    We found a dock to jump into the lake and we spend an afternoon swimming. The lake is gorgeous. There are plenty of nature activities to do around the lake. The scenery is amazing.  more »

    Absolutely incredible setting with big wow factor. The water is so clear that you can see several meters and about 22 degrees in the summer. One of my favorite spots in Slovenia!
