GeographyEdit

Vrh lies northwest of the village center of Gombišče, above a karst solution valley and the village of Velike Dole.[4] Vrh Hill (elevation: 390.6 meters or 1,281 feet) rises just east of the houses in the settlement. Šmarnica Creek, which has its source at springs in neighboring Stehanja Vas, flows through the settlement and then to Velike Dole, where it disappears into the ground.

NameEdit

The name Vrh (from the common noun vrh 'peak') is common in Slovenia, referring to the local geography.[5]

HistoryEdit

Vrh was annexed by Gombišče in 1953, ending its existence as a separate settlement.[6][7]
