Overview
More
At an altitude of 1611 metres, the mountain pass at Vrsic is the highest in the eastern Julian Alps and provides a natural link between the Savska and the Soska valleys. You may wish to have a relaxing cup of coffee or even stay the night at the Ticarjev mountain hut, which is located at the top of the pass. There are five mountain huts on Vrsic offering you rest and refreshment. Just off the main road winding up Vrsic, at an altitude of around 1200 metres rests the Russian chapel. Whilst ascending Vrsic, you can admire the natural rock-carved face of the lovely maiden Ajdovska deklica and a natural rock-window created in the face of the Prisank mountain.

We knew the road was closed but we thought there will be some ending. But no. We drove all the way up to Vrsic. They said closed because in warm weather (fortunately evening and cold) the snow could melt and be dangerous. Well, what an...More

Good driving skills is a must, as the 49 hairpin turns are tough. But it was well worth the hairy moments for the amazing views and feelings of accomplishment afterwards. I would recommend this drive to confident drivers.
