  • Lake Bohinj is breathtaking. Much less touristy than Lake Bled and personally I found it a more with also a much nicer view. Book sure a trip to the top of the mountain by cable-car Vogel. Somewhat pricey, but the sight that you will get here is really whether to attack.

  • One of my favorite places in the world. Wonderful views, crystal clear water crawling with fish. Stunning!
  • Very nice lake, easy to reach by bus and didn't feel crowded. There is a nice tourist center that can provide all the needed information. The savica waterfall is nearby and really pretty!
  • Clear water and great views! You can take a ferry across the lake, walk along the shore or bike around it.
  • Park on grass for 10€/day instead in front of Kramar since parking fee there is 2,5€/hour Anyhow lake Bohinj is beautiful and good for swimming if it's not too cold :D There are other recreations as well
  • Truly spectacular. We drove around to near a camping park where there was a stream completely pure blue, (freezing cold!) we then drop to Slap Sovenij waterfall not too far away. Really beautiful.
