Take in the wonderful scenes and fresh air from Mežakla plateau.
Mežakla is a high plateau stretching at an altitude of 1000 and 1300 metres. It lies between Radovna and Sava Dolinka, and is mostly overgrown with spruce and beech forest. The plateau is nested in Triglav National Park, unspoiled and not very popular among tourists. Many pastures are dotted around the countryside, and used by cattle to graze. It also abounds in pure springs and mountain streams. A natural 15-metre bridge across the ravine, which emerged due to erosion and unequal decay of stones, is quite a special sight.
Mežakla has experienced quite some interesting periods through history. Before the Second World War, it was the location of the king's village. As a story tells, the king sent his advisers, bioenergy specialists to examine Pohorje, Pokljuka, Jelovica and Mežakla to find the most appropriate place to build a vacation residence, and they chose Mežakla. During the First World War, all facilities were destroyed and the village was erased. During the Second World War, Mežakla came to life again, because the first partisan hospital was built here. The modest hospital, also called Mala bolnica or Small Hospital, was a safe haven to the wounded, because it was not discovered by the enemy.
