Slowly we are leaving Slovenia. Our last voyage will lead below the breathtaking Mangart mountain in the Julian Alps, which proudly rises in close proximity to the border with Italy.
From the town of Bled we set out for another natural gem in Slovenia - the largest lake in the country. It covers an area of over 3 km². We will talk about Lake Bohinj, whose shores provide a wonderful walk around the Triglav National Park.
After visiting the amazing Vintgar Gorge, we move to Bled. This most important tourist center of the Upper Carniola Region is located in the northwestern part of Slovenia and offers several landmarks.
Our Slovenian adventure full of knowledge continues. After visiting the Kranjska Gora, which is surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, we move on to another natural gem - the Vintgar Gorge (Blejski Vintgar, Vintgar Sotesque).
Kranjska Gora is situated in the north-western part of Slovenia near the Austrian and Italian borders. This town is known mainly due to the winter sports center, where the FIS - World Cup in Alpine Skiing takes place every year.
Triglav National Park is one of the most popular spots in Slovenia. Its name comes after country's highest mountain which is located within the park. Tourists mostly take short trips or climb up the very mountain. It is strictly forbidden to take a one day trip up to Triglav's peak, staying over night is also forbidden (and only allowed in mountain cabins). The hike is very difficult. You can take it from different directions though.
Logar valley is a beautiful valley in the north of Slovenia. A 6 kilometer long path goes through the valley and ends at the rock of limestone massif. It costs 7 euro to enter the Logar Valley if you travel by car. The entrance gate is situated 4 kilometers northwest from the town of Solcava.
So here we are, the last part of our trip across Slovenia. Again we woke up to a cloudy morning but this time it didn’t rain at least. There was an easy trip by a cableway on Vogel and from there we would continue by walk to a vantage point Točka.
Today we will again go to admire beauties of Slovenian nature. From Lake Bled we will move to not less fascinating Lake Bohinj where we will see also the Savica Falls.
If you ever visit Slovenia, do not miss a visit of a beautiful Bled Gorge that is located only few kilometers from well-known Bled.
