Overview

It is the deepest canyon in Europe, and second deepest in the world after the Grand Canyon of Colorado, USA. 78km long, and up to 1.300m deep, this "tear of Europe", as it is also called, is a great natural and tourist attraction not only in the area, but in the entire country.

It's a very nice view from up the Trail from zabljak, a trail which even children or inexperienced hikers can manage. Just be very careful not no fall! From the top there's a trail going at 90 degrees down the hill that will take you...More

The zipline is amazing, for 10 euros per person you get to see the river from above and get some fantastic views and pictures. Best time to visit is in the morning so you get the best light.
