Bohinj is located in the heart of the Julian Alps. The most extensive and highest mountain range in Slovenia is also the most south-eastern part of the Alps.
Bohinj encompasses the valley of Nomenj, the Upper and Lower Bohinj Valleys, lake basin, the Pokljuka and Jelovica plateaus and a high mountain range.
The most recognisable and astonishing natural site is Lake Bohinj, the biggest lake in Slovenia.
The twenty-four villages in and above the valley hide the attractive riches of the past, the cheerfulness of the present and the mystery of the future.
Bohinj abounds in unique natural beauties and spectacular landscapes.
Over the centuries, ancestors have diligently preserved Bohinj’s biodiversity and traditions. Modern generations are proud to take up the baton. However, they are facing the challenges of modern times with bold plans, establishing foundations for responsible management of this precious space
