Favorite thing: This area was very isolated for centuries, the road across Vrsic mountain pass which was built in 1916 enabled locals to reach other parts of Slovenia more easily, but still this road stays closed during winter - it is impossible to clear the show and ice on such a steep curvy road.
So locals, "Trentarji", always had to rely on themselves to survive in this harsh environment.
Their main source of income was production and sales of goat and sheep cheese, wool, lumbering and wildlife hunting. On their very limited fields they grew just enough potatoes and cabbage to survive through the winter.
In 19th century, funny dressed people started emerging on their doorsteps asking for directions and offering money for lodging, food and guided tours.
This was the beginning of tourism here.
Some of those early guides are still remembered, like Anton Tozbar - Spik Medved (the Bear) who's lower jaw got ripped away by the bear but he survived and kept on guiding tourists.
The number of inhabitants is still decreasing, but hopefully the tourism will enable more people to make a decent living and stay here.
