Interactive map with sights

The Pokljuka Gorge is one of the most beautiful gorges in Slovenia. Now is possible to visit gorge only in your own responsibility, because everywhere lies the remains of trees and branches. In spring time is also dangerous because of falling stones. Some parts of the Pokljuka Ravine are ruined. It is accessible from the road of Bled, over villages Zgornje Gorje, Krnica and also from Zatrnik. It belongs to Triglav National Park. It is 2 kilometres long and 40 metres deep. It was made from flowing water of Pokljuka glacier. The remain is today brook Ribščica, affluent of river Radovna. You can see here beautiful natural bridge, Pokljuka hole and Side gorge. Pokljuka hole is the cave hall with two entrances and three natural windows. Through the upper entrance leads the way to the Old Pokljuka. Side gorge gets in rainy days 22 metres long waterfall. Great natural bridge is situated 24 metres above ground. People call round and narrow plateau kindergarten. Through the narrowest gorge to the most beautiful kinderkarten and smaller bridge is possible to go on to the wooden bridges – galleries, but they are unfortunately destroyed now. The wooden bridges, which were built in the year 1930 by members of Tourist society of Gorje, are called The Galleries of prince Andrej. The Pokljuka Gorge is at ground and at rock walls covered with a different kind of plants, like fern, forest flower and mountain flower.
