Unbearable heat and high temperatures are an incentive for many people to look for popular places to refresh. As the main watercourse of the Poljanska Valley, Poljanska Sora river offers as many as five natural swimming areas, where you can enjoy fresh air to the full and at the same time enjoy the sounds of the slow tinkling of the river. All natural swimming areas in the Poljanska Valley are free of charge and at one's own risk.
1 Natural swimming area Škribovc
In the Trebija village, you will find the natural swimming area named Škribovc. The path to the swimming area takes you past the first of the five wooden covered bridges over the Poljanska Sora river, which are characteristic for the Poljanska Valley. The recently renovated swimming area covers more than two thousand square meters and is equipped with two stone tables, chairs, and waste bins. For some activity, there is also a volleyball court and rope walking, named »slackline«. You can park your vehicles next to the Pizzeria Marco Polo, where you can also get refreshments, if you get hungry while swimming.

2 Natural swimming area Podgora
If you continue your journey from Trebija towards Podgora, after only a few minutes of driving you can turn right from the main road to the second covered wooden bridge over Poljanska Sora river. You can park your vehicle in front of the bridge. The footpath then leads you to the left towards the natural swimming area Podgora. The latter is a bit more »wild«, but therefore no less attractive for relaxing and enjoying in peace and beauty of unspoiled nature.
