Sotesko Vintgar, ki leži v neposredni bližini Gorij, 3.5 km severozahodno od Bleda, sta leta 1891 odkrila Jakob Žumer, gorjanski župan in kartograf ter fotograf Benedikt Lergetporer. Na raziskovalno pot sta se skozi skoraj neprehodno sotesko podala iz Spodnjih Gorij proti Blejski Dobravi. Odkrila sta toliko naravnih lepot, da sta se odlocila ustanoviti gradbeni odbor. Sotesko so uredili za oglede, predvsem za goste z Bleda. Javna otvoritev je bila 26. avgusta 1893. Soteska Vintgar, dolga je 1,6 km, je zarezana med navpicnimi stenami hribov Homa in Boršta, krasi pa jo Radovna s slapovi, tolmuni in brzicami. Pot vodi preko mostov in t.i. Žumrovih galerij ter se koncuje z mostom nad mogocnim 16 m visokim recnim slapom Šum. Zaradi naravnih lepot je bil Vintgar uvršcen med pomembnejše turisticne zanimivosti Slovenije, in število obiskovalcev je vsako leto vecje. V eni smeri obiska soteske lahko izkoristite možnost "razgledne pešpoti" preko Homa do sv. Katarine(zgodovinska cerkvica in prelep razgled). Pri vhodu in pri slapu Šum se lahko okrepcate v bifejih.


ENG_FLAG ENGLISH

The Vintgar gorge is one of the most popular natural features in Slovenia. From Bled the route leads north towards the village of Podhom. All along the road there are clear signs for Vintgar, and then by local roads the route leads to the entrance to the gorge itself (3.5 km from Bled). The gorge has been arranged for visitors for more than a hundred years. Along the narrow passage, where the Radovna river thrashes loudly against its rocky confines, there are paths, galleries and bridges constructed in the rock. The trail runs through the 1600 m long gorge. The Radovna flows over cascades and rapids, and in clear pools it finds peace for a few moments. The Vintgar gorge ends at the delightful Šum waterfall, the highest river fall in Slovenia. At the waterfall the trail leaves the Radovna and rises up a track heading south-east to the chapel of St Catherine above Zasip. From here there is one of the finest views over the entire area of Bled. The way back goes down to Zasip and then along the road to Bled.
