Things to do-
Attraction type Geologic Formations
Tolmin Gorges – Probably Tomlin’s main attraction. Lying at the lowest point of the Triglav National Park the confluence of the dramatic Tolminke and Zadlaščice gorges is a wonderful spot and can be easily explored. Nearby is Dante’s cave where the writer spent some time in exile. The gorges are best accessed from Zatolmin, just north of the town.
