Kocevje - Rinza River 

Interactive map with sights

The Rinza River is the only river in the Kocevje region beside the bordering Kolpa river. It is clearly a karst river. The Rinza River has many springs and the biggest one near the village of Mrtvice is called Reberski studenec. After a short flow on the surface it disappears underground at the end of the Kocevje Plains. In the old times the river flowing through Kocevje represented a defence ditch surrounding the castle with the town centre, creating an island. After the threads of invasion were over the ditch was filled up and nowadays the Rinza River forms a bend around the old town centre. The river was kept on surface with the help of dams. In the period of industrialisation there were many sawmills and mills operating along it. Today is polluted as the town's sewer system still partially flows into it.
