Many tourists miss it when visiting Bled

Bohinj lake is the lake that is overlooked by foreign tourists.They visit places like Bled,Postojna cave, Ljubljana,Piran.... but they don't know what jewel is waiting for them in Bohinj. Intact nature, smaragd green water, no polution, kind people, good food ..... really something that shouldn't be missed when visiting Slovenia.

    Excellent photos and useful tips, Tanja. I might visit Bohinj in July, when the temperatures in Zagreb reach 35 - sounds like a great refreshing escape.
