Whether you are planning a visit to Slovenia for the first time or are a frequent visitor, there are many things to see and do in Bovec. This mountain town is surrounded by the Julian Alps and is situated in northwest Slovenia. Known for its scenic beauty, the town offers a wide range of activities and attractions. Whether you are interested in history, nature, or culture, you can find something to suit your needs in Bovec.

Tolmin Gorge

Located in western Slovenia, Tolmin Gorge is a natural wonder. It is a narrow gorge where the Zadlascica and Tolminka rivers meet. Besides its natural beauty, Tolmin Gorge is an excellent place for photography.

If you are interested in learning more about Tolmin, you should visit the Tolmin Museum. This facility showcases archeological artifacts from the Iron age and the cultural heritage of the Tolmin region. The museum also features old hair winders, wooden clogs, and ethnological collections.

Another interesting feature of Tolmin is the Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit. This church is a wooden building above Tolmin. It is dedicated to the Austro-Hungarian defenders of the Isonzo Front. It has been declared a European Heritage Site.

Kozjak Waterfall

Located near Kobarid in western Slovenia, Kozjak Waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Slovenia. The falls are situated in a cave-like area and the emerald-green pool below the waterfall is perfect for swimming.

The hike to the waterfall is not very strenuous. It takes around 20 minutes to reach the waterfall from the parking lot. The trail starts in a green meadow and winds along the side of the Soca River. The path is covered with dense vegetation, so it blocks some of the sun. You will also cross water a few times as the walk goes along.

Virje Waterfall

Virje Waterfall is a spectacular natural attraction. It is located near Bovec, in the Soca valley. It is a lesser known natural wonder in Slovenia.

It is best visited in May and June. This is the time when the water is at its most majestic. You can take a stroll to the top of the waterfall for a new perspective. You will find that the waterfall has a very interesting shape.

The Virje Waterfall is located on the Glijun Stream. The water comes from a karst spring that is located above the waterfall. It falls in a 20-metre wide waterfall.


Ravelnik Museum

Located in a beautiful forest near the town of Bovec, the Ravelnik Museum offers visitors the opportunity to explore the remains of the Austro-Hungarian defense line. The line ran from Mt. Rombon, crossed the Bovec basin, and was reinforced after August 1915. It was used during the Isonzo Front, where fierce fighting took place.

Several archaeological sites indicate the existence of an early Iron Age settlement in the area. Individual Iron Age burial grounds are located in the region. The presence of a skeleton grave with glass beads is also evidence of the presence of an early medieval settlement.

Thirsty River Brewing

Among the many things to do and see in the small town of Bovec, Slovenia, one of the best ways to get a taste of the local flavor is to try some local craft beer at Thirsty River Brewing. Located on the main square, the brewery produces a few hundred liters of small-batch, local beer a day, and is open seven days a week. You can take a tour of the facilities or just stop by for a cold one.

It's hard to pick a favorite when it comes to beer-friendly Bovec hotels, but you can't beat Thirsty River's well-run operation. From a full-service bar to free Wi-Fi to a daily breakfast, the hotel offers something for everyone.


Adrenaline-check Eco Place
