Road over Vršič Pass
Snow on the road at Vršič pass. The weather is unpredictable, and even the whole year around doesn’t mean there are no winter conditions on Vršič pass.
Road conditions over Vršič Pass
The road at an altitude of 1,611 meters
Vršič is the highest pass in Slovenia, which is closed to all traffic during winter conditions. Thick snow cover also stopped traffic this year on the famous road between Kranjska Gora and Trenta. The road climbs to an altitude of 1,611 meters above sea level, and Russian prisoners built it during World War I. Recently, maintenance workers have cleared the road of its snow cover, and high snowbanks testify to the amount of fallen snow. Due to winter conditions and the risk of avalanches, the road over Vršič Pass is still closed to traffic.
