Welcome to the Embrace of Forests
Kostel settlements are sparsely populated, since the landscape is strongly wooded, and the karst soil is less present. The area, is characterised more than by human settlements primarily by karst plateaus with numerous sinkholes and peaks and the River Kolpa, which, due to its purity, is the realm of animals and vegetation. But in Kostel you cannot pass its hospitable inhabitants. Chat with them and get to know the special dialect, which has developed into a kind of speech without the standard dual grammatical form found in Slovenian, due to Croatia’s proximity.
