Oplotnica Gorge

http://www.destinacija-rogla.si/modules/store/uploads/maj-00.jpgThe Oplotnica gorge has been arranged for the purpose of preserving the natural environment along the Oplotnica stream, which was very important for the local population in the past, since it presented an important source of income. At one point in the past, over 30 saws and mills stood along the stream. The area surrounding the stream is rich with plant species and the path also enables education and information about local life in the past with the help of educational tours and workshops.

Chislakite Deposits

In Cezlak above Oplotnica, there is magmatic rock and plutonic rock called tonalite, which is mined in the local quarry. Just next to the quarry, we find Chislakite (green plutonic rock), the only deposit of which is here in Cezlak. Chislakite is a somewhat less durable rock than tonalite and deposits of better quality have not been found. It is a magmatic rock from pale green augite, dark green hornblende, white plagioclase and decorative white aplitic veins, which was named after the Cezlak settlement by Professor Vasilij V. Nikitin in 1939.
