Ajdovska deklica is the rock face of a maiden that found its own special place in folk fable. Legend has it that the Ajdovska maidens foretold the people of Kranjska Gora their fortune at birth. They also advised the people when to sow their crops and when to harvest them. One of the maidens foretold the son of a hunter that he would kill the Goldenhorn which inhabited the surrounding mountains. This prophecy angered the other maidens who punished Ajdovska deklica by turning her into rock.

On the end of a nice December day we enjoyed in a beautiful work of the nature. To see this beauty you have to walk 15 min from Tičarjev dom (mountain lodge) in way of Poštanski dom.

Compared to the surrounding landscape, the face on the mountain is just a pure anecdote. It takes a few minutes to find it and when you do, you can move on. Nothing to special but adds a little extra to the magnificent Triglav National Park.
