Divaca

Divača is a large nucleated village in the Littoral region of Slovenia, near the Italian border. It is the seat of the Municipality of Divača.GeographyDivača lies along the A1 motorway and the old main road from Senožeče to Koper, with a junction that also leads to Lokev. The Vremščica Ridge (1027m) rises to the northeast, Čebulovica Hill (643m) to the north, and Kožlek Hill (517m) to the west. Tilled fields mostly lie to the northeast, and pastures to the northwest and southwest. There is pine forest to the northeast on Čebulovica Hill. Extensive afforstation has taken place in the area, especially in the 1890s and again after the Second World War. There are many caves in the area. Divača Cave (Divaška jama, depth 89m) and Snake Cave (Kačna jama, depth 280m) lie southwest of the village. The latter is considered one of the most attractive caves in the world and was named because of the many snakes there.NameDivača was attested in written sources in 1499 as Diwatsch. The origin of the name is uncertain, but may derive from *Divaťa (vьsь) (literally, 'Divatъ's village') based on the hypocorism Divatъ or Divata.HistoryA tree of heaven plantation stands near the railroad station; it was used to cultivate eri silkworms in the 19th century. A water main was installed for the railroad in 1857, but the town was not connected to the water supply until 1948. Extensive afforestation of abandoned agricultural land took place in the 1890s and before the Second World War. The character of the town changed greatly after the Second World War, with the construction of new apartment buildings, a gym, a public library, stores, and other facilities.
