Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero

3.9
#3 of 18 in Things to do in Bohinjsko Jezero
Bursting from the underground of the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley and cutting deep into the gorge, Waterfall Savica is the most famous Slovenian waterfall. It cascades from a height of 78 m (256 ft) over two slopes forming the shape of the letter A. The water fills a pool artificially supported by a small dam. Cross the stone bridge over the Mala Savica and walk above the gorge through meadows and woods. A little cabin-like house at the top offers views of the waterfall and the lake. Bring a raincoat if you want to get really close to the waterfall to avoid getting drenched by the spray. With our international travel planner, Bohinjsko Jezero attractions like Waterfall Savica can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is a beautiful morning walk for 20 minutes. The path is made of stairs (a lot of them). But at the end it is all worth. The view is beautiful. On the exit (in the gift shop) the man working there.....  more »
  • Waterfall can be found at the end of the Bohinj Lake. A bit strenous walk - with more than 600 stairs - will take you up to the waterfall, which comes out the rocky cliff. It is pretty outstanding...  more »

  • Great walk to a lovely waterfall. The guide at the booth mentioned a cafe 20 minutes away, half way round the walk, only attempt this if you're well equipped footwear wise! It's all up hill and hard work underfoot, the views were worth once at the top though!
  • Far less impressive than the promotional material suggests, at least the part that is visible from the public path. Looks like there used to be some kind of fortress right under the waterfall, a bit of information about this would have been nice, but we get nothing. The walk up there is nice though, with a few places to rest or have lunch while enjoying a view of the surrounding mountains or forest. Entrance is paid, 3 euros which are used to maintain the park, perfectly fine of course. Unfortunately they should also invest a bit in keeping the public restroom near the entrance a bit more clean, it's all dirty and smelly.
