Nowhere is the terrain of the Polhov Gradec hills within such close reach as it is around Črni Vrh – a picturesque small village that is home to St. Lenart's church, which stands on an 861 metre-high slope above the Velika Božna gorge.

Have you ever mixed, kneaded and baked your own bread – the way that our mothers and grandmothers did?
