The Julian Alps are a region of Slovenia. They are part of The Alps and extend over the border into north-eastern Italy. They were named after Julius Caesar. They offer a wonderful alpine flair, that would have you swear you were in Upper Bavaria or Tyrol on a good day's hiking.


  • Bled — impossibly romantic mountain lake complete with castle, island and town
  • Bovec
  • Cerkno
  • Dovje-Mojstrana — the best starting point for hiking and climbing to Julian Alps
  • Idrija — the oldest Slovenian mining city, with more than 500 years of history
  • Jesenice
  • Kobarid - historical, culinaric and sport town
  • Kranjska Gora - village and ski area
  • Radovljica — old historical town, apiculture museum
  • Tolmin- the largest town in Soča Valley

Other destinations[edit]



Slovene is the national language. Most can speak Serbo-Croatian as a result to the Yugoslav experience (its also very similar) and many to most young people some English and or German. German also played a historic minority role in the region prior to WWII with many places having dual place names as a result. Today the Austrian and German tourists speak it.
