Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar), Bled

(4.7/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Cut deep between two hills overgrown with beech forests, Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar) is full of small waterfalls, rapids, and erosion potholes. Cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer and mayor of Gorje Jakob Zumer discovered the gorge in 1891. Walk along the tourist path with narrow passages, wooden bridges, and galleries, constructed on the rocks in 1893. Listen to the roar of Radovna River echoing along the 1.6 km (1 mi) long gorge marked at the end by a waterfall plunging 16 m (52 ft). The gorge also features two manmade attractions: an arched stone railway bridge from 1906 and a dam. When you reach the end of the gorge, walk back across the meadows passing St. Catherine's church. Put Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar) and other Bled attractions into our Bled tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The trail is awesome, you can enjoy every second and every step of the way. Getting to the top, has a great treasure: the waterfall coming out of the middle of the rock and flows in an emerald green Lake. Fabulous!!! Pay to enter, it's worth every penny.

  • The scenery is beautiful and tranquil. We have never seen such clear water. The walk along the gorge is an easy boardwalk and about 1.5 km one-way. There are toilet facilities at the beginning and end...  more »
  • Great stop, but can be crowded with busses. Get there early or late, but the light is best during the midday when the sun is overhead and hits the water.  more »
