Vintgar is one of the biggest and most famous attractions in Slovenia and it is really well known. The attendance of the gorge is really enormous, so I recommend getting up or walking through it in the evening. There is a charge. The gorge is over 1.5 km long and allegedly the gorge reaches a depth of 250 m, I would guess rather 150 m. From here you can walk to the most famous lake in Slovenia, which is Bled. It's a feast for the eyes. With beautiful clear water and warm water in summer. So pack a swimsuit and refresh yourself and enjoy the mountains.

Vintgar Gorge Circuit with Lake Bled

Vitgar is one of the biggest and most famous attractions in Slovenia and you really know it. The attendance of the gorge is really enormous, so I recommend getting up or walking through it in the evening. It's charged, I feel like it cost me 5 Euros. The gorge is over 1.5 km long and allegedly the gorge reaches a depth of 250 m, I would guess rather 150 m. At the end is the second Koča under which is a waterfall and from here you can go either to the parking lot or continue to the most famous lake in Slovenia, which is Bled. Anyway, we saved our nerves. Because Bled is totally clogged in the afternoon. The column for an hour and parking costs 2 Euros or more per hour, so a walk will come in handy. The town of Bled itself did not fascinate me. It is possible to go to the castle, where the entrance fee is 10 Euro. Then end somewhere on the embankment in the restaurant or on one of the beaches and take a bath. The water is beautifully warm and clean. But it's more for swimmers. At least where we bathed, I was surprised by its depth. It's a feast for the eyes. So pack a swimsuit and refresh yourself and enjoy the mountains.
