    view from terace of Alja?ev Hut to MtTriglav-2864

    The park is named after Mt.Triglav (2864m), symbol of the Slovenia, which is situated almost in the middle of the protected territory. From it the valleys spread out radial, supplying water to two large river Systems which have theirsources in the Julian Alps: the Soca river and the Sava river flowing to the Adriatic and Black Sea respectively.

    ice climbing

    The famous "Lucifer" waterfall in Gozd Martuljek, first climbed in 1979, represents the beginning of modern ice climbing in Slovenia.Today it is considered a classical climb, but has remained one of the greatest challenges for ice climbers. You can find other popular waterfalls below Prisank and also in the Tamar Valley.Dovje-Mojstrana boasts an artificial ice wall - approximative 30 to 40 m - in the Mlaèca gorge!

    ME IN THE WOODS.....SLOVENIA

    All around Dovje (and a little further, where you can go by car, park it and go on on foot !) nature's abundant colours will make you feel ONE with Mother Earth!

    Easy shoes and of you go...

    There are maps and the paths a well post-signed!

    The locals (in the countryside) will love to stop and chat of maybe offer you a taste of some of their home-made delicacies.....

    After such a special encounter you can continue your trip and when at the end of the day in the open, you feel womewhat tired, then soothe your eyes and heart on a breathtaking view: that of a field of flowering buckwheat!

    Did you realise that you can also book a holiday at a farm???
    I shall tell you more about it soon!

    BIRDS.

    The Triglav National Park is the breeding place for numerous bird species.

    There are 84 species confirmed breeders, 9 species of possible breeders and 22 probably breeders.

    The TNP also plays host to a number of winter visitors and oassage migrants.

    Of course the TNP is inhabitated by birds typical of alpine ecosystems.
    Extensive forests, high-altitude pastures, screes and rocks, glens and streams and lochans withing the TNP along with the cultural landscape of fields, meadows, orchards and villages provide a diversity os habitats for birds...

    The families of ***, finches, wagtails and thrushes and their allies belong to the most common bird species.

    Should you walk quietly in the old-growth forest on teg Poljuka plateau early on a May morning, you might hear the song of the capercaillie.....

    And the black woodpecker?
    You could find him in a clearing in an old-growth forest stand, on a dead and rotting trunk, black and crow-sized!

    The great tit is one of the best-known species.

    The mountain eagle soars high in the air on the lookout for prey........

    Hike to Krnica

    Spic mountain

    This shortish hike affords lovely views of Spic mountain, which is almost pryamidal in shape. The path starts near the base of the Vrsic pass on the outskirts of Kranjska Gora. This walk was clearly signposted and waymarked throughout. Mountain scenery was all around us and at times was reminiscent of jagged Dolomite peaks.

    Entrance Statue, Dovje, Slovenia

    We saw this statue at the entrance to the village of Dovje, have no idea who or why he is pointing at Mt.Triglav, but I do hope someone who is familiar will give me a hint. Maybe he is the first Slovenian to climb Mt.Triglav ??

    Tal and Svetka, Dovje, Slovenia

    Well it took a few days, but we convinced Svetka that she knows enough English to at least speak to us, but I had to kid her for hours ^O^.....
    She and Tal became good friends in that time, they even went and "buried" with last rites, one of Svetka's goldfish that had died on her.

    Marko and Svetka, Dovje, Slovenia

    Marko and Svetka his youngest daughter. You might ask why Marko has his hair dyed that color (well we did ask since his hair was brown last year !!)....
    It was Svetka's birthday present to HERSELF ^O^ She asked her father to dye his hair that color for HER birthday as a present to her. Sort of like my daughter Tal asking me to shave my beard for hers (Tal go a digital camera instead ;O))))

    In Marko's garden, Dovje, Slovenia

    I caught this picture of Marko and Svetka sitting in the garden just before I came down to join them. The garden is the center of life here at Marko's, there and the garden table where we often share a glass of wine.

    At Marko's with friends, Dovje, Slovenia

    Yet once again we spent some wonderful days in the warm embrace of friends at Marko's there in Dovje. It was wonderful not only for the "coming home" we felt, but that we were able to meet friends from outside Slovenia as well, yes, Carla and Ronald also came to meet us there.

    View from climb to Baba

    Baba Mountain, in the Karavanke chain on the Austrian Slovenia border is a favourite place of Marko's and its easy to understand why. Wonderful views across to Dovje Mojstrana and across the valleys to Triglav. It became our favourite place too.

    Slap Pericnik

    by sandysmith Written Jul 18, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Slap Pericnik

    Slap Pericnik is one of the best known waterfalls in Slovenia. There are actually two waterfalls. Pericnik flows as the upper waterfall with height of 16 m (53 feet) and as the lower waterfall with height 52 m (171 feet). The best view of waterfalls is from the opposite hill of the cliff with the waterfalls. Both waterfalls, which are like two guardians of the Vrata valley, can be seen. Approach is possible with vehicle from Mojstrana in direction of Vrata valley. Path from Mojstrana along the right side of the Bistrica stream is recommended. One hour of relaxing walk and the lower Pericnik can be seen. Be careful with the approach to the Upper waterfall. This was a lovely hike we did with our VT friends - please see the travelogue for more pics.

    THOSE COLOURS...

    CLOSE-UP SOURCE SAVA RIVER

    make me envy nature.......my palette never has such wonderful nuances.......

    The sun added beauty by shining on us and the source....

    Along part of the water was a perfect wood path, otherwise one couldn't walk there.....everything around is a swamp......

    From the wood tower the view was also great but I preferred to be as near to the water as possible.

    2ND PHOTO OF THE SOURCE...

    by eden_teuling Written Jul 14, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SOURCE OF SAVA RIVER

    The water was so clear, crystalline clear and it was difficult to see how deep it was.....not deep because I could see the sandy bottom and the bubbling water that came from small holes in the bottom!

    It seems to be filled with ( contradictio in terminis) UNDERWATER FOUNTAINS, numerous little fountains!

    And the fish I saw preferred to swim through all these bubbling little wells and perhaps the fresh water that came from deep down was indeed fresher and perhaps had special treats for the fish.

    I felt mesmerized by this beauty, the silence, NO TOURISTS, the birdsong in the high trees and in the high grass......a hidden paradise and there even is a roadsign that shows you how to walk.......imagine, to paradise....
