This ravine in the immediate vicinity of Gorje, approximately 4 km north-west of Bled, was discovered by Jakob Žumer, the Major of Gorje, and the cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer in February 1891. The discovery was accidental and took place at a time when the water level of the Radovna river which flows through Vintgar was very low. The beautiful gorge was soon equipped with wooden footpaths clinging to the walls, making this a favorite tourist destination - and quite frustrating to photograph.
