The  Julian Alps

The Julian Alps are the southeasternmost part of the Alpine arc and at the same time the mountain range that marks the border between Slovenia and Italy.

Julian Alps They are usually divided into the Eastern and Western Julian Alps. The Eastern Julian Alps, which make up approximately three-quarters of the range and cover an area of 1,542 km2, lie entirely on the Slovenian side of the border and are the largest and highest Alpine range in Slovenia. The highest peak is Triglav (2,864 metres), but there are more than 150 other peaks over 2,000 metres high. The emerald river Soča rises on one side of the Julian Alps, in the Primorska region; the two headwaters of the river Sava – the Sava Dolinka and the Sava Bohinjka – rise on the other side, in the Gorenjska region.

JULIAN ALPS

Triglav

Skiing in the mountains

The Julian Alps take their name from the medieval Forum Iulii, present-day Friuli. The name originally referred only to the town of Cividale del Friuli, founded by Julius Caesar in 52 BC. The Julian Alps are built of Mesozoic marine sediments. Tectonic forces created fractures and folding and carved out magnificent rock faces and peaks. The varied flora and fauna rightly enjoy considerable fame. Natural riches, plentiful water sources and a favourable climate created conditions for early settlement in this wonderful corner of Europe. The Julian Alps are one of the world’s treasures - a challenge to every climber and a source of pleasure for every traveller.

In the modern world it is easy to get fed up with the rapid pace of life. Constantly under stress, we never have enough time to relax and find peace. In the Julian Alps, time stops for a moment or two. The mighty mood of nature settles in the climber’s soul at any time of year, on any path, whether we are alone or in company.

We Slovenes are a mountain nation. That is the reason we chose Triglav for our symbol. Mountains have given a characteristic stamp to the people of Slovenia. Very early on, this awareness and wisdom led Slovenes to create protected areas of nature in the Julian Alps. We know that what nature and the original settlers have created over the course of long centuries must be protected. At the same time it is our duty to show the world the priceless gifts which have so nobly shaped our national character. That is why one should go to the Julian Alps in a solemn, dignified manner, without placing a burden on nature. All we should take from the mountains are beautiful views, silence and peace - the basic elements of inner strength, creativity and self-awareness. The Julian Alps are a natural doctor for the aching soul of modern, urban man. May the Julian Alps fill you with their powerful, mysterious forces, be it during holidays with your family or friends, or even alone, or during a one-day excursion or as part of a break during a business trip.


BLED

Lake Bled

Vintgar

Lake Bled and its island, the castle and the town itself appear to us like a vision on every visit. A pleasant tale of outstanding natural bounteousness, sweetness and beauty. You can swim or skate or row, or ring the bell in the little church on the island. You can enjoy one of the numerous events that take place here, or walk or run round the lake. These natural marvels have been given added distinction by the visits of crowned heads, great artists, the doctors who opened a sunny and airy health resort here, and the huge number of newlyweds who have taken their vows here. Thanks to its natural characteristics, Bled is the ideal starting point for hiking tours (Soteska Vintgar, Pokluška Luknja, Jama pod Babjim Zobom). It is also appreciated around the world as a centre for business tourism. The Bled area and the old towns in the vicinity offer active and culture-hungry

visitors a wealth of pleasures and relaxation: Radovljica with its Beekeeping Museum, Kropa with the Blacksmith’s Museum, Vrba (the birthplace of poet France Prešeren) and the rich cultural heritage of the villages below Mt Stol. Swan and cygnet

