More than half of Slovenia is covered with green forests. Only Finland and Sweden have larger woodland areas in Europe. At the heart of the ancient woodland of

Kočevje and on the Snežnik plateau it is still possible to observe brown bears in their natural environment, but you must tread very carefully.

Andrew Adamson, the director of the Disney film “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”, filmed in Bovec, described this region using these words: “I was struck by

the beauty of this place as a director and as a tourist. It is wonderful here, the Soča valley is perfect for shooting a fairy tale.”
