Šebrelje – Padstanajca
The most prominent waterfall on the Sjavnca stream is the lower waterfall, which was interesting to archaeologists during archaeological excavations in Divje Babe. During the Second World War, a communist party school was in its immediate vicinity. The school was discovered by the German army, which burnt down the set up barracks, as well as the village of Šebrelje, as a form of punishment. The waterfall runs like a ‘horse’s tail’ over a 28 m high overhang, below which there is a small cave. The waterfall is little known to hikers, but much more famous among ice climbers, as the stream freezes in the winter and the rock becomes an ice climbing spot. The Šebrelje-born alpinist, Slavko Svetičič–Slavc, used to spend a lot of his time on this wall. In the upper part of the waterfall, the stream runs through a narrow groove, and falls as a ‘horse’s tail’ on a rock where it is dispersed into a ‘fan’. The overhang makes it possible to walk behind the waterfall. Below the waterfall, there are beautiful rockfalls, similar to boulders.
