The Soča Valley, the Julian Alps, Triglav National Park, and UNESCO
UNESCO declared the Julian Alps as the first biosphere reserve of international importance in Slovenia. Locals use innovative approaches to connect people with nature and thus preserve natural heritage, the biotic diversity, as well as take care of the continual development. The unique beauty of nature was also recognised by the filmmakers of The Chronicles of Narnia, who filmed some of the most exciting scenes of that famous movie by the River Soča.
