The Vrsic Pass takes you through Triglav National Park. There are 24 switchbacks up the pass and 26 switchbacks down the pass. Each switchback is numbered.
After Switchback #8, you'll see a Russian chapel. Vrsic Pass was built by over 10,000 Russian POWs during WWI. In 1916, an avalanche killed hundreds of the workers and this chapel was built where the final casualty was found.
