Triglav National Park, the only park in Slovenia, is located near Bled and encompasses one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia, since it stretches almost over the entire Julian Alps in Slovenia. The park is very picturesque and diverse, and stretches on 4% of Slovenia's territory. The highest Slovenia's mountain Triglav (2864 m) lies right in the centre of the park, which is named after the mountain. Deep, steep glacial valleys covered by green forests and pastures surround Triglav. Valleys and plateaus are covered with green colours and pastures, upgraded with the high peaks of staggering and sharp peaks. Crystal clear mountain streams and small rivers flow along numerous ravines and beautiful gorges (Vintgar, Mlinarica and Mostnica), which merge into two larger rivers, the Sava and the Soča. They also divide the Adriatic and Black Sea. Hidden high in the mountains nestle Triglav and Križ lakes, while Lake Bohinj, the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia, lies in Bohinj.
This mighty, irresistible and unique natural peak hides endless forests, deep valley, high pastures and clear water running from the highest peak to rivers, lakes and streams. The image of this wonderful and diverse landscape is rounded up by the exceptional richness of flora and fauna, with numerous rare and protected plants and animals. Wild wolves, bears and steinbocks belong to the large animals living in Triglav National Park. Here, in the area of wonderful nature and many myths and legends, people still live as they used to, in complete harmony with nature and a feeling for tradition. On the brinks of the park, where man has maintained and kept the land for many centuries, history and culture have left many marks. Old farms and homesteads typical of the locale can be found in remote corners of the park. Livestock still graze on many Alpine pastures and farmers continue to make cheese in the traditional manner.
