Obcina Bohinj Travel Guide: 209 reviews and 494 photos
As soon as I saw Bohinj, I knew I would like it here!
The town and the Lake is set in a valley, surrounded by the Lower Bohinj
Mountains, [2000metres high], and the Triglav mountain range with
Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain [2864metres high]
The Sava Bohinjka river runs through the town and enters the Lake here.
At over 4km long, Lake Bohinj (Bohinjsko jezero) is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia.
Its depth at the deepest, is 45 metres.
It is not developed like Bled [yet!], and I think this is the beauty of the area.
I think, it is more for people who enjoy the outdoors, the beauty of the area, those who love peace and quiet, but can still go to a Bar or Hotel if they wish.
There is a lot to do if you are the active type, like, walking ALL the way around the Lake, there are many trails that run throughout the valley and for the Mountains.
Tours include, Cycling, Horseback riding and a Steam Train journey.
This is the website if you are interested in the latter....
Winter, and I have seen a photo of the lake when it is completely frozen over!
The ski fields then take over from the Summer activities.
Have I made you want to come?
If so, and you have a car, from Bled, follow the signs to Bohinjska Bistrica, and after 5 km, you are at Lake Bohinj.
Buses run here regularly.
What a beautiful area, somewhere I could come for a weeks holiday!
Well, we have to leave, and now we are going to Skofja Loka so please come along for the ride!
