Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero

4.1
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Bohinjsko Jezero
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.

    There are so many beautiful waterfalls and gorges to see around here that do not linger to this! Parking fee and entrance with (3€ + €3). Go your way!

    Beautiful waterfall but very touristy. In the summer season very crowded, especially in late morning to mid afternoon. You stand with the masses behind a fence to the waterfall. Both for parking and access waterfall you have to pay. Visit is definitely worth the climb, but there are nicer waterfalls in Slovenia, such as Pericnek near Mojstrana and Gozd Martuljek near Kranjska Gora.

    Beautiful nature and waterfall. The walk to this waterfall could be a little challenge for those who don't do physical workout regularly. But along the way, you can take a small break while enjoying t...  more »

  • 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.
