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 April to October.
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.
All vehicles must be left at designated and marked parking spaces. Free parking lot is at the end of the Dolenje Jezero village. We suggest you park there and then continue your trip by bicycle or by foot.
Motorised vehicles belong to the roads. In Slovenia, driving in protected natural surroundings is prohibited by law.
If you have your own boat, carry it from the parking lot to the water. Observe traffic signs, access to water by car is usually not possible, except exceptionally during the period, when the lake is completely flooded.
The central navigation area covers the area between Jamski zaliv, Rešeto, the bridge on the road Dolenje Jezero – Gorica (right side of the road, when looking from Dolenje Jezero village), and also the area between Vodonos and the imaginary line that connects Slivnica to the bridge near Otok, and the area known as Zadnji kraj. Navigation in the central area is permitted, when the water levels on the water height gauge at Dolenje Jezero are over 150 cm.
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.
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.
Let’s not take living beings out of their living space. Flowers should be observed in nature, so plants can complete their life cycle in nature.
When picking mushrooms, fishing and other leisure activities, we follow the rules and thus allow other visitors a pleasant experience.
All visitors to the park are also asked to strictly follow the recommendations of the NIJZ when visiting the park, due to the spread of SARS-CoV-2 infections:
