A village which breathes with the mountains!
The settlement of Gozd Martuljek gets its name from a stream, and the house names of the village of Srednji Vrh date from the period of the Turkish invasions. After World War I, this was a vibrant area with flour mills, ironworks, wood skids and charcoal burners, which are now being revived as a part of local tradition. The modern settlement of Gozd Martuljek is a wonderful mixture of unspoilt Alpine nature with mountain waterfalls, rich ethnographic heritage and the Martuljek mountain chain with its central rocky pyramid called Špik, giving the mountain faces a special charm.
The murmur of the numerous waterfalls, which crisscross the world underneath the Martujek group in the summer mostly attracts nature lovers and hikers. In the winter, when the torrential waterfalls from underneath its slopes turn into an icy curtain, it becomes a natural wall for anyone wishing to try themselves at frozen waterfall climbing.
The nicest view of the Martuljek mountain chain can be observed from the village of Srednji Vrh, from the opposite mountain chain of the Karavanke Mountains.
