About Bohinj Summer Music Festival 2018

“It is our great pleasure to recommend you to spend a few summer evenings in Bohinj by visiting our concerts during the 23rd Summer Music Festival in Bohinj. In the wonderful ambience of St Martin’s Church in Srednja vas and the Culture Hall in Bohinjska Bistrica, we want to create an atmosphere that will make the summer of 2018 even more colourful and give you wonderful memories of Bohinj. We have put all efforts in creating an attractive and interesting programme with top quality local and foreign musical artists. We hope that all music lovers will be able to enjoy this great mosaic of music that we have produced for all kinds of musical tastes. We invite you to view the programme and make your choice. You are warmly invited!”

Roman Leskovic, Art Director
Klemen Langus, Director, Turizem Bohinj

The Summer Music Festival in Bohinj is in complete harmony with the environment, where it enthuses visitors every summer. The amazing acoustic ambience of St Martin’s Church in Srednja vas and the exceptional natural and cultural landscape of Bohinj feature top Slovenian and foreign music artists who overwhelm visitors with their voices and instruments. And this seems completely normal. For the 23rd consecutive year, the festival will tingle all the attendees’ senses. Classical music performed by premium musicians is perhaps not what a random visitor would expect in this hidden valley of Bohinj. However, every year the festival proves that major concerts and grand musicians do not only perform on big concert stages in European capitals but are also hosted in intimate environments, such as the beautiful Bohinj. Every concert is an exceptional experience for classical music buffs, and it will also get under the skin of those who are not that interested in this type of music.

Every year, the programme features diverse pieces for all kinds of musical tastes. We believe that every visitor will be overwhelmed. Many things have been said and written about the proven positive effects of classical music on our body and soil, therefore, we invite you to experience this by yourselves. Live concerts in Bohinj.

2018 PROGRAMME

This year’s festival will commemorate many mountaineers who have died in the walls of Triglav in 240 years since the first climb to its summit, with the introductory concert of Mozart’s Requiem by the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir on 23 June in St Nicholas’ Church in Bohinjska Bistrica.

Floral cuisine

In spring, when the first primroses blossom and meadows and forests are in full bloom, there are more than 1000 different types of flowers that turn Bohinj into a large natural botanical garden. A garden that grows and changes every day. A garden that we do not water, dig through, nor weed … we just let it grow its own way. This garden is the core of the International Wild Flower Festival. Guided botanical excursions take us to areas of rocks, meadows and forests, where we can see different flowers.

FESTIVAL PROGRAMME IS WICKERED FROM FLOWERS

The International Wild Flower Festival programme is very diverse and offers various events, workshops, cultural events, lectures, exhibitions and other activities; however, the heart of the festival are short and long walks, where we can really feel the richness of flora in Bohinj. Although there are many reasons to visit the festival, one of the main ones is the diversity of flowers that still grow in the Alps.

There are 84 different types of wild orchids growing in Slovenia, and 42 of them grow in the area of the Julian Alps, i.e. also in Bohinj. Our flora is therefore extensive.

GUIDED BOTANICAL TOURS AND CULINARY EVENINGS

Various day excursions guided by experts will take all wildflower admirers to the hidden corners of autochthonous wildflowers. While the excursions might be intended only for visitors, we believe that also we, the local people, who are used to the flowery background, are amazed every time we see this beauty of nature and admire it.

During the festival, visitors can choose among short, long and difficult hikes to the hidden habitats of flowers which have disappeared from meadows elsewhere in the world. The guided hikes end with lunch or dinner at local inns offering flower menus. Let your step be light and careful because our trails are all overgrown with flowers.

Bohinj in bloom

Spring is most beautiful in Bohinj. Not because it is not beautiful elsewhere, but because it seems quite different and special in Bohinj. After a long winter, when the peaks are covered in snow and the white colour reflects on the lake surface, the forests are still freshly green, the trees, meadows, slopes and even the rocks are in bloom …

The richness of flowers and colours seems more intense than in other places. The shadows of the mountains and clouds constantly change the image of the blossomy landscape. The real explosion of colours happens in May and June when the annual Wild Flower Festival takes place in Bohinj. All of Bohinj blossoms in thousands of shades.

