Classical Karst

.

Classical Karst (in Slovene language: Klasicni kras) is part of the Tentative list of Slovenia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List. Parts of this site have already been inscribed under Skocjan Caves WHS.

The Classical Karst comprises 4 areas of Dinaric Karst, showing all its typical karst phenomena and processes. One of those, the Kras plateau, gave its name to “karst" - the scientific name for a special type of landscape that developed in carbonate rock. The landscape historically also has played an important role in the biological research of the underground world.
