Triglav National Park is the only national park in Slovenia.
It was established in its modern form in 1981 and is located in the northwestern part of the country, respectively the southeastern part of the Alpine massif. Triglav National Park (TNP) covers 838 square kilometers by the border with Italy and Austria, accounting for four percent of Slovenia’s entire territory. It is almost entirely covered by the Eastern Julian Alps. It is the biggest protected area in the country, and has the status of a special protected area, which is stricter than in other landscape parks in Slovenia. This means very limited scope for building tourist infrastructure, in order for the park to maintain it’s most unspool quality, while at the same time it enables many people to enjoy its beauty.
