Polhov Gradec Hills

The Polhov Gradec Hills (Slovene: Polhograjsko hribovje, also Polhograjski Dolomiti, Polhograjci, and Pograjci) are a pre-Alpine hilly region of northwestern Slovenia. To the north, they border the Škofja Loka Hills, whereas to the south, they border the Ljubljana Basin and the Ljubljana Marshes. The central settlement is Polhov Gradec (397 metres or 1,302 feet a.s.l.). The largest current is the river Gradaščica. In 1971, a proposal was put forward to protect the region as a nature park, but it has never been formally adopted.
