Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero
Bursting from the underground of the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley and cutting deep into the gorge, Waterfall Savica is the most famous Slovenian waterfall. It cascades from a height of 78 m (256 ft) over two slopes forming the shape of the letter A. The water fills a pool artificially supported by a small dam. Cross the stone bridge over the Mala Savica and walk above the gorge through meadows and woods. A little cabin-like house at the top offers views of the waterfall and the lake. Bring a raincoat if you want to get really close to the waterfall to avoid getting drenched by the spray.

We walked from the opposite end of the lake and then tackled the steps up- it costs 3 euros to ascend but its well worth it, as the water is spectacular and there is a good viewing platform with views... more »
The water fall is a short hike up from the carpark. It mainly consists of steps up. Its a relatively easy walk. The waterfall was magnificent. Very powerful due to the rain from the previous few days. It was the end of April, but it started snowing heavily while we were walking up. While pretty, it made the climb tougher.. Generally not crowded but could be due to the poor weather.
This waterfall is simply stunning and amazing! We went there on winter so there wasn't so much water falling down but once you get close enough you feel the power and the beauty of this piece of Slovenian nature. I recommend to go on summer when there will be more water ;)
