Tu pride flash

It is a term that has entered international usage as "karst". It denotes an area of permeable karstic limestone. In geological terms it denotes a dry surface area, underground rivers, caves and intermittent lakes. Slovenian Kras has been defined by geologists as classical or primary karst. A beautiful picturesque environment, it is characterized by diverse geological formations, periodically vanishing and reappearing rivers and lakes, chasms and amazing cave systems. Stone is the main building material, lending the countryside its distinctive character.
