Triglav Nationalpark Rundtour
Der Vrsič-Pass auf 1611 m ist der höchste Gebirgspass Sloweniens
The fourth route in a series of 12 most beautiful routes motorcycle country Carinthia.

The tour falls under the category "medium" (Austria uses "easy, medium and hard"). Wide winding roads, criss-crossed by slightly narrower roads and passes with bends, but doable.
Sufficient stops on the way with a nice view or to eat or drink, gets 5 *.

From Hermagor south-east along the B 111 to Arnoldstein. Continue to Hart, there turn towards Kranjska Gora - Slovenia. About the Wurzenpass (1073 m) - with its narrow, winding roads and up to 18% slope offers here driving pleasure of a special kind. (To visit the Bunker Museum, past RP 3 500m further to the left.)
Along the Sava begins the challenging road to Vrsič Pass. Before we start this ride we will have a coffee break at RP 6 at Lake Jezero Jasna. and on RP 7 you can visit a Russian chapel.

The Vrsič pass at 1611 m is the highest mountain pass in Slovenia and represents the connection between Kranjska Gora and the Trenta valley. The 48 hairpin bends in the northern part of the pass road are partly made of cobblestones.
The pass road was built in the years 1914-1916 as a military road into the Isonzo Valley by Russian prisoners of war. More than 400 of them died on an avalanche in March 1916 alone. On the north side the "Russian Chapel" (Ruska kapelica) reminds of the victims RP7. Through this road was a large part of the supply for the great offensive of Austria-Hungary and Germany in the Twelfth Battle of Isonzo. Today's course follows only partially the original route; the south side is mostly newly created.
At the Vrsič Pass you have a wonderful panoramic view over the Triglav National Park.

At point 12, you can make another stop to visit Štoln. Štoln is the name of the 4.8 km long tunnel, the Log pod Mangartom (in Slovenia) with the mine in Cave del Predil (in Italy). During the First World War, this is an important strategic transport artery that allows the safest flow of military equipment and soldiers into the intractable vicinity of the first front line. It is the starting point of the peace path.

Continue towards Soča and Predelau (Predil), to Italy. Coffee stop and photo stop at route point 14 is possible. In the valley the route continues towards Sella Nevea, Chiusaforte, to Moggio. There you turn to the north running Val d'Aupa direction Pontebba. Now it goes up to the Nassfeld Pass (Passo di Pramollo) at 1552 m. The descent on the Austrian side offers great curves and bends, which, paired with a good road condition, make every biker's heart beat faster.

About this region
Friuli Venezia Giulia (pronounced [friˈuːli veˈnɛttsja ˈdʒuːlja]) is one of the 20 regions of Italy, and one of five autonomous regions with special statute. The regional capital is Trieste. The name used to be hyphenated as Friuli-Venezia Giulia until 2001. The region is called Friûl Vignesie Julie in Friulian, Furlanija Julijska krajina in Slovene and Friaul Julisch Venetien in German, three languages spoken in the region. The city of Venice ("Venezia") is not in this region, despite the name. Friuli Venezia Giulia has an area of 7,924 km2 and about 1.2 million inhabitants. A natural opening to the sea for many Central European countries, the region is traversed by the major transport routes between the east and west of southern Europe. It encompasses the historical-geographical region of Friuli and a small portion of the historical region of Venezia Giulia – also known in English as the Julian March – each with its own distinct history, traditions and identity.
