The Lim valley
by admin | May 21, 2015
The Lim valley (Limska draga or Limska dolina) is the 35 km long valley of the river Pazincica, which transforms into the Lim bay (Limski zaljev),
a 10 kilometer long estuary. The Croats sometimes also call it Limski kanal ("Lim Channel"), due to its narrow width. The estuary is sometimes called a fjord,
although it is not in fact a fjord but a ria, because it was not carved by a glacier but by the river eroding the ground on its way to the Adriatic Sea, when the sea level was lower.
