  the sunny Alps
Alps

The mighty but easily accessible Julian Alps, the tourist area in this attractive geographical area is linked by the offer of four developed tourist towns: Bled, Kranjska Gora, Bohinj and Bovec with the Soča Valley. Most of the area is within the Triglav National Park which measures 85 hectares and is one of the largest natural parks in Europe. The park lies in the vicinity of high stony mountains including Mount Triglav (2864 m); the highest mountain of Slovenia - and deep river gorges, highland karst potholes and friendly highlands. It protects many endemic animal and plant species (living in the park, among unique plant species there are chamois, mountain sheep, wild roosters, grouse, eagles and marmots) and the tradition of the hard life of alpine dairymen and mountaineers.

The renowned Bled with its lake and the island with a church from the 17th century (and the bell of wishes) is situated at the edge of the park, and above it stands a medieval castle. Bled, celebrating its 1000th anniversary in 2004 is considered a real tourist paradise with its thermal springs and other natural attractions, numerous recreational possibilities, its conference hall, casino and golf corse.
