  • The Triglav National Park ranks among the most watered areas in Slovenia and Europe. The average precipitation level is highest in the western part of the park and amounts to about 3000 mm/m2.
  • The park is home to over 250 large and small springs. They are habitats of organisms that thrive in clean waters. Many springs are also a source of drinking water.
  • Alpine lakes are the pearls of the Triglav National Park. Mostly small water areas, lakes are highly sensitive to any changes in the environment. No bathing is allowed in these lakes.
  • Two important European rivers, the Sava and the Soča, take their source in the Triglav National Park. The Soča flows into the Adriatic Sea, and the Sava drains into the Black Sea. The dividing line between the two watersheds runs through the heart of the Triglav National Park.
  • Raised bogs are a special water ecosystem. They are extremely rare in Slovenia and deserve a special protection status. Raised bogs can support plants adapted to harsh living conditions. For more information about raised bogs, visit a theme trail on the Pokljuka plateau
