Triglav National Park is the only one of its kind in Slovenia and one of the oldest in Europe.
It covers 4% of Slovenia’s territory and a huge portion of the country’s Julian Alps. The park was established in 1981 to protect the pristine natural and cultural heritage within its boundaries. It is named after Slovenia’s highest peak, Mount Triglav, one of the most iconic mountains in Slovenia. Triglav tour is on a bucket list of a lot of hikers around the world, and traditionally a must do for every Slovenian.
Hundreds of alpine plants grow here and the wild animals that roam the park include the ibex, red deer, chamois, brown bear, and the lynx. Plus 84 bird species, ruled over by the golden eagle. Plenty of Slovenia’s most important Alpine towns are located in this natural wonder, like Kranjska Gora, Bovec, Bohinj and Kobarid.
