An inspiration for a poem in the treasury of the First World War

Explore the natural gem of our turquoise region with a light step!

A part of the Triglav National Park are the Tolmin Gorges. They represent the lowest entry point to the park. These are the gorges of the waters Tolminka and Zadlaščica. Around the water is a circular path where you can see the gorges from all sides. The most magnificent attractions are the thermal spring, the Zadlaška cave (Dante’s cave), a large triangular shaped rock (the Bear’s head) which got stuck between the walls of the Zadlaščica canyon and of course the Devil’s Bridge which hangs 60m above the river Tolminka. Dante’s cave is named after Dante Alighieri, a known poet from Italy. Supposedly the cave inspired him to write the famous Divine Comedy. The Devil’s Bridge was built by Austro-Hungarian soldiers during the Isonzo front.

It’s worth visiting the gorges in July and in August 2018 because then you can have a guided tour. Of course you can also visit them now too because they opened at the end of March already. Members of Hostelling International Slovenia get 20% off when buying a ticket.

It is estimated that you walk 4km in one hour and a half. Rest your eyes on the beauty that surrounds you, listen to the roaring water as the strength of mother nature and in the meantime you exercise. Don’t forget your hiking shoes for the best experience.

You can relax at the Paradiso hostel in the center of Tolmin, on the first floor of the Paradiso bar. As you can see, its name reflects the location – paradise. The common living space contains 2 computers, a TV, board games and a few books to read. Breakfast is included in the overnight stay. Rested and with a full belly you can explore Slovenia easier. HI Slovenia members get 10% off the regular rate

Enjoy hand in hand with mother nature where time simply stops!
