This area includes the villages which lie northwest of Bled towards Pokljuka. The road forks in Spodnje Gorje - one turn leads to the well-known Vintgar gorge
or through Poljane towards Jesenice, whilst the other turn leads to Zgornje Gorje and further towards Pokljuka plateau. Zgornje Gorje, a densely settled village at the top of a gently sloping ridge, is the central settlement with the parish Church of St. George (sv. Jurij). Not far away, near the small village of Krnica, lies the interesting Pokljuška ravine, also known as Pokljuška Luknja (Pokljuka Hole). From Krnica a narrow Radovna valley leads to the foothills of Slovenia's highest mountain Triglav. The valley is full of meadows wherw cows still grasp today. Gorje's good sunny location invited people to settle here in the ancient past - evidence of which is provided by finds in the Poljšica or Poglejska Cerkev - as the natives call one of the two Karst caves behind the village of Poljšica - these date from late Paleolithic and Mesolithic times. Several Old Slavic gravesites have been found in Spodnje Gorje. The symbol of Gorje is a bell, because in old times the craft of bell-making flourished in these places, and the production of cow bells is now being revived. Blacksmiths, workshops, sawmills and cheese factories are also worth visiting.
Railway : The nearest two train stations are Bled Jezero and Podhom which are the stations on the railway connection Jesenice - Nova Gorica. Occasionally trains drive all the way to Slovenian coast (to Koper city). International railway stations are in Lesce and Jesenice. Those two connect Austria (Villach) with Ljubljana.
Bus : There is a direct bus line connecting Krnica and Zgornje Gorje with Bled, Radovljica, Begunje and Jesenice. Buses drive daily on every hour during day time. Bled is the nearest town in the area, and is well connected with all the major cities in the northwest part of Slovenia.
