Brus or Belca's klavže (barrier with sluice gates) is a stone made dam with a roof on a Belca creek in the Idrija hills, a few kilometres away from a settlement Idrijska Bela. It was built between 1767 and 1769 as a replacement for a wooden barrier at this point. Like the rest of dams, it was intended for wood floating for the needs of the mercury mine in Idrija. Closed damming held around 100.000 m³ of water, which at the opening of the sluice gates floded away a pile of trunks, stacked under it, down the Belca river towards Idrija. The system of dams worked until the year 1926, when the flood badly damaged rakes on the Idrijca river and when it was replaced by road transport. In 2001 it was declared as a cultural monument of national importance, while the wider area is also protected as part of the Zgornja Idrijca Natural Park. In the context of the Idrija mercury mine it is also listed among the UNESCO world cultural heritage.

On this day, October 15, 1844, one of the most important Slovenian poets, Simon Gregorčič, was born in Vrsno. Since Gregorčič's times to this day, much has changed, but his songs still live among us. There are not a lot of Slovenians that do not know his poem "Soči", in which he so heartbreakingly describes one of the most beautiful Slovenian rivers that yesterday celebrated its day. »How beautiful you are, lucid daughter of the mountains, so graceful in your natural beauty,« wrote Gregorčič, and it is probably no coincidence that the emerald beauty celebrates its day just one day before the poet's birthday.

Debenje is a small village near Lig in the municipality of Kanal ob Soči. More famous than the village itself is a hill above it, where on the unique viewpoint stands the church of St. Jakob. The church was built in the first half of the 14th century. According to its architectural features, it belongs to the so-called "Istrian group" of church buildings, whose main characteristic is that the shape of altar space, does not appear in the exterior of the building. The altar has two pillars with corinthian capitals on its sides, and a half a meter high stone statue of St. James above it.

Zaročenca waterfall is located in the Predelica canyon near the village Strmec. About 30 m high waterfall got its name in the days when there was a stone block at the top of the waterfall, which split the waterfall in two flows, which were then merged again. The waterfall is falling over the reddish walls where compressed layers of rocks can be seen. At its bottom it creates a wonderful green pool.

Dear followers, today we present you one of the coolest rides in the Posočje region. The locals call it »karukula«, it is a kind of a lift, operated by hand, that takes you over Tolminka river. This drive, in the middle of the valley, where time seems to have stopped, is a real adventure. Tolminka valley invites us with its remoteness, solitude, silence and many natural and cultural sights. When hearing the name we first think of the Tolminka gorge - an extraordinary natural heritage in the vicinity of Tolmin, but there is so much more hidden here. You are invited to discover more by yourself!

Mangart is Slovenia’s fourth highest mountain and is very popular during the summer months due to its convenient access. Namely, the Mangart road (Slovenia’s highest road) takes you above 2000 altitude meters just below Mangart's rocky summit pyramid. There are two routes running across it: the Slovene route is rather demanding, but the Italian is somewhat easier. This is a relatively short tour onto a majestic mountain with a magnificent view. There is still an ongoing debate over its name. Is it Mangart or Mangrt? Either way, the mountain is fantastic! (www.slovenia-trips.com)

High above the stream of the Tolminka river rises a wooden shrine – the Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca. It is dedicated to fallen Austro-Hungarian defenders of the Tolmin battlefield on the Soča (Isonzo) Front (1915–1917). As the finest monument to the First World War in the territory of Slovenia, in 2007 the church was classed as a historical monument bearing the European Cultural Heritage sign. It is also one of the stations along the historical Path of Peace trail, which links together monuments and remains from the First World War in the upper Soča region. It was built by Austro-Hungarian soldiers who were skilled in various trades; the walls and lower section are made of stone, while the upper part of the construction is of larch. The viewing terrace by the church reveals a view of the magnificent Rdeči Rob (Red Margin), the enchanting chain of the Tolmin-Bohinj mountains, and also takes in the rolling gentleness of the surrounding hills. In 2016, the church celebrated 100th anniversary of its construction.

Autumn is a fine time to get into the mountains. The backcountry is bursting with fall color, crowds have thinned to a trickle, and the bugs are all but gone. Besides vibrant fall color, autumn in the mountains brings shorter days, colder nights and quickly-changing weather. These volatile conditions can make even a simple day hike more risky than your average summer excursion. When hiking in the fall, pack some extra caution into your backpack and be safe! Happy hiking to you all! 😊 (www.wta.org)

Architecture sometimes makes even more beautiful view on nature and vice versa. One of these examples is the viaduct Predel, which was built in 2010 across the Mangart stream. It is 128 metres long, 10m wide and with 86m of arch span. It spans the stream's canyon at a height of around 60 m.

