The village by the Idrija – Kalce (the so-called Keltika) main road has developed at an important junction of old transport ways between Idrija and the region of Notranjska, between the Vipava valley and the basin of Žiri. 

You will experience Godovič as a pleasant village among fields and meadows, surrounded by woods and forests. In recent years the village has grown considerably, mostly due to the newly built and established industrial plants and the new settlers who have built their houses in the village.

In the village itself and in its close surroundings there are several natural and cultural monuments. The karst plateau is full of sinkholes, disappearing streams and caves. On the way towards the village Medvedje Brdo you will even see fossilized footprints of a dinosaur from the Upper Triassic. Extremely valuable archaeological findings on the Jelenšek Hill (817 m) on the northern side of the village have revealed traces of a pre-Roman Celtic necropolis of the Santa Lucia type. 

The main natural sight of Godovič is without doubt the unusual spruce ' Kačja smreka' (snake spruce), growing to the right of the street tunnel by the Česnik farm. This extraordinary tree, over 9 meters high, has a thin trunk and up to four-meter long branches, bent like snakes, growing in all directions.
