Kržunc lies in the forest between Radovica and Krašnji vrh villages in the municipality of Metlika. The spring once served as a watering place and washing area for nearby residents, as evidenced by well-preserved concrete troughs. Kržunc lost its significance with the construction of the water supply network.
The water from the spring flows forward along a shallow riverbed and sinks into the ground about 25 m away from the concrete troughs. In the vicinity of Kržunc is the Turine stream, which once served as a source of drinking water and once operated a mill. Kržunc is part of a shorter mountain trail from Radovica to Krašnji vrh. The mountain trail leads past the pond and spring Orehovec to the lookout tower on Krašnji vrh from which there is a view of Bela krajina.
What to do
Concrete troughs are free to view.
Please be careful through the woods as the ground is usually wet.
Be careful near the concrete troughs because the collector is missing a cover.
Protect nature and this location for future generations.
