Founded in 1924, Triglav National Park is one of the oldest and largest Alpine nature reserves in Europe. The park covers some 82,000 hectares of the Kamnik and Julian Alps and is named for Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia ("Triglav" is diety in Slavic mythology). The peak was first climbed in 1778 and today the area around the park features many outdoor activities including hiking, climbing, whitewater rafting, canyoning, mountain biking and more.
