The torrential character of the river which springs in the Breginj corner, under the long ridge of the mountain Stol, creates numerous gravel areas, pools and river beds which are ideal for swimming, fishing and lying around in the summer. In the summer, the temperature of the Nadiža river can be over 20°C.
The Nadiža river, which, according to the folk tradition, is believed to have healing powers, is home to numerous endemic species of freshwater fish from the Adriatic river basin, trouts, rainbow trouts and graylings. In some places, the embankments and the gravel areas are hugged by willow trees, which give the river a particularly magical appearance.
One of the most beautiful rivers in Europe, the Soča is an important natural treasure in the Triglav National Park. It is famous for its deep emerald colour and brisk rapids in the upstream area.
The area where Nadiža carved the deep river beds is adorned with the famous Napoleon bridge, which was used by Napoleon’s army in the 18th century to advance to Carinthia from the Veneto region. The bridge that stands here today was built after the first world war, on the remains of the original bridge.
