At an altitude of 1611 metres, the mountain pass at Vrsic is the highest in the eastern Julian Alps and provides a natural link between the Savska and the Soska valleys. You may wish to have a relaxing cup of coffee or even stay the night at the Ticarjev mountain hut, which is located at the top of the pass. There are five mountain huts on Vrsic offering you rest and refreshment. Just off the main road winding up Vrsic, at an altitude of around 1200 metres rests the Russian chapel. Whilst ascending Vrsic, you can admire the natural rock-carved face of the lovely maiden Ajdovska deklica and a natural rock-window created in the face of the Prisank mountain.

Loved the cobble stone pavers in every corner going up.The views were awesome even though it was partly cloudy. A long delay going down as someone tried to take a hairpin corner to fast and didn't make it.

Perfect for hiking, some great trails. Lots of interesting places to visit. Beautiful scenery. If you take the road from Vrsic to Kranjska Gora, plenty of spots to explore along the river valley.

Stunning scenery, hairpin bends, narrow roads - what more can you say. Apart from this is a definite road trip when visiting the area. There is a view point at the top which provides stunning views of the mountains.
