Driving the international Pavlič Pass

Pavlič Pass (Paulitschsattel-Pavličevo Sedlo) is an international mountain pass at an elevation of 1.349m (4,425ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Slovenia and Austria. 

The road to the summit is totally paved and pretty narrow in parts. It’s called Seeberg highway (B 82) in Austria and 428 in Slovenia. The pass links the Slovenian region of Savinja Statistical Region with the Austrian state of Carinthia.

The pass is 19.3km (11.99 miles) long, running east-west from Solčava (in Slovenia) to Bad Vellach (in Austria). The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 15.7% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Sometimes you drive through thick forest, other time you'll cut the villages and meadows. Fit cyclists and motorbikers love this route in nice weather.
