The Emerald Beauty06/22/2018
The beautiful emerald colour is the key feature of one of Europe’s most gorgeous rivers. The river Soca, located in the Western part of Slovenia and in the Northeast of Italy, is an amazing natural tourist attraction visited by thousands of people every year. The distinctive emerald colour is precisely what makes it so alluring to masses of people. The river is ice cold, so, except in the warmest days of the summer, you will not see many swimmers. Holiday goers can take advantage of the numerous river rapids by partaking in a Soca river kayak adventure or by going Soča rafting. Both Soča rafting and paddling in a Soca river kayak are immensely popular, so you might need to reserve your term in advance. Besides trying Soča rafting or relaxing in a Soca river kayak, you can also go climbing on one of the nearby walls. You will certainly work a sweat, but the view will be glorious. While sports activities are a big part of the river’s appeal, some like a more relaxed vacation. For those, there are a number of delicious restaurants that offer appetizing local meals. If you add a delightful stroll by the river, you will wish you would have heard about this magical place sooner. The emerald beauty, however, has not always been a place of fun and enjoyment. During the first World War, the valley of the river was the location of many grand battles. For those who like history, there is loads to see and to learn. If you prefer movies to historical facts, Soca has something for you as well. The river was featured in one of the scenes in The Chronicles of Narnia, which proves its beauty is internationally noted. In any case, Soca is the pride of Slovenia and should be visited by anyone who likes spending their vacation near a crystal clear natural gem.
