About village

Skiing in winter, idyllic nature with the abundant medicinal herbs and wild fruits in summer, a bustle of mountaineers along the well-marked trail paths throughout the year, the stillness of vast forests and meadows, the fascination of historic, ethnological and natural curiosities.

You will be able to experience this and much more in the Novaki region.

Each Novaki visitor will be welcomed with a drop of the homemade Pennyroyal-Brandy "Polajevec".

Each year, hosts of people visit the "Franja Hospital", a well-preserved monument of humanity and sacrifice during the World War 2. It is accessible through the Pasice gorge, a natural curiosity, chiselled by a torrent full of cascades, rapids and pools between the steep slopes of the mighty Veliki Njivec and Mali Njivec.

Even more people are revisiting the popular Ski Centre of Cerkno, over the 60-hectare ski-slopes with the guaranteed snow and diversion and most up-to-date skiing facilities, the inviting refreshment bars and restaurants.

The first settlers are mentioned in the "Loka Land Register" of the ancient 1290. Even now you will be able to see some remaining old farmhouses and watermills.

Do treat yourselves to this valuable experience and, at least for a moment, forget that you are pressed for time! Make a halt on your way along the popular transversal from Idrija, Cerknica and Škofja Loka, to Blegoš or Porezen.

Avail yourselves of the sunny strawberries and bilberries on our meadows, exchange a few remarks on the weather with our haymakers, pick an arnica (Arnica montana) or St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum), take in a breath of fresh air and, from the mountaintops, enjoy the view of natural beauty far and near.
