Karst is rocky land where water acting on the limestone creates special surface shapes, caves and underground water streams. The word is derived from an old expression for a stone and it originally meant a stony (rocky) area.. The name Karst, which was derived from  that expression, denotes the region between the Gulf of Trieste and the Vipava Valley and between the Soča Valley and Brkini. Geological phenomena are so typical of this area that the expressions “Karst phenomena” and also simply “Karst”  are used all over Europe to denote all areas with similar characteristics which were discovered later. When similar phenomena were noticed in other parts of the world, they were described as Karst and since the previous century the term Karst has been used in all professional literature.
