The village is positioned between two solitary hills, Gulč and Veliki vrh. The old village centre has some lovely arranged farms and the surrounding solitary hills serve as the viewpoints where, among other peculiarities, some interesting archaeological remains were found. At the top of the solitary hill Gulč, the Church of the Holy Spirit, built in 1526, is located. A special feature of the church are frescoes on tufa stones, the work of a local artist Izidor Mole. Gršak Homestead, built in 1863, is located in Vnanje Gorice as well. There is also the starting point of Ašič botanical educational path which connects the settlements of the Ljubljana Marshes via side paths.
Notranje Gorice is the oldest settlement in the Marshes. There is a chapel in the middle of the village, built in the memory of the plague and small pox epidemics which ravaged between 1850 and 1860. The Church of St. Martin is known for its priest and writer, Janez Jalen, who wrote the novel Bobri (Beavers). In the vicinity of Notranje Gorice, the archaeologists found the oldest remains of the crannogs, where the crannog dwellers lived in the Stone Age.
The solitary hill Plešivica that rises above Notranje Gorice is the highest point of the Ljubljana Marshes. In the central part of Notranje Gorice, an abandoned quarry was cut into the hill in 1848, when the construction of the railway line Ljubljana-Trieste over the Marshes took place.
You can see the mighty Baroque Church of St. Vitus . The Baroque church consists of the belfry, dome-shaped vaulted nave with the ground plan of irregular octagon and octagonal presbytery with extensions. The nave and presbytery are painted with frescoes by various painters from different periods of time. The church has a rich Baroque (and that of later periods) interior (Source: www.dedi.si, 26. 9. 2012).
Gornji Ig is the settlement in the Krim-Mokrec Hills. Just above the village, Črtež Hill rises (765 m), while below Velika and Mala Pasica stalactite karst caves are located. A forest path to Krvavice partisan hospital leads from the village towards south. While towards east, the terrain steeply descends to the lower part of Iški vintgar Gorge. The Church of St. Leonard is opposite the cemetery in Gornji Ig. The medieval church was destroyed in 1942, but was completely renovated between 1997 and 1998.
Iški vintgar Gorge
The Iška River, which flows with its tributaries from Bloška planota Plateau, has carved 300 to 400 m deep gorge which is the sharpest natural border between two Slovenian regions: Dolenjska and Notranjska. The dolomite gorge is very picturesque and the banks offer a true botanical treasury. The clean river flows over the rocky barricades in waterfalls and cascades and occasionally stagnates in tempting pools. E-6 European footpath runs from the inn along the left bank and you'll have to wade a few metres across the cold river at the end of the comfortable road in order to proceed. If you stay on the left bank, a marked but steep path will take you to the ruins of Krvavice partisan hospital.Iški vintgar Gorge is one of the most popular hiking spots in the vicinity of the Ljubljana Marshes. The gorge of the Iška River gave shelter to Ljubljana woodsmen already at the beginning of the 20th century, when they naively tried to return back to nature, left the city life behind, worshipped the sun, collected herbs and lived in simple shelters.
