Visit Savica Waterfall

The warring clouds have vanished from the skies; The war of men has ended with the night. The morning sun gilds the tree heads that rise. Supreme above the Carniola's snowpeaks white. The lake of Bohinj calm in stillness lies. No sign of strife remains to outward sight; Yet in the lake the fierce pike never sleep, nor other fell marauders of the deep.

The duality of the Savica Waterfall

Unique. Mysterious in its duality. Praised in Slovenian poetry, mystical and mysterious. The spring of the largest Slovenian River, the Sava River. The Savica Waterfall is not the only waterfall in the world that can be called a dual waterfall, although this is the reason why it's so enchanting. And it's also not the only waterfall in this area - in the land of Zlatorog (Goldenhorn). Therefore, it is surely unique in other dualities that are part of its story. Visit the Savica Waterfall The waterfall springs up in the open amidst the steep wall of Komarča and then elegantly in two sections drops 78 down into the green water basin. The Savica Waterfall is one of a kind - each drop is doubled and creates the most unique natural phenomenon in the world. The Savica Waterfall is twice more unique. Why?
