For the Slovenes, the Triglav National Park is a supreme example of natural and cultural heritage. It is also one of the oldest national parks in Europe. Not only that, it is a gallery of uncommonly beautiful images, an open-air museum and a refuge for restless spirits seeking harmony with themselves in harmony with nature. The excellence and professionalism of the enthusiasts who run the park conserve for us the originality of nature and the cultural landscape and ensure the co-existence of nature and modern man.

The Triglav National Park is the pride of the tourist region of the Julian Alps. It is the only national park in Slovenia. The park was conceived in as long ago as 1906 and originally centred on the area of the Triglav lakes. In 1981 the park was enlarged. It now covers an area of 83,807 hectares and includes practically the whole of the Slovene Julian Alps. The highest point of the park is the peak of Mt Triglav (2864 metres), the highest mountain in Slovenia, from which the park takes its name; the lowest point is in the Tolminka gorges (180 metres). The unique natural and cultural heritage of this area of Slovenia is fully contained within the borders of the Triglav National Park.

The Triglav National Park Act regulates protection of the park at two levels. In the central area priority is given to nature protection. This area is also given over to research, education and visits. In the outer area, where people live and work, greater emphasis is placed on protection of the cultural landscape and encouraging close-to-nature management and activities typical of the area.
