Trail
“The Radovna river cuts the Vintgar gorge deep between the hills of Hom and Boršt. The gorge is flanked by steep slopes overgrown with beech forests. It was discovered in 1891 by Mr. Jakob Žumer, mayor of Gorje, and Mr. Benedikt Lergetporer, a cartographer and photographer from Bled. Both were amazed by the beauty and the mysterious character of this natural attraction. Local people, however, have always viewed the gorge with awe and respect.”

Natural Feature
“Located just 2 km from Kranjska Gora, Lake Jasna is a stunning alpine lake covering a surface area of 2.2 ha. It is a popular tourist destination, which offers breathtaking views on the surrounding mountains. The lake is guarded by a statue of a Zlatorog (golden horn), the legendary chamois of Mt. Triglav. Lake Jasna now offers not just a place for a walk to admire the views but somewhere lovely to while away whole Summer days on the beach, swimming and sunbathing - adding an important new dimension to Kranjska Gora’s Summer offering for tourists.”

“Vršič pass is the highest road pass in Slovenia and connects Kranjska Gora (Gorenjska region) with Bovec (Primorska region). The road, built by Russian war prisoners during the 1st world war, runs through the heart of Julian Alps and the views from the road simply call out for a stop-over. A short walk at the summit of Vršič pass is described here and is meant especially for those who wish to "stretch" their legs and have a meal in one of the mountain huts on the way. The walk offers an exceptionally good view of Mt. Prisojnik wall and other summits on both sides of the pass. Also suitable for children.”

“Racer‘s cafe, restaurant, bar www.racerscafe.at (Gewerbezeile 2a) is next door - max a 5 minute walk away. Open all day, it's really popular. You can have anything from breakfast, lunch, dinner to just a coffee or drink there. Food served is simple, good (i like their salads, but they also have (so i heard) great burgers, pizza in the evening) and the staff is friendly. Ask for their non-smoking areas if you're bothered by the smoke. ”
