10 Beautiful Pericnik Waterfall Photos To Inspire You To Visit Slovenia

About The Pericnik Waterfall

The Pericnik is a stunning and very photographic waterfall in the Vrata valley inside the Triglav National Park, some 5 kilometres (3 miles) southeast of the village of Mojstrana, in the northwestern corner of Slovenia. It actually features two waterfalls: a 16-meter upper waterfall and a 52-meter lower waterfall. When we talk about the Pericnik Waterfall, we are referring to the spectacular jet of water of the lower waterfall, dropping down a 52-meter cliff. From the Koca Pri Pericniku mountain hut, which offers refreshments, it takes between ten and fifteen minutes to reach the bottom of the waterfall, and you can walk behind it and admire it from a very unique perspective! In winter, the waterfall turns into innumerable icicles in shades of green and blue and offers a really breathtaking sight.
