The Rinža (German: Rinse, Rinnse) is a river of Slovenia. It is 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) long and flows through Kočevje.[1] It is the main watercourse of the Kočevje Polje and it is a losing stream.[2] A few kilometers downstream of Kočevje, it goes subterranean. It emerges again as the Bilpa, a tributary of the Kolpa.
