Slovenian writer Ivan Tavčar describes and glorifies mountain Blegoš in his famous work Autumn blossoms. Part from the book:
»Among Slovenian mountains Blegoš is not giant! And is not encased with magnificence, which encases our snow-whites and of what his neighbour Ratitovec has. It is encased only with humble beauty of humble Slovenian mountain pasture, which does not know ethernal snow, neither infertile scree slopes and neither wild precipices. Despite this in his own humble pays off hundredth the effort full path, which you had to walk to his grassy roof«
