Julian Alps : Bovec
Jump to: navigation, search

Bovec (Italian: Plezzo) is a picturesque little town in the Slovenian Alps. It is located in the northwestern part of Slovenia. Surrounded by high mountain peaks it's a perfect spot for active vacation. Bovec is most known by the crystal clear waters of the Soča River. Its colour truly is as amazing as in the photos so don't forget to bring your camera with you.

In the summer Bovec turns into an adrenalin capital of Slovenia. There are many white water sports organized on the Soča River by the local sports agencies. The mountains offer many well marked trails for hiking. But if you are looking for the best view book paragliding. In the summer the main square hosts many town sponsored events.
