Over 40% of Slovenia is covered by karstic limestone formations.  In the north-west of the country the Julian Alps are composed of white limestone.  In the area are lakes, gorges and caves that form beautiful scenery.  It is reported that there are over 8000 known caves in the country.  Below are some pictures taken on a recent holiday to Bled in Slovenia.  Lake Bled is particularly beautiful with its mid lake island and adjacent castle on a limestone cliff.
