Directing the increased number of park visitors
It is prohibited to drive between Dolenje Jezero and Otok village, every Sunday, between 8:00 – 21:00, except for local residents of village Otok and private land owners around Cerknica Lake. This rule applies from March 15th to November 15th.
Hikers and cyclists: road next to Lake Cerknica, between villages Dolenje Jezero and Otok, is also intended for motor vehicles. Stick to the right side of the road.
Notranjska Regional Park is an area of protected nature and one of the hotspots of Slovenian and European biodiversity, so we treat living beings and inanimate nature with respect. Park is home to an extraordinary number of species of organisms, many of them endangered or protected.
We do not disturb or frighten animals by screaming or hunting. Observe them with eyes not with the hands, as we can seriously injure them with clumsy handling.
In Notranjska Regional Park we are guests of nature and, as in other protected areas, we do not leave garbage behind. There are no waste bins in the area of Lake Cerknica and along footpaths and cycle paths. We are in the wildlife zone, and some animals might confuse some types of waste for their food.
Waste bins are at the entry point (parking lot at the end of the village Dolenje Jezero) and next to the parking lot at the cemetery, so visitors are asked to take garbage from the natural environment and throw it there.