Lake Bohinj

BOHINJ



St John’s Church

Lake Bohinj

Cable car to Vogel

Bohinj lies at the heart of the Triglav National Park. Every season is a unique experience in Bohinj. The rushing of the waters in spring, the uneasy calm of nature and people in summer, the magic play of sunlight and colours in autumn, the snow-white peace of winter. This is a place of myths and legends (for example the legend of Zlatorog). From the mountains, whose mighty bulk surrounds and protects the lake, Lake Bohinj is like a mirror reflecting eternity and strength. The origins of ironworking in Slovenia are to be found in Bohinj. The tradition survives to the present day, especially in the area around Prešeren’s manor Ajdovski Gradec. The first world war linked the Bohinj basin to the events on the Soča (Isonzo) Front in the Soča valley. Another important sight is the railway tunnel built in 1906 which still connects the Gorenjska and Primorska regions and

enables access to the Julian Alps from the sea. You have to get up early and set off from Bohinj when it is still dark in order to conquer the mountain peaks and dispel fatigue with the wonderful views they afford. Vogel, the Savica waterfall, the museum of Alpine dairy farming, the Devil’s Bridge, Studor, the Triglav lakes and the Sava river: plenty to fill your days until the silence wishes you goodnight.


TOLMIN, KOBARID

Most na Soči, Tolmin, Kobarid

Kobarid

Alpine peaks and green hills, mysterious caves and healing springs. There are countless corners where visitors will want to linger and marvel at the beauty that surrounds them. Part of these natural riches are safeguarded by the Triglav National Park, a protected area. Far below the mountain peaks winds the blue-green Soča, a popular river for rafting and kayaking. Its tributaries, with their many waterfalls, pools and gorges, are veritable natural jewels. The most enchanting waterfall is Kozjak, while the most picturesque gorges are the Tolmin Gorges, the lowest point in the Triglav National Park. Alpine pastures spread over sunny terraces. This is where the famous Tolmin cheese is made. Tradition and heritage are still alive here in the excellent restaurants of Kobarid, together forming the Kobarid Gastronomic Circle, where you can sample traditional dishes such

as Kobarid-style štruklji (boiled strudel), a local version of polenta, planinski sir and curd cheese, prepared in a modern way. History has written great stories in this area, the most famous being that of the First World War, when the battles of the Soča (Isonzo) Front raged here. The numerous memorials and remains scattered across the area remind us of the horrors of that time. The most beautiful memorial is the little church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca.

The river Soča thunders its mighty symphony in Bovec. Situated along an ancient road through the Soča valley, Bovec is famous for the decisive first-world-war battles fought in the surrounding mountains. Local guides will be happy to show you the old battlefields. Bovec is also a world-famous centre for white-water rafting, fishing and mountain-climbing.

Kanin-Sella Nevea, Slovenia’s highest-lying ski resort (2,300 metres), is a popular winter sports destination. The view from the top of the slopes ranges over the mightiest peaks of the Julian Alps and extends all the way to the sea. The Bovec area was chosen as a location for the filming of Disney’s Chronicles of Narnia. Bovec is a town with a long tradition of tourism. Every trek into the mountains around Bovec is an act which only acquires its true significance later - when we return to our everyday occupations and in our hearts thank the mountains for the strength they have given us, for the spiritual renewal and for the impressions which remain with us all our lives. The wonderful valleys - Trenta, Lepena, Zadnjica, Loška Koritnica - are among the last surviving oases of unspoilt nature.


KRANJSKA GORA

Kranjska Gora

The north face of Triglav

The idyllic image of an Alpine village which has carried the fame of Slovene skiing around the world and is a popular destination for active holidays in summer or winter. The old village centre has developed into a genuine, picturesque jewel of tourism in the Gorenjska region. Here, natural simplicity and worldly sophistication meet. The figure of Kekec personifies the quick wits of the people of Kranjska Gora. The skiing and ski jumping world cup events testify to the excellence of their organisation and hospitality. The source of the Sava Dolinka river, which ends its journey in the Black Sea, is remarkable for its tranquillity. Kranjska Gora is a crossroads: towards the sea over the Vršič pass, past the Russian chapel and the Giantess (a face sculpted by nature in the side of a mountain), to Mojstrovka; you can also head towards Italy via Podkoren or to Austria over the Korensko Sedlo.

Peričnik waterfall

Nearby is Planica with its flying heroes (ski jumpers) and tasty mushrooms which peep above ground in the moonlight. Since 1904 it has been an ideal place for relaxation or an active break.

