Slovenia’s Kozjak Waterfall and Soča River Gorge – Images and Traveler’s Notebook

This is Slovenia’s Soča River, with its unique emerald hues, one of the country’s most loved natural attractions.

And below is the Veliki Kozjak Waterfall, or Slap Kozjak, widely regarded as one of Slovenia’s most beautiful falls. I have no reason to doubt either characterization.

Located a pleasant 30-minute walk from the Kobarid-Drežnica road that’s just a kilometer from the edge of Kobarid in the Soča River valley, reaching the falls requires an easy hike that’s most pleasant on a hot summer’s day when the Kozjak stream that hugs the path through a lush green forest acts as the most sublime natural air conditioning I’ve ever experienced.
