Attraction details
Type: Landmarks/ Points of Interest, Landmarks
Owner description: The large window that nature carved in the face of the Prisank mountain is the best-known in Slovenia. It is a staggering 80 metres tall and 40 metres wide. Its tattered rock cliffs and the large mound of scree below indicate that sometime in history, the rock was punctured at a weak joint causing a landslide that, through rock-deterioration and weathering, grew to its present day size. Which is the correct name, Prisank or Prisojnik? This is a dilemma that has been going on for more than a century. Both names mean the same in the Slovenian language and the name of the mountain indicates that its slopes are positioned to face the Sun.

Thanks to Tripadvisor contributors we found this amazing natural sight. Although the sun was not shining through it, but once spotted you'll be enthralled. There is a view point with lots of information, so you do not have to be a hiker to enjoy it.

Once you spot the window, you cannot look at this mountain range without it being so obvious, wonderful natural wonder!

Not sure this is worthy of a review, but you can see this at one of the viewpoints on the way up the Vrsic pass, coming from Kransjka Gora. We were lucky enough to visit when snow was around, but the pass still open.