For the Slovenes, the Triglav National Park is a supreme example of natural and cultural heritage. It is also one of the oldest national parks in Europe. Not only that, it is a gallery of uncommonly beautiful images, an open-air museum and a refuge for restless spirits seeking harmony with themselves in harmony with nature. The excellence and professionalism of the enthusiasts who run the park conserve for us the originality of nature and the cultural landscape and ensure the co-existence of nature and modern man. The Triglav National Park is the pride of the tourist region of the Julian Alps. It is the only national park in Slovenia. The park was conceived in as long ago as 1906 and originally centred on the area of the Triglav lakes. In 1981 the park was enlarged. It now covers practically the whole of the

Julian Alps in Slovenia and measures 880 square kilometres. The highest point of the park is the peak of Mt Triglav (2864 metres), the highest mountain in Slovenia, from which the park takes its name; the lowest point is in the Tolmin gorges (180 metres). The unique natural and cultural heritage of this area of Slovenia is fully contained within the borders of the Triglav National Park. The Triglav National Park Act is a law governing protection in three protected areas. In the first two the priority is nature protection. The purpose of the third area, where people live and work, is to protect the cultural landscape and promote sustainable management and characteristic local activities.

11

RULES OF BEHAVIOUR • Littering or depositing waste is not permitted in the Triglav National Park. All rubbish must be taken to the designated municipal rubbish collection points • Fires and barbecues are only permitted in designated areas. • Cars and caravans may only be parked in designated parking areas. • Camping is only permitted at campsites. Organised camps, climbers’ camps and similar may also be permitted with the explicit permission of the Triglav National Park. • In the Triglav National Park mountain flora (protected or otherwise) is to be admired, not picked. • Nothing must be taken from the park and nothing left in it.

That which nature has created and which awakens the noblest sentiments in visitors must be respected and conserved. Slovenia and the Slovenes have been richly blessed with natural wonders. Let us stop for a moment or two and rid ourselves of stress, of pressure, of the rush of everyday city life. Nature is the best physician and the greatest artist. The Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park are one big natural heritage site. It would be impossible to list all the

natural wonders they contain. Many are hidden in difficult-to-reach areas of the mountains. We shall therefore list only the most popular sights, which draw hosts of visitors every year. In the Soča basin, the river Soča, in particular the source and the wild gorges, Boka waterfall, Kozjak waterfall and the Tolmin gorges. In Bohinj the first thing we notice is the lake. Most visitors trek up to the Savica waterfall, and nearly as many take a walk along the wonderful gorges of the Mostnica. Lake Bled has long been a recognised symbol of Slovenia. Vintgar gorge is another of the best known natural sights. In Kranjska Gora you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the magnificent panorama of the Špik mountain group or enjoy a marvellous excursion past the Peričnik waterfall below the northern face of Mt Triglav.


CYCLING

Cycling | Flying

Ravne with a view of Triglav

Like the whirling wheels of time, now slow, now fast. When we ride a bicycle we are masters of our own time - as though we were able to evaluate and make sense of it in the pathless expanses of the wonderful Julian Alps. Cycling is undoubtedly one of the most suitable ways to travel through the Julian Alps. Maps showing cycle routes are available in every tourism centre. Just as with hiking, the options available to cyclists include both easy and pleasant family tours and the most difficult mountain ascents and descents. The best marked and organised cycling destination is Kranjska Gora, while the best way to get to know the Julian Alps is to make a circular tour around the Triglav National Park.

Flying has been a desire of humankind since time immemorial. To admire the birds and use our wisdom to imitate them. Safe in the passenger seat of a hired aeroplane, between the cords of a parachute, beneath the wings of a hang-glider. There are two sports airfields in the Julian Alps, one at Lesce (Bled) and the other at Bovec. Both are ideal starting points for tourist flights and glider flights over the Alpine peaks, although the Bovec airfield is more demanding and less well equipped. In the Bohinj, SoÄ?a basin and Kranjska Gora areas there are also a series of launch points for hang-gliders and paragliders. The best-known launch points are Kobala above Tolmin and Stol above Kobarid, both popular venues for national competitions and European Cup and World Cup events.

