Both the natural bridges are worth a visit and the stream is good to dip your feet in on a hot summerday. Perfect for hikers/mountain bikers!

If you want to go on a walk in nature, you should go to Rakov Škocjan. And very impressive is also "The Small natural bridge" and "The Big natural bridge" too. It is a cave system with an underground river, and it is really beautiful....More

Despite being slightly sickish, we very much appreciated the different Karst features you could see in Rakov Skocjan (me more so than my girlfriend, but understandable, as I am a geographer). Very spectacular for me to see Karst springs, rivers dissapearing in caves, natural bridges...More

Well worth visiting. if you've got your own transport. The walk takes about 2 hours round trip. It can be done starting at either end, but Best to start at the 'bottom' end, where the trail markers begin, by the 'little natural bridge'. When you...More