In the very heart of the Julian Alps, the valleys are carved in the high mountain ridges from all sides, one of them being the Koritnica valley. Koritnica springs from several streams and torrents under Mt. Mangart, Mt. Kotovo sedlo and Mt. Jalovec. It flows into the Soča river near Bovec, at Vodence.
The most interesting section of the Koritnica is at the Kluže fort, where the river has carved out a narrow gorge over a stretch of 200 m that reaches depths of 70 m (Kluže gorge, also known as the Koritnica gorge), which is protected as a Slovenian natural treasure.
Erosional gorge, carved deep into limestone, seems like a gigantic crack in the earth's crust. A real sight for the eyes. 😍

The Gačnik stream is the right tributary of the Trebušica river. It springs not far from the church at Vojsko at an altitude of approximately 1000m and flows into Trebušica at an altitude of 255 m. The valley of the Gačnik is one of the richest valley of waterfalls in Slovenia: at a distance of about 4.5 kilometers and a height difference of about 500 meters, we find more than 10 quite big waterfalls. Due to rock overlays, large quantities of moisture and slippery and steep terrain, access to most of the waterfalls is relatively difficult.

From Pogačnikov dom at Kriški podi opens beautiful view over the Trenta valley. Located in the heart of the Triglav National Park, the Trenta valley is remote from the everyday hustle-and-bustle of city life. Throughout the year this valley, where seasons seem to change slowly, is a retreat for the body and mind and a well of energy and joy of life. The pleasant warmth of autumn days clothes Trenta in yellow, and the animals start moving closer to the valley from their high-altitude summer grounds. This is the time highly valued by hikers who enjoy peaceful tours of the neighbouring summits and the life in the valley. (www.soca-trenta.si)

Šmartno is a picturesque village surrounded by defence walls with five original watchtowers in Goriška Brda. The settlement, which is likely to be formed on Roman foundations, presented a fortress at the strategical Venetian-Austrian border. From the 16th century until the second half of the 18th century it was an important strategic point of defence, included in the system of fortifications, which the Venetians never occupied. Today it is an architectural gem, a cultural monument, unique as a whole and in many details. The village is named after the Church of St. Martin, the biggest church in Brda region, whose bell tower was originally the fortresses tower. In it hangs a bell from the 1857 with the motif of the Epiphany. The inhabitants began to change the military character of the village in the 19th century, while the technical restoration of the village began at the end of the seventies of the last century.

There are not many mountain lakes in Slovenia, but those that are, are close to our hearts. The high mountain world of the Kriški podi is the home of Alpine lakes, which are considered important values ​​of the Triglav National Park. These are our highest lakes, scattered over the Karst desert of the Kriški podi: Zgornje (upper) (2154 m), Srednje (middle) (1939 m) and Spodnje (lower) Kriško lake (1880 m), which is the largest and due to the grassy coast also the most popular. It is believed that the fourth lake is hidden somewhere, but it is supposed to be covered with snow for most of the year. The lakes are lying so high that there is little life in them and no fish at all. They are located in the vicinity of many other interesting things, for example a few chasms and, of course, a friendly Pogačnikov dom hut.

In the past week, we've already written about this year's first snow in the Soča valley. However, there are some peaks covered with snow quite a lot. In the upcoming days the weather will be more sunny, so we advise increased caution, if you are going to the snow-covered mountains. In case that we are not adequately prepared and equipped, it is better to observe them from the valley, rather than to risk any injuries.

Zaslap mountain pasture lies on the shelve under the steep foot of the Mt. Krn, where for many years presented cheese trade tradition. Until the year 2006 they supplied the lower positioned Kuhinja with milk through pipes, from where they took it to a nearby dairy for further processing. Nowadays, pipes are used for water pumping, which is very welcome as the near source of water often dries up, while water is urgently needed for the cattle as well as for the work and life on the mountain pasture. The megalithic monument can also be traced there - the remains of one of the megalithic cultures from thousands of years ago, reminiscent of the English Stonehenge. People with a variety of health problems were coming there thousands of years ago. However, the specific energy is supposed to be presented inside the circle even today.
