After our first few days in Italy, we made our way further to Slovenia. Going to Slovenia in the first place is kind of a funny story. For some reason I never had Slovenia on my bucket list, because I had just no image of this beautiful country in my head. So one day in the office I came back to my computer and saw this great picture of the Julian alps on my locked screen background. So I looked up where the picture was taken and this sparked my interest to go to Slovenia.
When planing where to go in Slovenia, I concentrated on the regions around the Trivlag National Park. At the end two regions stick which been the Soca Valley (Bovec) and Lake Bohinj (Stara Fužina). As we wanted to travel slower and concentrate more on less we stayed in both places six days each.
Before we reached Slovenia we had a 220 km drive ahead of us from the Val Gardena to Bovec. Even that the distance is not much the drive will take around 5 to 6 hours, as it is through mainly the mountain region of the Dolomites and through the “Parco Naturale Regionale delle Prealpi Giulie”.
After crossing the border to Slovenia I could not believe how beautiful this region is. Bovec is a small mountain town which is surrounded by the peaks of the Julian Alps, such as Kanin and Krn. Also, the mountains, forests and glacial lakes of Triglav National Park are close to the town and the Soča River runs next to it. A perfect to location to stay a couple of days and explore.
