Built in 1940, the twelve-kilometre Mangart Road winds its way up to Mangart Saddle at 2,100 metres. It is not only Slovenia’s highest secured Alpine road. It also boasts stunning scenic views of the Alps. Countless hairpin bends and the characteristic summits of the Julian Alps are quite the sight to see!
