Vrsic Pass - Julian Alps, Kranjska Gora

Renamed "Russian Road" in 2006, Vrsic Pass - Julian Alps 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.

  • Excellent view and close to nature away from the rush of the city. The only think is to be careful for the road as for driving. Not dangerous but also not the best road in the road as it is going high...  more »
  • We went in August over the Vrsic pass, here the impressions: positive:-->--> from Bovec that coming there is upper SOCA Valley along the one or the other fantastic vantage point--> on the pass is also beautiful views on the other side (North side) you can still visit beautiful small Russian wooden church and marvel at, I know something just from Poland or in a similar form from Norway, we were excited negative:--> on the pass so many people are on the road, which even do not pay attention, what to It happened around, you have to watch that one passes not 50 hikers who confuse the road with a playground--> many motorists apparently without any mountain driving experience, what is forced to risk for all (we have similar to so many Mountain passes and high alpine roads experienced ever again annoying) conclusion: the Vrsic is a super variant, to get back to the North, the nature is stunning, as is so often, too many people but cause some annoyance

  • Good driving skills is a must, as the 49 hairpin turns are tough. But it was well worth the hairy moments for the amazing views and feelings of accomplishment afterwards. I would recommend this drive ...  more »
