Admiring blooming daffodils on Mt Golica will be more NATURE FRIENDLY this year

Slovenia’s Mt. Golica is often called the “mountain of daffodils”. It is during the month of May when the long slopes of the mountain are carpeted with blooming daffodils, making the scenery look pretty dreamy and spectacular.

Once-a-year BIG outdoor event

No surprise that everyone in Slovenia wants to see this pretty scenery. While many come here to get a glimpse of ‘heaven on Earth’ which will feed their soul for the months to come, the others are on a mission for the best Instagram shot.

Golica (1835 m) is a peak in the Western Karawanks, on the border between Slovenia and Austria above the Slovene town of Jesenice.

But what most visitors have in common is getting there by car. Well, not at the top of the mountain, of course, but they leave it in the villages below the mountain.
