Mangart (or Mangrt – people are not sure yet how is should be called) is the third highest mountain in Slovenia with the height exceeding 2600 m, located between Slovenia and Italy. Even you are not an athletic type, please do not hurry up pressing back sign in your browser – Mangart is ready to surprise you.

 

Visiting Mangart mountain is a kind of unique experience in Slovenia because you can get as high as 2 072 m in a comfort of your own car, and it will be the highest road in Slovenia. Should I mention once again an unforgettable beauty of scenery you’ll see? The road will lead you to a kind of a valley called Mangartsko Sedlo, or Mangart Saddle in English.
