Triglav National Park, Slovenia: 21 reviews and 30 photos

 
 

The most beautiful river in Slovenia. The least polluted.

The upper part of the river and the valley is situated within the Triglav National Park and it is called Trenta.The valley as well as a big part of the Slovenian Alps was researched by a botanist, philosopher, researcher - Julius Kugy. In memory of him there is also a monument near the spring of river Soca.

The river is so clean, that's why it has a beautiful bright blue color and a lot of animals find their home in the river or near it. An example is the Soca trout. It is quite famous and it is good to eat as well. The last years the American trout has been pushing out the Soca trout, because they are more aggressive. The scientists are trying to save the fish, but it's going to be very hard and it's going to take a long time

If you visit the upper part of the valley, where the Soca is still untamed by dams, you will recognise in the wild, milky blue - green waters of the stream the headstrong character.
