Mount Triglav is the highest and best-known mountain in Slovenia. It rises 2868 meters high, which also makes it the highest peak of Julian Alps. It lies in the heart of Triglav National Park, Slovenia’s only national park.
Triglav is a symbol of Slovene nation. Every Slovenian ‘has’ to climb it at least once. At the top of the mountain stands Aljaz Tower, a landmark and a symbol of the Slovenes and Slovene territorial sovereignty.
Triglav National Park is a paradise for those who love unattained nature. It offers spectacular views of picturesque mountain peaks and valleys and there are many natural and cultural sights to enjoy.
The first recorded ascent was made by four locals back in 1778. The four made history and was named “the four hearted man”. Because of difficulty and time, this was important mountaineering milestone.
