The Vrata Valley is one of the most well-known and, consequently, most visited valleys in the Slovenian Alps. As a result, it is also heavily burdened with traffic, especially on sunny weekends during the summer season. This not only creates an environmental strain and reduces the recreational value of the valley, it also offers little or no benefit to the two villages at the valley's entrance.
