Bohinj lies at the heart of the Triglav National Park. Every season is a unique experience in Bohinj. The rushing of the waters in spring, the uneasy calm of nature and people in summer, the magic play of sunlight and colours in autumn, the snow-white peace of winter. This is a place of myths and legends (for example the legend of Zlatorog).

From the mountains, whose mighty bulk surrounds and protects the lake, Lake Bohinj is like a mirror reflecting eternity and strength. The origins of ironworking in Slovenia are to be found in Bohinj. The tradition survives to the present day, especially in the area around Prešeren's manor Ajdovski Gradec.

The first world war linked the Bohinj basin to the events on the Soča (Isonzo) Front in the Soča valley. Another important sight is the railway tunnel built in 1906 which still connects the Gorenjska and Primorska regions and enables access to the Julian Alps from the sea.

You have to get up early and set off from Bohinj when it is still dark in order to conquer the mountain peaks and dispel fatigue with the wonderful views they afford. Vogel, the Savica waterfall, the museum of Alpine dairy farming, the Devil's Bridge, Studor, the Triglav lakes and the Sava river: plenty to fill your days until the silence wishes you goodnight.
