Overview

"Divje babe" is a palaeontological archaeological site, a Karst cave in steep rocky slopes above the Indrijca Valley. The most spectacular find was 55,000 years old bone flute, made from the bone of cave bear, in which Neanderthal recessed four holes. Bone flute is the oldest musical instrument found in the world, that is why Sebrelje or Cerkno region is called "the cradle of world music".
