Parska golobina – A Stone Age Site

Parska golobina site is proof that the municipality of Pivka was inhabited as early as the Old Stone Age. Nine Paleolithic sites were discovered in the Pivka Basin, with Parska golobina being the first to be explored as early as 1950. The initiator of the research was archaeologist and palaeontologist Dr. Srečko Brodar, and his work was continued by geologist Dr. Franc Osole. He completed his work in 1959 with a PhD thesis entitled:Parska golobina – Paleolithic Station on the Southeastern Edge of the Pivka Basin. By doing so, Parska golobina found itself on the map of the oldest discovered traces of man in Slovenia.
