List of mountains in Slovenia

Mountains of Slovenia are part of the Alps and of Dinarides. They can be divided into:

  • Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe) in the northwestern part of Slovenia. The highest peak is Triglav - 2,864 metres (9,396 feet) above sea[1].
  • Karavanke - a massive ridge that forms a natural boundary between Slovenia and Austria. The highest peak is Stol - 2,236 m ((7,336 feet)[1].
  • Kamnik–Savinja Alps (Slovene: Kamniško-Savinjske Alpe) lie to the south of Karavanke. The highest peak is Grintovec - 2,558 m (8,392 feet) above sea[1].

In the Inner Carniola, the highest peaks are Veliki Snežnik (1,796 metres (5,892 ft), part of the Snežnik plateau and the highest non-Alpine peak in Slovenia, and Suhi vrh (1,313 metres (4,308 ft)), part of the Nanos plateau. They're both part of the Dinaric Alps.

In the southeast, near White Carniola there is a mountain ridge called Gorjanci. In the Slovenian Istria, the highest peaks are Slavnik (1,028 m) and Vremščica (1,027 m).
