Vintgar Gorge

Just a day trip from Bled is Vintgar Gorge a beautiful Canyon in the middle of nowhere.
In 1891 the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer discovered this ravine close to the city of Gorje. Due to the fast-growing tourist industry, the impassable chasm developed pretty quickly and is open to the public. Today we will explore this beautiful canyon.
