Listen to the beat of your heart

Nature's serenity calms the heart, but the call of adventure excites it.

The highest parts of Slovenia enchant visitors with steep cliffs whose almost white limestone gleams in the sun. Strands of emerald waters wind below them…

Sunny Alps Soča. Peaks that pierce the sky. Valleys that reach the sea. Jewels of natural and cultural heritage. Lakes, waterfalls, and rivers.

Mount Triglav, the highest mountain of Slovenia, links worlds of diversities. On one side lies the Upper Sava Valley with jewel-like lakes such as the elegant Lake Bled with a unique island, and Lake Bohinj with its idyllic romantic atmosphere. On the other side, below Slovenia’s highest mountain pass is the inviting valley of the emerald Soča River . Its rapids are home to the indigenpous Soča trout, while the peaks of the surrounding mountains are reflected in its surface. The world beneath Mt Triglav abounds in natural and cultural features of the Triglav National Park , one of the largest nature reserves in Europe. In Trenta, the Juliana Alpine Botanical Gardens guard unique alpine plants. On the way from Trenta through Bovec to Tolmin traces of the fiercest battles of WWI and the Soča (Isonzo) Front, which is documented in the award-winning Kobarid Museum .
