Three heads

Triglav, Slovenia

At 2864 m, this is the highest mountain in Slovenia

"Triglav means 'three heads.' Early Slavs believed that a three-headed diety lived on the
mountain, ruling the sky, the earth and the underworld with his three heads. Today, the
mountain, with its three peaks, can be seen on the Slovenian national flag and seal."

Thanks to Anders for phooning (and for the photo idea).
