Triglav is the only national park in Slovenia. 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. Magnificent two-thousanders The majority of Slovenia’s 400 two-thousand metre mountains lie within Triglav National Park. Views of them are simply enchanting. Alongside Triglav, which in clear weather can be seen from virtually all parts of the country, there are the mighty peaks of Mangart, Jalovec, Prisojnik and Špik. Attractions and activities The mountains in Triglav National Park are laced with well marked and, where necessary, properly secured trails. Hiking is a mass activity in the summer months, while many of the more experienced mountaineers head up to the Julian peaks in winter, too. Along the way there are numerous mountain lodges and huts. A major feature of the park is Slovenia’s biggest glacial lake – Lake Bohinj. Various water sports are popular here in the summer, while in winter, when it freezes, crowds come to ski at nearby Vogel and to ski tour. In the Soča River area, which also falls within the park, the most popular pastimes are high-adrenaline sports along the Soča River. Rafting and hydrospeeding are unforgettable experiences. Chilly mountain valleys /br> /br> It is especially nice to visit Triglav National Park in the summer, when other parts of the country are sweltering at 30˚ Centigrade. Average temperatures in the park in the warmest month range from 20 °C in the valleys to 5.6 °C in the mountains, and in the coldest month from 0.7 °C and – 8.8 °C. Average precipitation amounts to more than 1500 mm. There are 120 to 146 days of precipitation a year. Recognition In 2003 the park was incorporated into the international network of biosphere areas, UNESCO’s MaB (Man and Biosphere). In 2008 part of the park – the Soča River area – was made Slovenia’s first European Destination of Excellence - EDEN.
