The famous English scientist Sir Humphry Davy visited Slovenia three times: in 1819, 1827 and 1828. He took with him the beauties of the Sava Dolinka River, Zelenci natural reserve and “his old nest”, the village of Podkoren.

After the First World War, this plaque was turned around and the Slovenian inscription engraved. Read it!
