Culture and people

Bohinj is shaped and ennobled by the people who live here. Over the centuries, our ancestors have diligently preserved the biodiversity and traditions of this area. Despite having an innovative spirit (locals were often put on the map of history; among other achievements, four brave Bohinjers were the first to climb Triglav), it was the famous Bohinj stubbornness that has tirelessly harmonised and intuitively intertwined the cultural landscape with the essence of nature. Modern generations are proudly picking up the baton and, with bold plans, more or less successfully navigating the cliffs of modern times.

Agriculture

The “field to table” approach is an important part of modern trends and responsible tourism. We are all increasingly aware of the importance of local self-sufficiency, regenerative agriculture, an organic approach to food production, quality soil and seeds…

At the same time, there has been a sharp decline in the number of farms and people involved in food production in one way or another. To ensure a significantly higher share of locally sourced food, we have launched activities and a coordinated business model based on the Strategy for the Development of Agriculture in Bohinj, which will reconnect agriculture, tourism and catering.

Biodiversity of Bohinj

Most of Bohinj lies within the Triglav National Park, where you can find around 7000 different animal species and around 1600 plant species. The area is known for its exceptional diversity of ecosystems and is fully included in Europe’s Natura 2000 network of Special Areas of Conservation.

At the Bohinj Tourist Board, we work together and participate in various projects that contribute to the conservation of biodiversity in our environment. At the same time, we are looking for ways to bring these key areas of responsible tourism closer to locals and visitors. One of the most interesting projects is certainly the International Wild Flower Festival.

A paradise for flower lovers and botanical experts

In Bohinj, the industrialist Zois supported the exploration and discovery of the Triglav and surrounding mountains. He has financed numerous expeditions to the mountains, including the four brave men who were the first to reach the summit of Triglav. He also supported Hacquet’s expeditions, attempts to conquer Triglav and scientific explorations of nature. The Zois Bellflower is named after Karl, Žiga’s brother, who loved the mountains and flora of Bohinj immensely.

You can see the botanical splendour of Bohinj for yourself in one of Bohinj’s four natural botanical gardens. You can collect more than 40 orchids on memory cards, or any of the many other flowers that can withstand harsh conditions all the way to the highest peaks.
