The beginnings of Škofja Loka, a town at the confluence of the Selška Sora and the Poljanska Sora Rivers, date back to 973. The Bishops of Freising, who ruled the Škofja Loka region for 830 years, made a significant impact on the town. The abundant cultural heritage, set in beautiful natural surroundings, gave the town its nickname – The Gallery in Nature. The picturesque façades of the houses gave rise to another nickname – Colourful Loka.
