  • This Lake is magic to share her beauty and her wild side. We have made the turn on snowshoes and were of wonder in enchantments. It is not very common, just nature!

  • We went on a roadtrip around Slovenia and stopped by the lake to feast our eyes on the magical view. Definitely worth a visit, it is peaceful and uninhabited unlike Bled lake. Don't forget your camera...  more »

  • 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.
