Many visitors are expected in the only national park in Slovenia this summer. Therefore three short video clips focusing on the most important topics in the summertime were produced by the Triglav National Park Public Authority in collaboration with project partners VrH Julijcev project. As responsible visitors, everyone can contribute to protecting a highly diverse and rich nature. With helpful information for visitors, which is available all around the park, you can get informed quickly for your visit to be safe and your presence in the park’s area to be responsible and in line with conservation objectives.
How you, as a visitor can, contribute to nature conservation? Plan your visit so that the journey to the place you intend to visit is safe and responsible. You are encouraged to use public transport, leave your vehicle on official parking lots only, respect road crossing barriers and quiet zones for wildlife, stay on marked trails and collect all your waste with you. With responsible planning of your visit to Triglav National Park, you contribute to the quality of local life and your own experience and protection of the precious natural heritage of the only national park in Slovenia. Well-managed traffic in the summer (such as using public infrastructure and transport and respecting speed limits) is vital for nature protection. Responsible visitors who respect traffic rules will ensure a proper habitat quality for wild animals, particularly regarding their disturbance during mating, breeding and feeding.
“Be properly informed about the code of conduct before visiting Triglav National Park.”
Florijan Tišler, a Triglav National Park ranger, points out that we all should be familiar with the code of conduct before visiting any nature-protected areas to protect nature and ensure our safety.
“Let’s go to Triglav National Park by using public transport.”
Jurij Videc, a trail keeper (Alpine Society Laško), motivates people on behalf of the Alpine Association of Slovenia to visit the mountains of Triglav National Park by using public transport for their comfort and with respect for the environment.
“There are some lakes, rivers and streams in Triglav National Park where swimming is not allowed.”
Grega Šilc, a local and tourist guide from Bohinj, encourages all visitors of Triglav National Park to contribute to the preservation of alpine water in the same way as he teaches his children to contribute to the protection of precious nature.
Coming soon: Educational nature documentary VrH Julijcev
As part of theeducational nature documentary, a series of short video clips have been developed in the VrH Julijcev project. The documentary is going to be presented to the public in autumn 2023. By using the comments of people who live or work in the park or just visit it, the film will try to provide answers to the questions, how can we contribute to nature conservation of the only Slovenian national park? How can nature and human coexist in this area?
