A haunted swamp


This truly magical place is called 'Mali plac' and is a unique example of a raised bog, one of southern Europe's few remaining natural habitats of this type. It is the only surviving remnant of once vast, moss-dominated bogs of Ljubljana Marshes.

Mali plac is home to an exceptional diversity of flora and fauna, including carnivorous plants such as the sundew, and is a sanctuary of the endangered European pond turtle. It is strictly protected nature reserve - best viewed from the air. :-)
