Triglav National Park

Triglav National Park is one of the most visited natural attractions in Slovenia so we set off extra early on our journey explore this beautiful natural wonderland. Our first stop was Lake Bohinj. It is the biggest lake in the park and was shaped by a glacier. It is home to 10 species of fish. The fish were once again easy to spot by the crystal clear edge of the lake.


Perched romantically at the edge of the lake across a stone bridge was the church of St. John the Baptist. It was easy to see why it is one of the most photographed churches in Slovenia!!!!! It is believed to have been built in the late 10th – mid 11th century. The artwork on the exterior show its age.


On our drive further on towards Savica Waterfall we couldn’t help stop along the way to explore hidden pockets of this beautiful clear lake.


We parked at the fee car park at the entrance to the 20 minutes walk to Savica Slap (Waterfall). The entrance fee to the walk cost us 3 euros each which we were happy to pay as the walking paths were extremely well maintained. This was no, Walk of the Gods!!! Thank God for that!!! We were inspired by all the loud cascading pools of water that flowed freely down the mountain path near the beginning of the path. All we could hear was gushing water as we walked the pathway up the mountain.

As we reached the waterfall all we could hear was the loud thunder of water pounding onto the rocks below in our ears. Above us towered the sheer mountain cliffs and behind us was the valley with its beautiful panoramic views. The journey of the fall mesmerising you in your tracks. Time stood still and we took in the torrent of water plugging its way through a carved hole in the mountain. What a beast!!! Not to be messed with!!! This was truly tranquil experience.


Just walking this trail was a pleasure surrounded by nature until we hit the home stretch and were swarmed by a huge tourist group making their way along the trail body to body, loud and noisy!! Just like a school excursion where I usually need to take a headache tablet at the end of the day. What a difference experience we would have had if we hadn’t chosen to leave early. It would have been a real spoiler!!

We were one of the lucky ones as hiking early meant that we only share this stunning nature terrain with very few, which made it a relaxing a serene walk.


Once leaving the walking trail we admire the tiny stones that had been stacked in piles to make a valley of tiny rock sculptures amongst the boulders.


The other nature area we would have liked to have explored was Vintgar Gorge just 4 kms away from Lake Bled. It was not meant to be as the trail was closed!!!

I have to say a have fallen in love with the dark chocolate kinder bueno bars and the come in 3 packs. Just what you need after a hike!!! Maybe not but they are delicious.
