Aljazev Stolp on Triglav

Metal flag on top of Aljazev Stolp pillar shows the year it was build on the top of Slovenian highest mountain Triglav (2864m). It was erected by Jakob Aljaz, a priest from Dovje village in Sava river valley, who was provoked by the forceful ‘germanization’ of Triglav and Slovenian part of Julian Alps. Today it is protected national historical monument.

In the clouds behind is Skrlatica (2740m) and its group.
