The Savica waterfall is a very famous waterfall, but I found it overstated. First you have to pay for the parking, then for using the way up to the waterfall and after you’ve climbed up those 500 stairs on a quite boring path you stand on a little platform in front of lattices – and only can view the waterfall through this grille. I now know why all photos of the waterfall look the same, it’s just impossible to do it from another place! You couldn’t get closer to the waterfall, and after having been at the Pericnik waterfall the day before were we even got wet because we were so close, I was disappointed of the Savica waterfall.
Admission: 400 SIT adults, 200 SIT children
Parking fee: 600 SIT
It’s well signposted, however if you’ve time and want to save the parking fee you might want to drive through the village of Ukanc to the hotel Zlatorog and walk from there (I’ve read that it’s 45 to 60 minutes to the parking).
Fun Alternatives: Visit Slap Pericnik near Mojstrana instead!

Ok, be prepared for no heating in the rooms, when I was there they were short on food, make sure you have a reservation and enough money caus it aint cheap. Kredarica is, althought, the only place upthere that may be open also in the wintertime. Make sure to check, if you are going there, that its really open and has places to stay. If you are a member of some mountaineering club you get (I think) around 15% or even 20% discount on overnight stay.
Unique Suggestions: Bring refreshing wipes, make sure you have enough dry clothes caus you aint gonna shower up there :)
Fun Alternatives: I would recommend staying at Vodnikov Dom or Planika, they are very friendly and the places are cosy.....
