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.

There are actually two Pericnik waterfalls, the Upper Pericnik which is 16 metres high and Lower Pericnik which is 52 metres high. The larger, lower one is more known, therefore the word Pericnik is usually used for this one. Image by Leancy / CC BY-SA 3.0
