Bled Vintgar Gorge

Vintgar Gorge is located near Bled and it is one of the most beautiful places in Slovenia. It is about 2 kilometers long gorge where you walk on galleries above the Radovna brook so trail is really attractive. At the end of the gorge is waterfall Sum. If you visit Bled you have to visit also Vintgar Gorge cause it is not so far away and it is worth of the visit. But you should know that Vingar Gorge is closed during winter time cause it can be danger because of stones falling down. So usually it opens in April but better to check before.

The Kolpa River

The Kolpa River is one of the most beautiful rivers in Slovenia. It lies mostly on the border between Slovenia and Croation in the south-east part of Slovenia. There you can find many activities to do, especially in the summer time. Most popular is rafting or kayaking. The river is quite calm so it is suitable for almost anyone even kids. From time to time you will come to some rapids but nothing very special. At some dams you should take a boat down by your hands. Other activities are swimming, camping, cycling, hiking, etc. There are many camping places that can be quite occupied in the high season cause some people prefer to go to Kolpa River than at seaside.
