Mirna gora (Semič)
Mirna Gora is located at an altitude of 1047 m. The forested peak, located on the south-eastern edge of Kočevski rog, will impress you not only with a wonderful view of the entire Bela Krajina and the wider area, but also with excellent dishes on the spoons (and even better, homemade sweets).

At the top of the village stands the Trinity Church, above it a grassy peak with a lookout tower. You can start in Metlika, 10 kilometers away, or in the neighboring village of Radovice.
Urban's trail (Metlika)
Urban's trail is a particularly interesting exploration in the fall, as you can pick chestnuts and other autumnal delicacies while wandering the Metlika vineyards, and along the way come across one of the brick house owners who will bake them for you if possible and provide Offer you a glass of young wine along the way.
We recommend that you park your car in Metlika at the Pungart parking lot.
