45 Beautiful Landscape Photos From Around Slovenia By Branko Cesnik

About The Photographer

Branko Cesnik is a passionate landscape and nature photographer from Pivka, a small town in the Karst region of southwestern Slovenia. He is 52 years old and has been interested in photography since his school years. During primary school he took photography classes and had a lot of fun with film and the school’s darkroom. His childhood ambition was to become a professional photographer, but life took him in other directions. He put his interest in photography on hiatus for more than 30 years and it was only three years ago, after he got a DSLR camera as a present from his children, that Branko decided to take up his hobby again.

It is generally acknowledged amongst landscape photographers that the quality of light is what really makes a photograph special. With this in mind, Branko tends to shoot in the morning and at the end of the day when the light just either side of sunrise and sunset can transform an already interesting scene into something even more engaging. He also frequently watches the sky and keeps an eye on local weather maps in hope of capturing something special. For him, the weather is one of the most important aspects in outdoor photography. It doesn’t matter how much you spend on gear the fact is weather can make or break a photo and if you are able to predict the weather before you head of for a shoot you have much better chances of securing that amazing shot you are after. The satisfaction of capturing a beautiful location under the perfect light is a feeling he strives for constantly.

Branko firmly believes a good photograph tells a story and creates a feeling within the viewer. In his shots he tries to transmit what he felt being in that place at that exact moment and to share his experience. He tries to find and explore different places and capture a scene that tells a story or sparks emotion. This process often takes days of planning, location reconnaissance, waiting for the best light and weather conditions and searching for the best composition. Luckily, Slovenia provides plenty of beautiful locations for nature and landscape photography. Since the camera doesn’t always capture the scene exactly as the human eye sees it, he does, however, use highly advanced techniques in the post-processing phase to obtain the result he is looking for.

Branko has been published in several local magazines, has received a couple awards from photo clubs and even the Photographic Association of Slovenia and has exhibited in local galleries. He has also earned several achievements on GuruShots, a photography contest site where photographers showcase their work.

Below is a selection of landscape and nature photos from around Slovenia that Branko Cesnik kindly shared with us.

The Logarska Dolina landscape park and alpine valley in Slovenia
Roughly meaning ‘Woodsmen’s Valley’, Logarska Dolina is considered as one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in the European Alps. The valley, classified as a natural reserve since 1987, can be found at the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in the far northern corner of Slovenia. The valley also provides a perfect base for hikes into the nearby Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

The Logarska Dolina alpine valley in the Kamnik Savinja Alps in northern Slovenia
The entrance to the pristine Logarska Dolina valley is simply breathtaking and incredibly picturesque. The road splits the valley into two parts, one half with a couple homesteads and cattle, and the other half with perfectly green grass. The road then visually disappears into monstrous snow-capped mountains of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. If you get a chance we would suggest that you take the time to get off the beaten path and experience the Logarska valley on your next European trip.

The Robanov Kot Landscape Park surrounded by the Kamnik Savinja Alps in northern Slovenia
Tucked into a remote corner of the Kamnik Savinja Alps in northern Slovenia is a valley known as Robanov Kot, a sister to the more famous Logarska Dolina valley. Under the high lofty silver peaks, old ways of life have changed little over the past few centuries, and the landscapes offer visitors a glimpse of alpine life as it once was.

An old wooden barn in the Robanov Kot valley and landscape park in northern Slovenia
Just after the Second World War, the Robanov Kot valley became one of the first areas in the country to receive official protection. The legislation prohibited the construction of new buildings, a restriction that helped to preserve the valley much as it has looked for centuries. The protections were strengthened even further in 1987, when the area of the Robanov Kot valley became protected as a Landscape Park.

It’s also one of the most unique and unusual, as it is dotted with semicircular wooden cottages that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Some visitors have likened the settlement to a Hobbit village. And there is indeed something fairytale-like about Velika Planina.

Bled Castle perched atop a steep cliff more than 130 meters above Lake Bled in Slovenia
For over a thousand years there has been a castle perched atop a steep cliff more than 130 meters above Lake Bled.

Vintgar Gorge, a very popular tourist attraction in Slovenia near Lake Bled
Vintgar Gorge is one of the most popular natural attractions in the country and the wooden walkways and bridges make for easy hiking in the 1.6 kilometer long gorge located in northwestern Slovenia, only 4 kilometers northwest of Bled. The trail, which is very easy to walk and suitable for anyone, leads past the rushing, foaming waters of the emerald Radovna River to the 13-meter-high Sum waterfall at the end of the trail.

Lake Palcje or Palsko Jezero, an intermittent lake in the Pivka basin in southwestern Slovenia
When water is abundant, Lake Palcje extends over one and a half kilometres in length and about half a kilometre in width and exceeds one square kilometre. But the surface and volume change constantly, on a daily basis, from year to year; no rules govern the movement of the water’s surface. However, the quantity of precipitation affects it the most.

The Church of the Holy Trinity is one of the most important historical buildings in the area. It’s fortified and perched on a grassy knoll above a small village of Hrastovlje in the far southwestern corner of Slovenia, close to the Slovenian coast. The wall was built by local residents in the 16th century to protect themselves from Turkish attacks. There are two hypotheses about the origin of the church. According to the first, it’s a Romanesque church from the 12th century. According to the second, it’s an example of the Istrian variant of Early Venetian Renaissance architecture from the 15th century.

Church of St. Martin standing on the lookout ridge above Silentabor with Sneznik in the background

The town of Postojna in southwestern Slovenia with the Julian Alps in the background
With about 9,200 residents, Postojna is only the 17th largest town in Slovenia, but each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world come to this small town.

The abandoned part of the Secovlje Saltworks on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia
Salt-making is one of the oldest economic activities on Slovenia’s Adriatic coast. The Secovlje salt pans are today the largest of the coastal marsh wetlands encompassing 650 hectares, and at the same time, the most important Slovenian locality from the ornithological point of view. More than 270 different bird species have been observed in the area of the saltworks, and 80 of them also nest here either permanently or periodically.

The little egret flying over the Secovlje salt pans on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia
The salt-pans have had a significant influence on the landscape of the Slovene Littoral. The systems of channels, levees, salt fields and everything that people created in this part of the country make a wonderful example of equilibrium with the environment.

Pastel-colored houses in the old town center of Piran in Slovenia
Piran’s main characteristics are its inviting atmosphere, relaxed vibe, colorful pastel-colored houses and narrow streets. This is the place to simply stroll around aimlessly. As Piran is really small, it won’t take you more than a few hours to wander through the entire town. And when you finish, just sit down with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy some people-watching.

An elevated view of Izola, a small fishing town in Slovenia
With about 16,000 residents, Izola is a small fishing town in southwestern Slovenia on the Adriatic coast of the Istrian peninsula. The Italian name of the town, Isola, means Island, which is odd because it’s not an island. At least, not anymore. The town of Izola was established on a small island in the 7th century, but was later connected to mainland by a bridge. A wall was erected later to protect the town, but was torn down in the 19th century and its remains used to fill in the sea between the island and the mainland.
