The source of the Count's water is inaccessible due to fallen trees and badly damaged path!


According to local tradition this water was carried to the Tolmin count at the castle on Kozlov rob. He believed that this water would keep him forever young.

The Grofova voda (Count’s water) spring is situated in the Sopotnica stream gorge above the village of Gabrje. It has a constant temperature, flow, colour and taste. Drinking this water refreshes and has a beneficial effect on general well-being.

The Count’s water is considered to have healing characteristics. It is clean and rich in minerals. It has a positive effect on the entire body. According to measurements using radiesthesia it is one of the best in the world. Drinking this water refreshes us and gives us strength.

Not far from the spring there is a thick and vital tree, a mountain elm tree (Ulmus glabra). The water from the spring runs underneath the tree, enriching it with energy. The elm tree with its positive energy affects all seven chakras.
