This lake is so beautiful, and the view from the top is even more amazing. We had a great time swimming in this lake. Water is so fresh and nice.

We travelled to Lake Bohinj and the Falls by taxi and the driver took us into the little villages in the hills where buses and coaches do not go. The villages were interesting and the views of Lake Bled from these heights were wonderful. We even travelled along farm tracks across fields. We went to the far end of the... More

Nestled amidst the Julian Alps, the largest lake in Slovenia is sweetly serene even in the peak of summer. A few paragliders that take off from the upper reaches of the Triglav National Park and drift down into a large and lovely meadow along the lake. A small, friendly cafe serves local flavors and offers a toilet. Barring these and... More

The lake and nature around are so beautiful, it is not so touristic like Bled, much more beautiful and less visitors.

Nice lake with lots of recreational opportunities. City on its shore has plenty of restaurants and shops. Nearby small towns retain a highland, alpine culture with small roads, small farms and hay racks.

We had mixed weather but there is so much to do that did not spoil our holiday. The lake and surrounding area is stunningly beautiful, very peaceful and not a bit of litter. Recommend over Lake Bled which is very commercialized.

Bohinj has an even better setting than Bled with it being nestled in the mountains. We had a fantastic day at the lake and going up the Julian Alps. There are several secluded beaches along the lake so drive or walk along until you find one and then enjoy a few hours of swimming in this beautiful setting. One of... More

We visited after seeing Lake Bled, Bohinji is longer and deeper than Bled and a lot less crowded. We went up the Vogel cable car for amazing views of the crystal clear lake and the mountains surrounding it. We spent some time walking around, so peaceful, the water is so clear you can see the fish.

Comparisons are drawn between lakes Bled and Bohinj, and as they are only half an hours drive apart it is easy to compare them. Bohinj is what Bled used to be before tourism came to town. Both are stunningly beautiful clear lakes with mountains all round. Bled is smaller and more easily circumnavigated, and has the beautiful island church as... More
