About Gorenja Trebuša

The area of Trebuša (Trebuško) is located in western Slovenia, where the river Trebušica with its affluents, the largest one being the Hotenjka on the right side, joins the river Idrijca. The villages of Dolenja Trebuša and Gorenja Trebuša are scattered villages in the valleys of the rivers Hotenjka, Trebušica and Idrijca and the surrounding hills of the three Karst plateaus, the Šentviška planota plateau, Trnovski gozd and Banjščice.

The village of Gorenja Trebuša is one of the border villages on the Trnovska planota plateau. This valley can be accessed from the main road which connets Idrija and Tolmin, across a majestic concrete bridge across the river Idrijca, not far from the spot where the river Trebušica joins the river Idrijca. From the valley of Trebušica you can access the valley of Hotenjka and then across the Oblakov vrh peak into the valley Kanomlja, with the river Kanomljica, which joins the river Idrijca in Spodnja Idrija. The rivers of Idrijca and Trebušica are characterized by a few smaller and larger gorges. more

Nature

Trebuša is a junction of three rivers: Idrijca, Trebušica and Hotenjka. The old river courses are still visible, about 10 meters above the present riverbeds. Because of constant water activity and a typical geological structure riverbeds of rivers in the area have a normal V-shaped relief. Flowing waters, streaming from surrounding hills and plateus formed narrow gorges or glens over years.

History

‘Trebuša' has its name after the number three (tre). Trebuša is divided in three parts – the upper valley (Gorenja Trebuša), the lower valley (Dolenja Trebuša) and the middle valley. The middle part of the valley does not bear its own name any more. According to the folk tradition there are three different interpretations of the origin of the name ‘Trebuša’.
