Slovenia – At 2,800 meters above sea level, Mount Triglav is the highest in the country and a significant source of national pride, even featuring on the Slovenian coat of arms. Milan Kučan, the former president, famously once said that it was the duty of every countryman and woman to scale the mountain at least once in their lives.

Triglav is the highest peak of the Julian Alps and the centerpiece of Triglav National Park, Slovenia’s only national park.

The park covers 880 square kilometers, or 3% of the territory of Slovenia. The Triglav National Park is among the earliest European parks; the first protection dates back to 1924 when the Alpine Conservation Park was founded.
