‘Vintgar Gorge - Sound of the river’

In the vicinity of Bled you can find one of the most popular natural features in Slovenia: the 1,6 km. long Vintgar Gorge.

In this gorge the Radovna river has carved its way through vertical rocks.
A path along the river and the steep cliffs leads you over several suspended walkways and bridges to the end of the gorge where a bridge overlooks the 16 m high Šum waterfall.

Since the Vintgar Gorge is very close to Bled, the highlight of Slovenia for many visitors, you won’t be alone on this trail.
But if you’re a little patient and wait till the groups of tourists have passed by, you find yourself alone with the beautiful sound of the river.

From http://www.slovenia.info/si :
The gorge has been arranged for visitors for more than a hundred years. Along the narrow passage, where the Radovna river thrashes loudly against its rocky confines, there are paths, galleries and bridges constructed in the rock. The trail runs through the 1600 m long gorge.
The Radovna flows over cascades and rapids, and in clear pools it finds peace for a few moments.
The Vintgar gorge ends at the delightful Šum waterfall, the highest river fall in Slovenia.
