Located near the town of Bovec in Slovenia, the Boka Waterfall is undoubtedly one of the most majestic and splendid waterfalls in Europe. Cascading from a height of 106 meters with a width of 18 meters, its grandeur, immense power, and picturesque surroundings make it a must-see for nature enthusiasts.

History

Boka Waterfall is a natural wonder, formed over centuries of geological activity in the Julian Alps, with melting snow and karst springs feeding its powerful flows. While long known and admired by locals, it has become increasingly popular over recent decades as environmental tourism has grown.

The waterfall can be viewed from the main road between the towns of Bovec and Žaga. This road provides a vantage viewpoint of the waterfall. For a closer look, there is a marked hiking trail off the main road that heads towards the foot of the falls, taking about an hour to reach the best viewing area.