When you lace your boots up tight and close the door behind you, that is when you start to live your real life. It is the

journey that is important, not the destination. Whether you are crunching snow beneath your feet, tramping through autumn leaves of wonderful colours or listening to the trilling of birds in summer. The Julian Alps offer an infinite range of hiking opportunities. From paths leading to natural sights and strolls in the valleys, to wanders in the Alpine foothills and demanding ascents into the high mountains. A walk of two to four hours separates the many climbers’ huts and refuges dotted across the region. Quality maps cover the entire area. Every part of the Julian Alps offers its own special features. In the Soča basin, the most beautiful paths are those along rivers and streams or leading to waterfalls. In the Kranjska Gora area, there are wonderful excursions to the Alpine valleys cut deep between the mountain peaks. Bled and Bohinj offer relaxing strolls along the lake shores.

A good grip, harmony of movements, never exceeding your capabilities but moving acrobatically on the border of daring. The profundity of living makes sense when you are standing on a mountain peak. Winter or summer, it is the weather and a courageous heart that will determine your victories. The Julian Alps may not reach great heights but in terms of the dimensions of their rock faces they are the equal of other European mountains over four thousand metres high. Travnik, Ĺ pik, Triglav, Mangrt are merely the best known peaks whose faces ascend 800 to 1000 metres up into the sky. The northern face of Triglav - 3 kilometres wide and 1200 metres high - is the third largest in Europe. There are thousands of routes to try. Together they present an eternal challenge to all those with enough knowledge and courage to tackle them.

Sports climbers can find over 25 climbing centres in the valleys and in the vicinity of tourist resorts. Most are to be found in Bohinjska Bela, Bohinj and Trenta. A climbing centre in Mojstrana organises climbs up frozen waterfalls every winter. Winter ascents into the mountains are of course the province of the best climbers. Many more visitors head for the frozen waterfalls which can be found in every Alpine valley. The best known areas for this type of climbing are Log pod Mangrtom (Bovec) and the Tamar valley (Kranjska Gora).

WATER ADVENTURES

Water adventures

We came from the water and to the water we will return. The possibility of fun or adventure on the water is open to everyone. Whether it is a rushing river or a tranquil Alpine lake, rapids or the limpid calm of a smooth surface, returning to the water is an infinite happiness. The waters of the Julian Alps can be the object of enchanted wonder or the source of a vast range of activities. The simplest way to discover them can be walks along the banks of streams, rivers and lakes. All three lakes - Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and the reservoir at Most na Soči - offer easy boating or organised boat trips, either in a characteristic Bled pletna or aboard one of the tourist vessels at Bohinj or Most na Soči. In terms of competitive sport, Bled is famous for producing world-class rowers and as a world championship rowing venue, Bohinj hosts an Ironman triathlon and the river Soča is a venue for major international kayaking events. In terms of modern adrenaline sports, the wild beauty that is the river Soča is undoubtedly the best known venue in Slovenia. Every year tens of thousands of visitors enjoy an unforgettable experience with rafts, canoes or hydrospeeds. These activities are also popular on the river Sava. The many interesting ravines and gorges across the area offer plenty of opportunities for canyoning. Qualified agencies and quality equipment for water sports and other activities in the natural environment can be found in all major towns around the Julian Alps.

From the riverbank or in waders in the middle of a stream, with patience and passion we await the duel. Fishing is simultaneously a sport and an art. The wise give life back to nature. It is a question of balance! Fishing is one of the elite tourist disciplines of the area. The Soča, the Lepenjica, the Idrijca, the Bača, the Sava, Lake Bohinj, the Radovna and a wealth of smaller streams offer over 200 kilometres of prime fishing waters. Only fly-fishing is permitted. The most common fish are trout and grayling. The marble trout, endemic to the river basins of the northern Mediterranean, is particularly famous. Fishing waters are carefully managed by anglers’ clubs in Tolmin, Bohinj, Bled and Jesenice and by the Fisheries Research Institute in Ljubljana.

