Vintgar Gorge Attractions
The Vintgar gorge is one of the most popular natural features in Slovenia. 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. At the waterfall the trail leaves the Radovna and rises up a track heading south-east to the chapel of St Catherine above Zasip. From here there is one of the finest views over the entire area of Bled. The way back goes down to Zasip and then along the road to Bled.
The Gorje Tourist Association will take you on the secured trail on the bridges and galleries above the rushing river through the picturesque, 1,600 meter-long Vintgar Gorge, which ends in a 26-meter waterfall. One can return on the same trail or through Sv. Katarina with its wonderful views of the Karavanke Mountains, Dolina, Bled and its surroundings, and Mount Triglav.
