Hint by Triglav National Park: Pokljuka peat bogs
Peat bogs are a special feature of the vast forests that cover the heart of the Pokljuka plateau. They are a unique ecosystem characterised by peat mosses and mysterious carnivorous plants that thrive in the acidic environment of Europe’s southernmost raised bogs.
Most Pokljuka wetlands are not open to visitors due to their exceptional importance that is further emphasised by the amount of water stored in the bogs.
However, hikers are welcome to learn more about this mysterious ecosystem by visiting the short themed trail that has been set up around the easily accessible Goreljek bog. A natural water reservoir, the Pokljuka plateau supplies water to the Radovna Valley, the Bled basin, and further to Bohinj. Have a glass of water, Pokljuka’s precious asset.
