The Emerald Beauty From Slovenia
If the Soca river in Slovenia isn’t the most beautiful river on this planet, it is most certainly in the running. Nicknamed “The Emerald Beauty,” it has appeared in multiple well-known poems and inspired awe in many a wanderer and tourist.
The nickname is, as the photos below attest to, well-deserved. It is one of the rare rivers that maintains an emerald-green or even bluish color all the way down its 138 kilometers (~86 miles), making it a favorite of landscape photographers the world over.
