Hint by Triglav National Park: The south-facing and north-facing sides of the Julian Alps
The Peči ridge, which separates the Bohinj area from the Tolmin basin, marks the hydrological divide between the Soča and its tributaries that flow southwards into the Adriatic Sea, and the Sava, which drains into the Black Sea.
The watershed acts as a barrier between the mild Mediterranean climate and the cold alpine, or continental, Slovenia. Explore the differences between both sides of the ridge in terms of geomorphology, vegetation, and architecture, and marvel at the diversity of two different worlds.
