In the direction of Žiri the village Dole offers a view of the village Zavratec, which greets the visitor as a friendly settlement in a picturesque valley among the hills above the valley of the river Sora. From the villages Dole and Zavratec you can enjoy wide views of the pre-Alpine hill ranges (Blegoš) all the way to the Triglav in the Julian Alps, the Karavanke mountain range and the Kamnik Alps. On the southern side there are the hills of Mravljiše (865 m), the water divide between the Adriatic and the Black Seas.

The area, well known for smuggling (contraband) during the times of the Rapallo border, is nowadays great for walks and shorter hiking tours. The adjacent karstic phenomenon Matjaževe kamre (Matthias Chambers), where pre-historic findings were discovered, is very interesting for the visitors too.

In the centre of the village there is the baroque parish church of Sv. Urh (St. Ulrich) with the adjunct small chapels. Many old stone-cut items (portals) and farm frescoes have been preserved in the village. The extremely active local cultural association organizes various events and painters' colonies.
