The Bled Gorge (Slovene: Blejski Vintgar) or Vintgar Gorge (Soteska Vintgar) is a 1.6-kilometer (0.99 mi) gorge located in Slovenia in the Municipality of Gorje near the settlement of Zgornje Gorje, four kilometers northwest of Bled. Discovered in 1891 by Jakob Žumer and Benedikt Lergetporer, the gorge was soon after equipped with wooden observation walkways and bridges, and was opened to the public on August 26, 1893. The walkways have been renovated several times since; a hydroelectric dam has also been built below the gorge and a railway bridge for the line between Jesenice and Most na Soči across it, but natural beauty of the Bled Gorge remains and continues to draw visitors.