The marble trout (Salmo trutta marmoratus)

You can be successful in various ways. Materially, socially or spiritually. Golf unites all these values. It is a meditation in the safe embrace of wonderful nature. For the time being there is just one golf course in the Julian Alps - at Bled. This 27-hole course is one of the most beautiful in Europe. Bovec’s golf course lies below the picturesque Kanin range and the magical land of Narnia where Disney filmed the second instalment of the Chronicles of Narnia saga. The nine-

Bled golf course

hole course hosts an annual Ski & Golf event that even includes a golf match on the snow. Other golf courses within a radius of 50 kilometres can be found at Volčji Potok (Ljubljana), Tarvisio (just across the border in Italy) and by the lakes of Austrian Carinthia. There are also driving ranges at Kranjska Gora and Bovec.

Only now are we discovering that every village has its own culinary speciality. The world is discovering this too. Come and have a taste! Tolmin, Bovec and Bohinj cheeses, Kobaridstyle štruklji (boiled strudel), Bohinj-style zaseka (minced lard) and Bled cream cake are slowly becoming real trademarks of Julian cuisine. Enriched by modern discoveries and techniques, the area’s cuisine is returning to traditional dishes and original flavours. On the Gorenjska side of the Julian Alps In peace, in the midst of nature, safe and comfortable, hospitable and worldclass, people come to seek good and wise solutions. Different opinions and proposals combine here to form a creative whole. The most important conference venue in the Julian Alps is undoubtedly Bled with its festival hall, its large first-class hotels (Toplice, Golf, Park) and its easy access. Bled is followed by Kranjska Gora (hotels: Kompas, Larix, Lek and Špik) and Bohinj, which is developing into a conference destination committed to sustainable development. Excellent examples of this include the Bohinj Park Eco-Hotel, the only hotel in Slovenia to hold the international Green Globe certificate, and the smaller Jezero, Zlatorog, Kristal and Tripič hotels. Bovec (Hotel Alp, Pristava Lepena, Triglav National Park information centre in Trenta, the Stergulc House, Pen-

19

(Bled, Bohinj, Kranjska Gora), culinary excellence is still mainly to be found in hotels, pensions and other lodging places. The skill of the local chefs is particularly evident during events, conferences and other ceremonial occasions. In the Soča basin, perhaps because of its proximity to epicurean Italy and the vineyards of Goriška Brda, we discover the best flavours in smaller establishments. Pride of place must surely go to the restaurants in Kobarid which form part of the Kobarid Gastronomic Circle.

Where are we from, who are we and where are we bound? Cultural events enrich the visitor in a unique way. They affect the soul in a slightly different way to beautiful countryside, a good excursion, a bold adventure. You have to know the history of your country in order to be successful in the future. At every step we encounter cultural heritage created over centuries. So stop and marvel. The cultural landscape has marked the character of the population. The Julian Alps are a natural and cultural monument. Its most famous jewels are Bled Castle on its cliff above the lake, Dom Trenta (the Triglav National Park information centre), the mighty fortress of Kluže above the wild gorge of the Koritnica, Kobarid Museum with its account of the bloody Soča (Isonzo) Front, and Tolmin Museum, the archaeological centre of western Slovenia. Past

and present meet in the Slovenian Alpine Museum. A rich collection of museum pieces with a varied and colourful history, a great diversity of photographic and archive material and an extensive specialist library offer the visitor an insight into the scale and importance of mountaineering activities in Slovenia. There are many famous churches, among them the church of St John by Lake Bohinj, the church of the Assumption on Bled Island, the church of the Holy Spirit at Javorca in the valley of the Tolminka and the Russian chapel below Vršič pass. The Liznjek farmstead in Kranjska Gora, the Pocar farmstead in Radovna, the Alpine dairy farming museum and the Oplen house in Bohinj, the Alpine pastures high in the mountains, the Bovec house, the architecture of Breginj or the famous Studor hayracks are wonderful examples of folk know-how and tradition.

