Named after Triglav (2,864m), a mountain carrying great symbolic weight for Slovenians, Triglav National Park is one of the oldest parks in Europe, with the first efforts to protect the area dating back to 1906. It spans nearly 84,000 hectares, almost the entire area of the eastern Julian Alps. Apart from preserving the natural environment, which is the fundamental aim of any national park, Triglav National Park is responsible for preserving remarkable natural and cultural values, which take the form of crystalline waters, deep gorges, remains of ancient forests, rich alpine flora and characteristic fauna, as well as the impressive cultural and historical heritage.
