Mount Krim (1,107m). The area offers ample opportunity for cross country skiing.   

In the centre of the village of Rakitna stands a Baroque church of the Holy Cross, first mentioned in 1420. The church has two side chapels and two marble altars. Its main altar is adorned with a painting by Henrik Langus and sculptures by Ivan Šubic. Its Christmas crib, handmade from tree roots, attracts large number of visitors at Christmas time.
