A gorge with turquoise water in Slovenia

Slovenia is a country filled with natural beauty and unique features. One of those is an emerald green river, or a large underground canyon of imposing dimensions. This time we moved back to a small surface natural corner of Slovenia in the municipality of Gorje. A walk that takes place between wooden walkways that meander along a transparent river between rocky cliffs. In total, you can complete a journey of nearly seven kilometers from the city of Podhorn, just a few minutes from Bled. Vintgar or throat is shaped by the river Radovna, which with its not so calm waters (for trips) has been commissioned to carve the canyon walls up to 100 meters high.

Throughout the journey of two kilometers inside the throat, there are stretches of rapids, pools and calm ponds where water is in turquoise tones. And towards the end of the ride, you get to a scenic waterfall about 13 feet high. From the nearby town of Bled, you can also enjoy the view of a very photogenic lake with an island in the middle. Slovenia is a small country, but with a variety of mountain scenery and curiosities that make it a surprise to learn. So much so that despite its small size, it has gained a few places on the list of “must visit”.
