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.
The gorge expands over the length of 2 kilometres and shows the creative and alluring forces of nature.
Hayrack, known as kozolec, stog and toplar in Slovenia, is one of the most typical architectural structures in Bohinj.
Here, almost all species which are characteristic for mountain habitats can be found.
