Iška

The Iška (pronounced [ˈiːʃka]) is a river of central Slovenia. Part of the river valley—the Iška Gorge[2] or Iška Canyon[3] (Slovene: Iški vintgar)—separates Lower Carniola from Inner Carniola.[2]:82[4] The river is 31 km (19 mi) long.[1] After flowing past Strahomer, the river follows an almost straight line and joins the Ljubljanica River, and therefore belongs to the Sava and Black Sea basins.
