European Diploma for Protected Areas: Awarded Areas in Slovenia

Triglav National Park

The Park, located in the Julian Alps and containing Mount Triglav, a symbol of national pride, covered 4% of Slovenia's territory and harboured 20% of the countryís water resources. Its great wealth in terms of biodiversity was explained by a combination of Mediterranean and alpine influences. The Council of Europe thus acknowledged the great value of the Triglav Park: breathtaking landscapes highly preserved, entire series of karst phenomena, a great diversity of natural habitats, a rich flora and fauna and an important cultural heritage.
