Alpine jewels

The mighty peaks, which offer incredible views and crystal-clean water, and which sparkle in the sunshine, are a verdant green landscape whose tranquillity will inspire you and whose energy will uplift you. All this awaits in the sanctuary of the Julian Alps, where the peaks can reach as high as 2500 m and more. The king of this range is Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain and the symbol of the Slovenian nation. Experience a genuine contact with nature in Triglav National Park, which in addition to high mountains also features picturesque Alpine valleys, rivers and lakes. The largest of these are Lake Bohinj and the idyllic Lake Bled, with Slovenia’s only natural island. Follow the emerald-green beauty of the Soča River all the way to the vineyard hills of Brda. Put on your hiking shoes and explore the treasure trove of natural beauty in the Julian Alps.
