When you visit Slovenia, this little gem has to be on your to-visit list! It’s located on the northern end of the Triglavski narodni park. A short 6 minute drive from Kranjska Gora, will bring you to the parking lot and a start of the trail. Just continue your way through the forest, until this amazing view opens up. No matter the season, it is guaranteed to leave you speechless and amazed with its beauty.

In 1992 Zelenci was declared a national reserve, for its fauna and flora. It’s also the spring of river Sava Dolinka. They are around 120m long and 20 wide. 

Name Zeleci (green) comes from the color of the lake, which is blue-green. The color of the water comes from the constant appearance of cold and clean water that is emerging through layers of marl.

Interesting fact: The lake has a constant temperature, around 6C, therefore it doesn’t freeze during winter.
