Savinja

Savinja (also in some older English texts Sann) is the river in Northeast Slovenia which streams mostly in the Upper and Lower Savinja valley (Slovene Zgornja in Spodnja Savinjska dolina) and through the cities of Celje and Laško[?]. Savinja flows to the Sava river at Zidani most[?] ("Stonebridge"). Many times it overflows as did in the sixties and in 1990 and 1995.

The stream is created by the Rinka waterfall which flows along a regulated riverbed to the lower end of the Logarska Valley (Logarska dolina), where it confluences with the Jezera stream from which point it becomes the Savinja river. This source has been proclamed as a natural heritage[?]. The Rinka waterfall is one of the most beautiful and known waterfalls in Slovenia. It is also a popular touristic destination. It is the highest waterfall of the 20 waterfalls in the Logarska valley. It is visited in all seasons of the year. In the winter time it is popular for the ice-climbers. The best view to the waterfall is from the peak of Kamniško sedlo ("rocky saddle").
