Tiny alpine hut is a cozy refuge in the harsh yet spectacular Slovenian Alps

Engineer and mountaineer Karlo Korenini designed the original 1936 bivouac shelter, which impressively withstood the elements for 80 years despite its simple construction. The new upgraded and improved Bivouac II is a replica of the old hut, which was airlifted and donated to the Slovenian Mountaineering Museum, and is located in the same wild area in the Julian Alps. The new bell-shaped hut was airlifted into place and was built to be as easy to maintain as possible and is capable of withstanding hurricane force winds and heavy snow loads.
