Vršič Pass

Vršič Pass

To get from Lake Bled to Soča River you can take a road with 50 hairpin turns built in World War I.

At the 8th turn there is a small Russian Chapel just to the left of the road. The chapel was built by Russian prisoners who built the road.

We saw a sign for a lodge and when we turned the corner we had to wait for a gigantic flock of sheep to cross the road.

We hit the 49th turn as we descended out of the mountains, wondering if the 50th turn really existed. After stopping at coffee shop we found the 50th turn further down the road.

Some of these pictures may have been taken by my mom from the passenger seat in the car.
