More about Tolmin Gorge
The road from Zatolmin to the village of Čadrg leads to the Tolmin Gorges at the very entrance to the Triglav National Park.

The path through the gorge is not long and is protected, but it does require care in some parts. The visit to the gorge can be extended to the Zadlaška (Dante's) Cave.

At 180 m above sea level, the Tolmin Gorge is the lowest point in the Triglav National Park and one of the most magnificent natural attractions in the Tolmin region.

The fact that this area has always attracted visitors is also evidenced by the legend of the visit of the famous Dante Alighieri in the 14th century, who is said to have been inspired to write the poem The Divine Comedy about Hell while visiting the mysterious troughs.
