Renamed "Russian Road" in 2006, Vršič Pass 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. With our international travel planner, Kranjska Gora attractions like Vršič Pass can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

The road is fantastic when empty. Great scenery, pure pleasure. During the summer lots of tourist, cyclist so be careful. Slipery when wet. Otherwise fantastic for petrol lovers. more »

The Julian Alps are awe inspiring
Legendary review: 1. Awesome drive if the weather is good. 2. 50 hairpin bends with lookout points at many. 3. WC — Little hard to find.
Beautiful views at the top. Very steep drive up! If you have an older car, make sure to have plenty of gas and water in the car!
As we were driving from Russian Chapel, the weather got worsen upon reaching Vrsic Pass. It was middle of May and it was snowing heavily. The attached video says it all. However, it is a nice experience.
Pretty long hairpin curves and the road is not wide. There are spots where you can stop in between and enjoy the awesome view of mountains and pine trees. Those who want to Ski, they can. Mountain huts are also there along the path . Worth a drive!.