RICH AND VERY INTERESTING PROGRAMME

This year’s festival will feature a very diverse programme. Traditional expert and visitor-oriented topics and lectures will be held every day. Guided botanical walks and themed excursions, workshops and other events are intended for all generations and admirers of flowers, nature, and herbs and for discovering new knowledge. Some festival events have been implemented in the past and we have also added new ones that are intended for children and those who want to experience nature early in the morning. Everyone can find something for themselves.

The pre-festival events start on Friday, 18 May, in the “Dobro jutro Slovenija” show that will be broadcast from Bohinj. At this live broadcast, we will present Bohinj and invite viewers to visit the Wild Flower Festival. Saturday and Sunday (19 and 20 May) will be intended for the youngest, i.e. at the Zlatorog’s Fairyland in Ukanc.

OFFICIAL OPENING

The official opening of the festival will take place on 26 May, when the whole day will be filled with various events and a market featuring products made in Bohinj and also from across Slovenia, where the emphasis will be on flowers, herbs, honey products and cuisine. The first festival market will take place in Bohinjska Bistrica, at the Jože Ažman Culture Hall. Mrs Marija Merljak will guide us through the market and featured events. The festive opening ceremony of the 12th Wild Flower Festival will take place in the evening at the Jože Ažman Culture Hall, and visitors will be able to enjoy the culinary delights after the official opening too. The second festival market will take place on 9 June at the Pod Skalco event place in Ribčev Laz, and it will be mentored by the distinguished Slovenian nutritionist, Mrs Marija Merljak.

Do not miss the cultural and musical events, concerts and performances that will be featured within the scope of the festival programme. This year, the villages of Bohinj will also be actively included in the festival programme, because they will feature festival events in their village centres, and various inns will offer flower menus.

The number of visitors to the festival grows every year. In more than a decade, the festival has developed into an extensive event that inspires and expands its circle of fans and admirers.

PEOPLE AND NATURE

Today, the festival connects the people of Bohinj with guests who know how to appreciate the efforts to preserve natural heritage and the balance between people and fragile nature. Perhaps the magic of the festival is right in the fact that this is “our” festival. The people of Bohinj are integrated into the festival with our work, all invested time, efforts and hospitality. And we should not forget about the cuisine. The flora and herbal richness have paved the way to our inns and homes, therefore Bohinj is becoming even more distinguished by its exceptional traditional cuisine.

OUR BOHINJ IS A GRAND BOTANICAL GARDEN

The International Wild Flower Festival is a time when the people of Bohinj can show the best of Bohinj to visitors, when we can all enjoy the magnificent natural background of the colourful meadows and mighty mountains, and the pristine image of all the richness of the traditions and the original way of life. We can be really proud of ourselves and our unique festival.

New marked hiking trails in Bohinj

This year hiking trails in Bohinj will be marked with new guide boards, which faithfully follow Bohinj’s iron and wood traditions. More detailed information and technical characteristics of the route will be presented in the new hiking map. Part of the new urban equipment that honours the above mentioned traditions can already be seen on the educational trail through the remains of the iron making plant in Stara Fužina (near Mostnica Gorge and Devil’s Bridge).

RIBNICA WATERFALLS AND AJDOVSKI GRADEC

New orientation boards will lead you to new corners along the mentioned hiking trails. Along the archaeological trail from Bohinjska Bistrica to Ajdovski gradec, you will explore finds from the Iron Age and reminiscent of the poem Baptism at the Savica, written by the greatest Slovenian poet, France Prešeren. The trail leading from Srednja vas to the waterfalls of Ribnica will charm you with natural beauty spots created by water and stone.
