Iski vintgar is a beautiful place in Slovenia, not so far from Ljubljana. You can leave the car on the quite big parking area near lodge house Iski vintgar. If you like just short walk and do some refreshment in the cool water in hot summer days then I suggest you to stay on the left bank of river Iska and continue on the way to the end of the path. There you will see nice beach where is possible to swim. If you like more hiking then you have to cross the footbridge and continue on the path to the confluence of river Iska and Zaka. On the way there you will see Rocky solitary -Votli kamen (Hollow Stone). At the confluence you can also possibility to swim a little near another Rocky solitary named Skalni moz (Rocky man).

Triglav (2864 m) is the highest mountain in Slovenia. It lies in the Triglav National Park and it is the only national park in Slovenia. If you like hiking, nature, mountains then you must visit it if you come in Slovenia. There are many different ways to come to the top of Triglav summit. The easiest way is from Pokljuka or Krma Valley. It takes about 6 hours in one direction so you have to start with your hike very early if you want to go there and back in one single day. But anyway you can sleep in some of many mountain huts around Triglav but be careful in summer when more people want same so it can be everything occupied. And be careful about weather especially in the afternoon when thunderstorms are more often in summer. At the top of Triglav is Aljaz Tower that is symbol of Triglav (see photo).

Road to the Mangart Saddle is one of the most interesting Alpine roads in Slovenia. All the way you have nice views of Julian Alps. You must be carefull cause sheep can cross the road. During the drive you can stop beside the road and enjoy in views. When you come to the Mangart Saddle (more than 2000 m above sea level) you can park somewhere near road and continue to walk to Mangart summit. Choose Italian way if you are not so much experienced mountaineer. But anyway it takes about 2 hours to come to summit, so choose good shoes and don't go in bad weather.

Most of the path is easy for walking, except you have to be careful around Small Natural Bridge where are most interesting places to see. Nearby attraction is also Lake Cerknica and a little further Sneznik Castle.

Sneznik Castle is a very romantic castle in the Inner Carniola. It's nice to walk on the path around the castle, watch pond with ducks but I suggest you to take time and also go on tour inside the castle. Sneznik Castle still has original equipment in all rooms so it is interesting to see that. Tour guide will also show you some old mechanisms that was installed for communication in the castle. So you will see how master called servants and how servants know in which room is master. Nearby is also some museum. And not so far away is periodic Slivnica Lake that is also interesting to see.
