Take a walk down the narrow suspended path along the canyon over the mountain river.
How to walk along the Vintgar gorge in Ljubljana
Natural canyon Vintgar was discovered first in 1893 - a 1600-meter-long gorge in the cave.

Along the Radovna river flowing at the bottom of the gorge there are suspended wooden paths leading over mountain rapids to 16-meter-high Šum Falls.

How to do?

1. The Vintgar gorge is located in the Triglav National Park that is 65 kilometers north west from Ljubljana along E61 highway. At the entrance there is a free parking lot.

2. Come here just right at the time of the walking path opening (at about 8am) as an hour later it'll be almost impossible to take a pic with no people in it.

All the route along the canyon takes about 1,5 hour. At the end of the way you can have a swim in the open pool at the bottom of the falls and have a snack in a cafe nearby.

At the end of the path route there is 16-meter-high waterfall, Ljubljana
