Soča emerald valley
Bovec and Kranjska Gora are connected by a winding road that takes you over the highest Slovenian mountain pass Vršič.
Kranjska Gora and the emerald valley are connected by a winding road that takes you over the highest Slovenian mountain pass Vršič. While driving along Vršiška cesta, you will pass the picturesque Jasna lake. Between the eighth and ninth bends, you will see the Russian Chapel on the left, which is one of the most essential and beautiful witnesses to the story of the construction of Vršiška cesta. A story that is dark and tragic but carries a strong message, and at the foot of Vršič, the Ajdovska deklica will greet you. The best viewpoint for her is between 22 and 23 bend, which is also a location of Erjavčeva mountain hut. You can enjoy her presents from the garden of the house. When you descend into the valley of the Soča river, you will be accompanied by the “clear daughter of the mountains” – the emerald Soča river – to Bovec and further towards Nova Gorica.
