Slovenia: Exceptionally Beautiful Bled Gorge
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.
The last trip we took during our several days long stop in Bled was an easy walk with a goal to reach an exceptionallybeuatiful Bled Gorge (in Slovenian Soteska Vintgar).
Jak do soutěsky dostat
Since this natural gem lays only 4 kilometers southwest from Lake Bled, nearby which we were accommodated, we decided to walk there. There is also a village named Vintgar, not particularly interestant however, a bus goes there regularly from Bled. So if you prefer not to take a long walk, you can go there by a bus or by your own car. A public parking lot is located right by the entrance to the Bled Gorge. We chose to take a walk on a road that led through the Podhom village. It was a pleasant but a bit longer walk than we initially expected. On the way we had had some beautiful views over the landscape or the Bled Castle. A not so much frequented road took us to a place where some lady in a wooden stand sold tickets to the Bled Gorge.
You pay many in Slovenia for beauty
The Bled Gorge , which is a part of Triglav National Park , belongs to the largest tourist attractions in the area and its entrance is feed as well as many other natural attractions in Slovenia. Fortunately, it was only few Euro per capita, so our vacation budget wasn’t harmed much
When by the box office we bought a nice fridge magnet and were surprised a large concentration of people. Despite the summer season was nearing its end the entrance and the Bled Gorge as a whole was simply overcrowded. So the only con of this amazing natural wonder was unbelievable number of people.
The Bled Gorge is 1,6 kilometers long and in its end there is a 16 meters high noisy Šum Falls. Even on this side of the Bled Gorge there is a box office that has even a snack bar and a small shop with souvenirs. Tourists move in the whole gorge on small wooden bridges above the water. We met also an organized group of retirees, Asian women wearing only flip-flops, or a mum who had one child in a child seat and other was holding firmly her hand. So we sincerely recommend this walk to everyone who loves the nature regardless of age or physical condition.
Next time we will move to a beautiful Lake Bohinj and will visit Savica Falls - another part of Slovenia that didn’t disappoint us

Everyone of us imagines something different when thinking about an ideal vacation. Someone likes to lie on a beach; some breaks his limits when climbing on mountains, or throws away his responsibility and goes to wild parties. For me it is a combination of everything mentioned above – from beaches, through crazy sports, to exploration of beauties of nature and tasting local cuisine.
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.
The last stop of our journey across three countries was Mountain Erberg located in Steiermark. It is known as one of the larges European iron ore sites and it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole region.
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.
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.
We continue in our excursion across three states also today. Our direction is Austria, the las country we had visited during our 10day journey. In today’s article we will look on scaled replicas of the most important architectonic wonders that are located in a famous theme park Minimundus, Klagenfurt.
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 not move anywhere. We will spend the whole day in Bled, a town that is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovenia. We will set out for a visit of one of the most beautiful and precious landmarks. We will see a monumental castle on a cliff above Lake Bled and we will visit a local market.
We always just travel throughout Slovenia, maybe the reason was we were in hurry to get to Croatia or on our way back home. Even we have heard a lot about its beauties, we never managed to find few days or hours, at least, to stop and explore. At last, we changed it and a part of a late summer vacation we spent in Slovenia.
Postojna town is located in southwest Slovenia. Fans of traveling and the nature know the town thanks to its unique cave system – Postojnska jama. We managed to visit this natural sight at the end of summer. Frankly, it was a wonderful experience.
Slovenian Predjama Castle is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating castles in the world. It is hidden in a town of the same name, which is only 10 kilometers away from Postojna, a popular tourist town known for its unique cave system.
As we decided to spend few days in Slovenia it wouldn’t go without visiting probably the most Slovenian lake Bled. The lake is considered one of Slovenian symbols. This beautiful lake is located in the eastern part of Julian Alps right by a noisy town of the same name.
We woke up to beautiful, however, calm morning. We ate something, checked our backpack if there were things necessary since we intended to spend the whole day out, and we set out to the lake. That day we decided to visit a church on the island in the middle of the lake and spend the afternoon in the town.
