Bohinjsko Jezero

Fodor's Review

Lake Bohinj is quieter, wilder, and prettier sister of Bled and lies entirely within the Triglav National Park. The entire length of the north shore is wild and accessible only by foot. The lake, at an altitude of 1,715 feet, is surrounded on three sides by the steep walls of the Julian Alps. The altitude means the temperature of the water—even in August—rarely rises above a brisk but still swimmable 74°F. The small village of Ribčev Laz, on the eastern end of the lake functions as the de facto town center, where you'll find a grocery store, post office, currency exchange, an ATM, and the tourist-information center. On the western shore lies the remote village of Ukanc, anchored by the Hotel Zlatorog, a campsite, and a few small shops. Just to the north and east of Ribčev Laz are the tiny hamlets of Stara Fužina, Studor, and Srednja Vas.
