"Pools and Rapids" Vintgar Gorge Tip by easterntrekker

Vintgar Gorge, Bled: 35 reviews and 72 photos


The Gorge was discovered in 1891 by accident by Jakob ?umer, the Major of Gorje, and the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer . Radovna river which flows through Vintgar was very low. They were able to make their way through the otherwise impassable ravine. They were so taken with the natural beauty of the area they that they decided to establish a construction committee. The clear waters of the Radovna river with its waterfalls, pools and rapids is breathtakingly beautiful. Each turn offering another vista.
