What magnificiant inspiration lies behind the creation of these places, nestled cosily at the foot of the Julian Alps and surrounded by the green forests of Pokljuka and Mežakla. The name Gorje translates to highlands. The Gorje villages are the last big villiges under the Triglav mountain.

It is true what Ivan Godec once said: »Anyone attempting to describe the beautiful countryside of Gorenjska needs use very little imagination or dazzling embellishment. He should write down only that which an ordinary observer sees and it will certainly be enough.«
