Triglav Lakes Valley – called also the Seven Lakes Valley is one of the Julian Alps’ best gems. It gained popularity in the 19th century and the first mountain hut was built back in 1880! The government at the time protected the valley in 1924, which is considered the year of the first national park in Slovenia. Although it is called the Seven Lakes Valley, there are actually more than seven lakes, some of them not much bigger than a pond.
