The Vintgar Gorge or Bled Gorge (Slovene: Blejski Vintgar) is a 1.6 km gorge located near the settlement of Zgornje Gorje, four kilometers northwest of Bled, Slovenia. Carved by the Radovna River, the sheer canyon walls are 50 to 100 m high, with a total slope measuring about 250 m. The stream has created many erosive features such as pools and rapids, and terminates in the picturesque 13 m Šum Falls (literally, 'noisy falls'). - in: wikipedia

I didn't find much information about Kras. Actually, Kras is a region and the card shows images of Komen, a village in that region.
