The Spodnjeposavska area is famous for its vineyards, spas and rich cultural attractions.
Spodnjeposavska, meaning "Under Sava" or “Below Sava” in Slovenian, is located at the bottom of Slovenia's longest river, the Sava River. Two other major rivers in the area are the Krka River and the Sotla River. The Krka River, the second longest river in Slovenia, flows through the region Spodnjeposavska and Southeast Slovenia, which connects major cities. Spodnjeposavska is known for its mountainous vineyards the broader wine region that spreads over the historic region of Dolenjska and Bela Krajina as well as to the historic Styria region.
