The Soca River in Slovenia is a 140 km long river flowing through the Western part of the country and then running over to North-Eastern Italy.

The most well-known region within this mountainous area is the Triglav peak, which is again famous as the highest crest of the place. The river then runs through some other cities such as Bovec, Nova Gorica, Kobarid, Tolmin and Gorizia. Finally, the Soca completes its journey as it enters the Adriatic Sea.
