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.

Vintgar Gorge reviews
This natural beauty must be at the top list of Slovenia visitors. Even the route from Ljubljana was a delightful landscape of hills, forrest and mountains. There are several parking lots on the... more »
An overrated attraction. Your time is better spent in places like Tolmin Gorge, Pokljuska Gorge, or on the Soca/Bovec side of the mountains. Vintgar doesn't have the carved rocks the way malika... more »
Another great place worth visiting, near the astonishing lake Bled. Try to get there early in the morning though, as the pathways are very narrow and when it gets crowded it may take too long to walk there. Stunning views and fresh mountain air. Loved it overall, but I should definitely recommend hiking around the Mala Osojnica area above the lake.
Absolutely gorgeous. One of my favorite places in Slovenia (which is saying a lot). Bit of advice-- go very early or very late. It is a small, long walkway (I believe about 3 miles round trip). Could be not as dramatic having to dodge people constantly.
