Slovenia
Triglav 2'864 m

Triglav is the highest mountain in Slovenia and the highest peak of the Julian Alps.

The mountain is the preeminent symbol of the Slovene nation. A stylized depiction of its distinctive shape is the central element of the Slovenian coat of arms, and is in turn featured on the flag of Slovenia.

Triglav is situated in the middle of the Triglav National park.
