Where Slovenia gets close to heaven
Come closer to the sky on the Triglav and enjoy the idyll.
After our refreshments in the idyllic surroundings, we set off for the Vršič pass, Slovenia's highest mountain pass. A quietness comes over the group as we get out of the van. The view of the rugged, snow-covered Mount Triglav, majestically perched in the midst of fir forests, leaves us in a venerable silence. To the Slovenes, it is a holy mountain. It translates as "The Three-Headed One". At an altitude of almost 3,000 metres (9,395 ft), the "Three-Headed One" is also the one that gets closest to the skies.