Happiness is a sign of relaxation. A smile is the shortest distance between people. And then we take off our everyday seriousness and, in passing, day draws into night. There are many traditional, cultural events and entertainments with different themes that carry visitors into the past or are part of the modern world: the Festival Kluže in Bovec, Metalcamp in Tolmin, Musical Summer, Cow Ball, serenading and rustic wedding in Bohinj, Bled Festival and Okarina world music festival in Bled and traditional gathering at the Russian chapel (built in memory of Russian POWs in 1916) below the Vršič pass. Each of the lakes – Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and the lake at Most na Soči – has its own glittering summer night full of entertainment, lights and fireworks. Reflecting the development of sustainable tourism in Bohinj are the Green Weekend and the International Wildflower Festival. The Festival of Hiking and Fishing reflects the ideal conditions for these activities in the area. Kobarid also hosts an annual Hiking Festival each autumn. A special place of honour in the Alpine scene belongs to popular folk music. At the forefront is the famous Avsenik ensemble. All of the above is simply a taste of the hundreds of events you can find on the calendar of every tourist information centre in the area.


MAJOR SPORTS EVENTS

Major sports events

Major sports meetings are among the most famous events in the Julian Alps: the Vitranc Cup – a FIS Ski World Cup event in Kranjska Gora – and ski jumping in Planica; the World Rowing Championships in Bled, the Biathlon World Cup in Pokljuka, Freeride Battle Kanin – an international ski and snowboard freeride event, paragliding World Cup and European Championship events in Tolmin and Kobarid, para-ski and telemark skiing World Cup events in Bohinj. Every May Kobarid hosts the Outdoor Show, a spectacular event which sees domestic and foreign competitors compete in various disciplines. Every June Podbrdo hosts the demanding GM4O mountain marathon and in 2011 will host the World Cup Mountain Running Championships. Smaller sports events – cycling, running, hiking, rowing and a variety of activities in the countryside and on sports fields – take place throughout the summer season on a practically daily basis, since the active component predominates in tourism in the area.

Skiing

We are a nation with a long skiing tradition. Skis even stand by our cradles. And we do not merely use them to rush down hills. We also rejoice and fly. And get together. Get to know each other. Many people who meet on skis stay together all their lives. Kranjska Gora, a world cup venue, is Slovenia’s best known resort for Alpine skiing and ski jumping (Planica). Bohinj has four skiing centres – Vogel, Kobla and Soriška Planina and Senožeta – while Bovec is the only place in Slovenia where the ski runs pass the 2,000 metre mark (Kanin) – at the international twin ski resort of Kanin-Sella Nevea. The adrenaline-hungry are well provided for in Kranjska Gora, where the Snow Park is a real challenge for snowboarders and skiers. It is the only snow park in Slovenia that is floodlit at night.


Kranjska Gora

Ski school

The best-known centre for cross-country skiing is Pokljuka, accessible from both Bled and Bohinj, while a trek on skis below the mighty rock faces into the Tamar valley is a marvellous experience. In Kranjska Gora (Tromeja), Bovec (Mangrt) and Bohinj (Vogar) tobogganing on snowy roads is becoming increasingly popular. The biggest adventure of all is ski touring high in the mountains - for safety reasons a mountain guide must always be present.

MOTORAIL

Julian Alps Train, Solkan viaduct

The motorail service (Avtovlak) between Bohinjska Bistrica and Most na Soči is the most comfortable way to get from the Gorenjska side (Bohinj) of the Julian Alps to the Primorska side (Tolmin). Motorbikes, cars and campers are carried. We also recommend the service to cyclists since it saves them the difficult (though beautiful) climb over

Soriška Planina (1,277 metres). For excursionists and especially for visitors staying in one place, the motorail service makes it easier to see the sights on the northern or southern side of the Julian Alps.

JULIAN ALPS TRAIN

The purpose of the Julian Alps Train project is to promote the Triglav National Park and the Julian Alps and a green Slovenia. The Julian Alps Train runs at weekends and on public holidays between Ljubljana and Nova Gorica via Jesenice, Bled, Bohinjska Bistrica and Most na Soči.

