Vintgar Gorge: Due to the change in the traffic regime and the optimisation of the distribution of visitors to the Vintgar Gorge, the physical ticket sales are cancelled daily from 9:30 - 13:00. Admission during this time is only possible with an online ticket. We recommend the following options for accessing the gorge: on foot, by bicycle or by the free shuttle bus (by car only to car parks P4 and P5 and from there on foot).
