"Stunning scenery and blissful peace" Obcina Bohinj by zadunajska8

Obcina Bohinj Travel Guide: 209 reviews and 494 photos

The Beautiful Lake

Lake Bohinj is clearly the main attraction in the area and rightly so. It has a powerful but peaceful presence that you feel on an almost instinctive level from the moment you first set eyes upon it. I found I could spend long periods of time standing on the stone bridge in Ribcev Laz just staring accross the lake at the mountains which surround it.

Great Walking around the Lake

There are some great opportunities for gentle(ish) walking around the lake. The Southern Shore has the only road from Ribcev Laz to Ukanc which makes it more accessible but slightly less appealing in my opinion. The Northern Shore is more remote, a little more challenging and a lot more rewarding.

The Upper Valley

There are some lovely walks to be had in the Upper Valley to the North East of the lake amongst the villages of Stara Fuzina, Studor and Strednja Vas. The presence of Slovenia's unique 'double hayracks' gives a very rustic feel to a day out here. There are also some mildly interesting small museums in the villages and some pleasant local cafes/taverns to pause for a while.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Amazing Beauty
  • Cons:None at all
  • In a nutshell:The photos can't convey the power of the scenery and it's beauty.

    Lovely photos and useful tips, we too were there in the summer (early summer) and we were practically the only people there!

    This area of Slovenia looks stunning, Troy. You've taken some really good photos here, especially of the waterfall.

    Troy, fabulous little page with outstanding photos of Lake Bohinj. Your hotel really seems to be a good find. I once visited the area on a daytrip from Ljubljana, but diue to bad weather didn't explore too much of the region.

    Interesting and informative reviews on this beautiful area. I like their idea of having a Museum of Alpine Dairy Farming.
