Vintgar Gorge, Bled

4.5
#1 of 189 in Outdoors in Slovenia
Cut deep between two hills overgrown with beech forests, Vintgar Gorge is full of small waterfalls, rapids, and erosion potholes. Cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer and mayor of Gorje Jakob Zumer discovered the gorge in 1891. Walk along the tourist path with narrow passages, wooden bridges, and galleries, constructed on the rocks in 1893. Listen to the roar of Radovna River echoing along the 1.6 km (1 mi) long gorge marked at the end by a waterfall plunging 16 m (52 ft). The gorge also features two manmade attractions: an arched stone railway bridge from 1906 and a dam. When you reach the end of the gorge, walk back across the meadows passing St. Catherine's church.

  • I went there right when it opened. Next to no one there. Let me tell you this place was absolutely stunning. The further you went, the better it got. It is worth the walk. If you go during the summer ...  more »
  • During a weekend in Slovenia we decided to visit this nature show that definitely impressed us. Beautiful contrasts between the bright blue of the water and the red of the leaves that you can find in autumn, but since we found cloudy weather probably with the sun the bright colors of the water would stand out even more. The cost is 10 euros, which is worth them all, and the route will last less than an hour and are all wooden walkways and bridges lining the gorge. There are some really special views and even the waterfalls that you see at the end of the route are very beautiful. Once you get to the end you can go back or continue for other paths in the middle of the woods that take a bit everywhere, even to Lake Bled. So absolutely recommended attraction, suitable for everyone because it is not tiring and feasible even with dogs on a leash
