Just a few kilometres away from Bled and through the narrow gorge of the Sava Bohinjka River this magnificent alpine valley will open up to you and enchant you with its authenticity. More than two thirds of the area of Bohinj lie in the Triglav National Park.

Lake Bohinj, the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia, surrounded by the imposing mountains of the Julian Alps, will be the first to mesmerise you. On one side you will be greeted by the view from the bridge and the Church of St. John the Baptist, and on the other side by the striking Savica Waterfall. You may take a cable car and ascend mount Vogel, which provides skiing pleasures in the winter and high-altitude hiking journeys in the summer. On the way to the Voja Valley you may admire nature's creativity in the Mostnica Gorges.

The most recognisable Bohinj cheeses with the Mohant at the forefront, which is without equal among cheeses and with a characteristic scent and flavour, valued even by the greatest gourmets, all mature on Bohinj's plateaus. Traditional ethnographic events, such as “Vasovanje” (Serenade), “Kmečka ohcet” (Country Wedding) and “Kravji bal” (Cow's Ball), which is a one-of-a-kind tribute to the alpine tradition, give an insight to the life that was in Bohinj.
