Crystal clear waters, remains of virgin forests, rocky summits, endemic animals, diverse cultural heritage, friendly people and delicious local cheeses.
The Triglav National Park is part of the Julian Alps area. Majestic, mysterious, exciting, playful, and unique. Slovenia’s only national park proudly covers 840 square kilometres in the heart of the Julian Alps.
Endemic animal species, including the wolf, bear and lynx, and bountiful diversity of flora that boasts 19 endemites. In this land of myths and legends, people still live in perfect harmony with nature, attuned to its tradition.
Vast, enchanting forests, deep-carved valleys, high-altitude pastures, and crystal clear waters that flow down from the slopes of the country’s highest mountain, Triglav, into rivers, lakes, and brooks.
With its diverse climate and a wealth of landscape types, the Triglav National Park is home to around 7,000 plant and animal species, from tiny insects and freshwater fish to majestic red deer and a proud golden eagle.
The Alpine cultural heritage in Slovenia is exceptional, and its protection is a top priority task. Besides the famous Aljaž Turret on top of Triglav, the Park is home to another two cultural monuments of national importance.
