Tips, hints and links
Hint by Triglav National Park: Grofova voda
The Grofova Voda (Count’s Water) spring is situated in the Sopotnica gorge above the village of Gabrje. The local inhabitants believe that the water from the spring has healing properties. Radiesthetic measurements place the water from Grofova Voda among the world’s top healing waters.
The water is clean, fresh, rich in minerals and has beneficial effects on the entire body. The spring comes from great depths, bubbles to the surface and never runs dry, not even during the driest periods. The water has a stable temperature, flow, colour and taste. Drinking this water refreshes us and gives us strength.
Not far from the spring there is a thick and vital tree, a mountain elm tree (Ulmus glabra). It measures 81cm in diameter and reaches an impressive height of 39m. It is double the size of all neighbouring elms of comparable age. The water from the spring flows underneath the tree, enriching it with energy.
The elm tree is the sentinel of the springs. Like the spring water enlivens the tree, it will also refresh you and fill you with the energy that you will need as you continue your hike along the Juliana Trail.
