Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero

Waterfall Nature / Park
Bursting from the underground of the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley and cutting deep into the gorge, Waterfall Savica is the most famous Slovenian waterfall. It cascades from a height of 78 m (256 ft) over two slopes forming the shape of the letter A. The water fills a pool artificially supported by a small dam. Cross the stone bridge over the Mala Savica and walk above the gorge through meadows and woods. A little cabin-like house at the top offers views of the waterfall and the lake. Bring a raincoat if you want to get really close to the waterfall to avoid getting drenched by the spray.

  • About 2 hours including walk up to and down from the waterfall , and contemplation time there. Very beautiful indeed. 3EUR entry well worth it, as trail is well maintained. Parking is large but annoyingly costs an extra 3EUR, which almost makes me want to substract one star (I won't).
  • It is not a special waterfall. A viewpoint is not very close so you enjoy the waterfall from a distance. Path is convenient, mostly stairs though. We took 15 min to go up.
  • Absolutely stunning! The most beautiful waterfall we saw so far! Paid entrance (€3 adult). About 25 min. hike (medium difficult trail). Hint: parking is paid in the area and parking inspectors quick and efficient!
  • It took my breath away by its beauty . Well worth the hike..took me about an hour haha..
  • Get a slap of beauty as water comes out of rocks and falls down.
