Long Description:
These nice examples of potholes are located in small town of Ogulin in Croatia. Potholes are cut into stream bed by the water currents of River Dobra.

Potholes are interesting geological features that are also called rock-cut basin. They are cylindrical depressions cut into stream beds. Potholes are created by kolks; powerful vortices within the water currents which spin small boulders around, eroding out these rock basins by their abrasive action. Potholes are frequently found in streams and rivers with a relatively soft rock substrates such as limestones and sandstones, same as potholes at this waymark as River Dobra stream bed is made of limestone.

The unusual and man-made appearance of potholes has led to various folk-tales becoming associated with them, such as their identification as petrosomatoglyphs, including knee prints, elbow prints, etc. of saints, heroes, kings or supernatural beings.
