Stream Glijun is the right tributary of the Soča River. The Karst spring of the Glijun at an altitude of 450 m is fed from the Kaninski podovi. Three hundred meters from the source flows the stream Glijun into the 12 m high Virje waterfall. The Virje waterfall (virtual excursion) is most waterborne in the spring months: March-June. In the summer, especially after dry winters, the water flow is very low.

ACCESS: From the center of Bovec 3 km to the west on the road to the settlement Plužna. In Plužna there is not a lot of space for parking the vehicle, therefore a footpath is recommended. From Plužna it is in the west in the length of 800 m narrow road towards the pool of Virje waterfall. Access is easy and convenient for a family trip. Time of walking in one direction: From Bovec to Plužna 30 min, from Plužna to the Virje waterfall 10 min.
