Kozjak waterfalls

Wasserfall Kozjak, Kobarid

by Tomo Jeseničnik, arhiv: STO

One of Slovenia’s most picturesque waterfalls - Veliki Kozjak.

The picturesque Kozjak waterfall is caught in a stony amphitheatre not far away from Kobarid. It can be reached by an easy walking path by the riverbed of the emerald Soča River.

The Kozjak stream, feeding the Soča river from the east (on the left), springs high beneath Mt. Krnčica (2142 m), and runs through many pools making six waterfalls. One of Slovenia’s most picturesque waterfalls, the Veliki Kozjak, was created in the outlet of the lower Korita of the Kozjak stream.

Approximately 250 meters lower, the water falls again. Here, the waterfall carved an underground hall. Its bottom is covered by a vast blue and green pool, and its walls are reminiscent of those in the Karst caves. A 15 meter high white water column offers its visitors an unforgettable scenery.

Access to the Kozjak waterfalls

The Kozjak Waterfalls are accessible from the Kobarid - Drežnica road. There is a turnoff to the falls soon after the intersection beside the Napoleon Bridge.
