The Slovenian Littoral Region
In North-West Slovenia are the dramatic white limestone mountains, the Julian Alps, so named after the Julian dynasty who ruled on the southern side of the Alps. It is a landscape of soaring peaks, deep valleys & gorges, rivers of crystal clear emerald water, blankets of thick forest, and meadows filled with wild flowers; then in winter a stunning snowy winter wonderland. Towering over the numerous peaks is Triglav the highest mountain in Slovenia at 2,864 metres set within one of Europe’s first national parks; the Triglav National Park which was set up in 1903 to protect this unique area.
THE SOCA VALLEY
THE TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK
This is the only national park in Slovenia. It is staggeringly beautiful and so demands special treatment. This national park in the area of the Julian Alps in north-western Slovenia gained its name from Slovenia’s highest mountain, Triglav, which stands 2,864 metres high. Countless natural and cultural features are dotted around the diverse karstic mountain terrain with its picturesque mountain peaks and valleys, and there is ample opportunity for activities in the natural environment and for active leisure time.
Triglav National Park (TNP) covers 838 square kilometres by the border with Italy and Austria, accounting for four percent of Slovenia’s entire territory. It is almost entirely covered by the Eastern Julian Alps. It is the biggest protected area in the country, and has the status of a special protected area, which is stricter than in other landscape parks in Slovenia. This means very limited scope for building tourist infrastructure, in order for the park to maintain its most unspoilt quality, while at the same time it enables many people to enjoy its beauty.
This area ranks among the oldest parks in Europe. It was first protected in 1924, when an Alpine protection park was established. It was officially renamed Triglav National Park in 1961, but this only encompassed the close surroundings of Mt. Triglav and the Triglav lakes. The park acquired its current area in 1981. www.slovenia.info
BOVEC - The area of Kobarid, a small town under the mighty Mt. Krn (2244 m), extends beyond the town of Kobarid and its surroundings to Breginjski kot, Livško, the gorge of Trnovska soteska – centre of rafting and kayaking exploits – and the wonderful mountain villages under Mt. Krn (Drežnica, Vrsno and Krn).
The greatest impression was left on Kobarid by the First World War. The story of the town’s history and primarily of the Soca or Isonzo Front is told in the Kobarid Museum, voted best museum of Europe in 1993. The exhibits, the large reliefs of the urrounding mountains, the rich photographic material and mlutivision projections offer a sensitive narrative of those hard and bloody days near the Soca. Part of the events connected to the Soca Front were described in his famous novel A Farewell to Arms by then American war correspondent Ernest Hemingway.
The trail of Kobarid’s history is fascinating and instructive, leading us through time and the natural beauties of the surrounding environment.
Kobarid is the town in Slovenia that can boast the highest number of excellent restaurants in one single place. Even for the fussiest lovers of good food and excellent wine, a visit to Kobarid will be a great experience.
Like the other places along the Soca Valley, this too boasts an exceptional natural heritage and a broad range of possibilities for enjoying an active holiday. Rafting, kayaking, hydrospeed, mountain biking, paragliding, hiking and hill walking, fishing – in fact everyone can find just what they want to do.
TOLMIN - Tolmin is the largest town and an administrative centre of the Soca river valley. It features a high school and an excellent library and its greatest attractions are the old town centre, great sports facilities and the Museum of Tolmin where one can explore the history of the whole Posocje region.
Only a short walk from the town we can admire the untamed Tolmin gorges, the lowest entrance into the Triglav National Park, and a few kilometres away we can see Javorca, the most beautiful monument from the times when the First World War unleashed upon the Posocje region. It was entered into the list of European cultural heritage in 2006. The Tolmin municipality consists of several regions.
One can explore the story of Most na Soci, the famous archaeological site by a picturesque lake, by taking a walk along the cultural & historical path. The valley of Idrijca river is a popular spot among summer swimmers.
Trebuša is famous for its secluded country homes, gorges and waterfalls.
In addition to a breathtaking view, the plateau Šentviška planota also features the splendid Mary’s Church – one of the last creations of the renowned architect Plecnik.
In addition to ordinary trains, a museum train (steam-powered) and a car train (the most comfortable way of travelling between Bohinj and Bled) traverse Baška Grapa on the more than a century old tracks.
The tradition of alpine cattle ranches and with them the famous Tolmin cheese still survives in the surrounding mountain pastures.

"Magical emerald rivers, spectacular scenery, fabulous traditional Slovenian home"
We had the most fabulous week staying in this 200 year old traditional Slovenian cottage. Central to all that is offered in the Soca Valley, the home provided an exceptionally high standard of accommodation where all needs were considered. The hosts Hannah and Shaun were exceptional in providing advice on local attractions as well as those further afield. We particularly enjoyed the traditional village in which this house was situated. Surrounded by steely grey mountains and emerald rivers this home is an absolute must for those wishing to have an authentic experience in Slovenia.

"A really nice and relaxing holidays"
We spent one week in the Katric House in July with 2 children and a dog.
The first impression was that the house is much nicer in reality than on the photos! An old house, where the owners have tried to keep the old architectural structures and yet with modern interior. We (and the dog) felt very comfortable from the first minute on. Our children had the whole second floor for themselves - which they (and us) really liked.
Mosquito nets are on all windows, so you can sleep with all windows open!
The house is very quiet and yet you can reach Tolmin or Kobarid with the shopping possibilities in less than 10 minutes by car.
What we really liked was the fact that there are plenty of possibilities to go for walk with the dog, that you can walk in 5 minutes to Soca river, that you can start all mountain bike tours start directly from the house and that you can spend really nice and relaxing evenings on the terrace.
