For millions of years the Ponikvica Stream ran through the Ponikvanski kras Plateau, trickled through limestone and, in the heart of the Lower Savinja Vally, carved the magnificent karst cave Pekel. With a bit of imagination, one can discern an image of the devil above the cave entrance. Also, in the winter when the temperature in the cave is higher than the temperature outside, vapours can be seen coming out of the cave. That made people afraid of the cave, hence the name Pekel Cave (eng. hell).
