Description

Popovo Polje (Priest's Field) is a classical polje of the Dinaric karst: a fertile and flat plain, hence the name polje (field), and barren limestone hills surrounding it. A river, Trebišnjica river, which flows through the polje from a spring to a sink. But this polje is exceptional, as it is not only one of the largest polje in the world, the Trebišnjica river is the largest sinking river in the world.
