Vrsic, Kranjska Gora
(4.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Renamed "Russian Road" in 2006, Vrsic is a high mountain pass that runs through the heart of the Julian Alps. The road was built 1,611 m (5,285 ft) above sea level during World War I by Russian prisoners of war. Hike the cobbled road or cycle to the summit while admiring the exceptional vistas of other peaks and slopes. Watch for Ajdovska Deklica, a naturally carved face of a maiden in a rock. Have a cup of coffee or consider staying overnight at one of the five mountain huts along the way and at the top of the pass. The trails are easy to follow, even for children.

  • We drove pass from North to South. Picturesque views of the Julian Alps, beautiful wooden Orthodox chapel built by Russian prisoners of war during the first world war, wonderful mountain air!