Games of chance

Roulette

They say that there’s no such thing as chance. It is therefore no mere chance that the natural environment of the Julian Alps also offers opportunities for experiences of different types. In the contrasts offered by games of chance, you can find new forms of relaxation and amusement that will fill a rainy day or liven up evenings and nights. Casinos today are no longer places of dubious reputation but popular centres of entertainment where, as well as playing the slot machines or taking a seat at the gaming tables, you can eat and drink well, watch a floor show, or even take to the dance floor yourself. There are several places in Kranjska Gora itself where you can try your luck (in the Korona casino and Larix gaming salon), or alternatively you can head off to Bled or Kranj in your hunt for a lucky chance. If you’re in the Soča valley, you can try your luck at Aurora Casino and Cabaret in Staro selo near Kobarid.

Agatha Christie, Bohinj 1967

Don’t go to Bohinj if you are looking for big hotels, budget restaurants, smoke-filled snack bars, swimming amidst shrieking hordes, queues for cable cars and drag lifts, cyclists hurtling up hill and down dale, racing paragliders, the pastel mosaics of packed car parks, a rubbish-strewn lake shore, deafening music booming out from every bar, markets selling junk to tourists… Bohinj is a perfectly preserved jewel where citizens of the modern world can find their good, peaceful side in reflections of nature. More than two-thirds of Bohinj lies within the Triglav National Park and so all tourism activities, from hiking, cycling, fishing, water sports and winter sports to gastronomy are oriented towards natural, sustainable tourism. This means that Bohinj is not a shopping centre in a desolate landscape of illegal rubbish dumps but a boutique gallery in an exclusive district of an ancient town of all that is choicest and most precious – and not for sale. Even Agatha Christie, who knew a thing or two about human nature, once declared that Bohinj was too beautiful for murder.

The biggest attraction of these waters is the endemic marble trout, unique to this part of the world, that grows to enormous size and is, in fact, the largest European trout. Other interesting fish include trout crossbreeds, brown trout and rainbow trout, grayling, barbel and chub. The marble trout once almost died out as a result of crossbreeding with the brown trout, which began to be released into Slovenian waters almost a hundred years ago. In the 1980s surviving populations of pure marble trout were discovered in remote streams. For the last 18 years the Tolmin Angling Club has been running a research and protection project for this unique fish and its survival is assured. Fly fishing with a barbless hook is possible with a permit from 1 April to 31 October. Anglers can choose between a catch and release permit or a standard permit (allowing a take of three fish).

TOLMIN GORGES, THE MAGIC GATEWAY TO THE TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK

In the Tolmin Gorges the rivers Tolminka and Zadlaščica have carved gorges over 60 metres deep and 400 metres long into the living rock. Today these gorges are protected as a natural monument and are one of the biggest tourist attractions of the Soča Valley. A nature trail runs through the gorges to magic spots such as a thermal spring, the confluence of two crystal-clear rivers, a rock the shape of a bear’s head, the Devil’s Bridge, wedged dizzily between high cliffs, and Zadlaz Cave, the home of a mythological “wild woman” and, according to legend, once used as a shelter by the famous Italian poet Dante Alighieri. It is said that the dramatic surroundings inspired his depiction of Hell in the Divine Comedy. The path through the Tolmin Gorges is open from the beginning of April to the end of October.

Bovec lies at the heart of the Triglav National Park, in the valley of the emerald river Soča, beneath the towering peaks of the Julian Alps. The destination is a true paradise for all who love activity holidays: hiking, cycling, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, fishing, climbing, snowshoeing and skiing are among the most popular activities. This area, chosen by Disney as the location for the second instalment of fantasy saga The Chronicles of Narnia, is a European Destination of Excellence where everyone can experience genuine, unspoilt nature and the spirit of a diverse cultural heritage that was fatefully marked by the First World War. Accommodation is available for over 5,000 visitors in campsites, hotels, mountain huts, guest houses, on open farms, and in rooms and apartments in Bovec and the surrounding area of untouched natural beauty. Sports agencies offer a popular range of sports and outdoor activities, while in winter the main attraction is the highest-lying ski resort in Slovenia – the twin ski areas of Kanin and Sella Nevea (2,300 metres) – where skiers can enjoy 30 km of pistes and an altitude difference of 1,200 metres.
