The afternoon sunlight illuminates the top of Anski Vrh hill and reflects off the surface of the rather fast Savinja River. The river is surrounded by cliffs, occasionally creating whitewater sections suitable for kayaking. People from the town of Celje are walking along the Savinja walkways. River banks in any urban habitat are areas of the great architectural interest, especially where urban paths and roads connect with river environment.
