Pantz Forester's Gravity Cableway is installed in the hamlet of Soteska on the road between Bled and Bohinj, some 1.5 kilometres from the power station in Soteska. The cableway is the only one now left out of the original four cableways designed and constructed by Lambert von Pantz, technical director of the Carniolan Industrial Company (Kranjska industrijska družba). At the time of its construction it was a remarkable technical innovation for which von Pantz received a 10-year patent for the territory of the entire Austro-Hungarian Empire. The cableway operated without interruption from 1882 until 1964.
