Walking The Vintgar Gorge

One of the most popular touristic spots in Slovenia is Lake Bled… with in the middle “Church of the Assumption”. Another nice spot and natural wonder is the 1,6Km long trail Vintgar Gorge. Follow the wooden paths, hear the rushing Radovna river, smell the nature and end up with an fantastic view on the Sum waterfall. How to get there? Walk  from Bled town to the entrance of Vintgar Gorge and enjoy the silence and scenery… definitely worth it!

The way to Vintgar Gorge

When I completed the trail… followed the Rebr road straight to Vintgar town were I took the train to Jesenice, spend rest of my day there in this  industrytown located in the Upper Sava Valley, close to the border of Austria. When it got dark, catched the last train to Bled. Lunch In Jesenice, visited a Military Memorial park… half day is enough for Jesenice.

Jesenice Town

I’ve made this trip in autumn 2013,and still Slovenia made me a big impression: pure, nature, silence,relax… tiny green country… Europe’s green lung. Slovenia in the autumn period…. just do it!

  1. Ahh, thank you for glimpses of my country of origin. I’ve enjoyed them very much and they transfer the feel of Slovenia very well. I’m just sorry that you had to finish the lovely day in Jesenice of all places 😀 I haven’t been there for a long time but it used to be the ugliest thing imaginable. Next time, Kranjska Gora! I’ll share this on Twitter and FB.

      1. Oh, yes, Kranj is one thing, and Kranjska Gora is something else. 🙂 Skiing competition are held there, and Planica – the skijumping venue – is close by. I spent many New Year’s Eves in Kranjska Gora. It is magical in winter and an excellent spot in all other seasons as well. Do you often come to Slovenia?
