Vintgar gorge

Where: Near Bled, ,
When: All year round
Vintgar Gorge is one of the most beautiful and popular nature sites in Slovenia. The rocky walls of the impressive gorge were created by the slashing water flows of the river Radovna.
The 1,600 meters long channel was made ready for hikers hundred years ago.

A wooden path is installed along the narrow route that passes over the river. The hikers can be impressed by the noise of the water batting the rocky channel.

Slovenia background and overview
The Slovene lands were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the latter's dissolution at the end of World War I. In 1918, the Slovenes joined the Serbs and Croats in forming a new multinational state, which was named Yugoslavia in 1929. After World War II, Slovenia became a republic of the renewed Yugoslavia, which though Communist, distanced itself from Moscow's rule. Dissatisfied with the exercise of power by the majority Serbs, the Slovenes succeeded in establishing their independence in 1991 after a short 10-day war. Historical ties to Western Europe, a strong economy, and a stable democracy have assisted in Slovenia's transformation to a modern state. Slovenia acceded to both NATO and the EU in the spring of 2004.
