This is one of the most beautiful places on earth--the views of the lake, scenery and alps near the church as stunning. The alps dominate the scenery and on a clear, sunny, calm day the water looks like a piece of glass reflecting everything so perfectly. If you like nature this is the place to be.

What an incredible lake! The water is clear and the water refreshing and clean to swim. The hills and mountains that frame the lake are excellent. There are facilities to rent boards and kayaks too.

Peaceful lake. There is a road on one side only, so it is very peaceful, even like today, a sunny summer day! Perfect for swimming without having to worry too much about boats. Great views, activities etc...

Easier to park than at Lake Bled but still a bit difficult. Well worth a visit for a day even. Stunning blue / green waters, huge fish right in close to shore; boat trips; places to sunbathe; Should be top of 'must go' attractions.

Amazing lake. Unbelievable clean water with lot of fish swimming between your legs. Swimming in Bohinj lake is wonderful experience. Water smell on clean as drinking water. Better for walk then Bled. Much bigger then Bled. Cheaper than Bled.As I said. ..amazing. Worth of your money and time.

The area is lovely and unspoiled. Getting to the area was easy by road with a hire car from Ljubljana (coming from Bled). There were excellent walks near and around the lake and we did swin at the lake. Kids love it. Nearby do not miss Vogel Cable (stunning view from the top) and the waterfall.

Lake Bohini, only 25 min away from famous lake Bled is a beautiful, peaceful area for relax, sight seeing and hiking. It is still only moderately developed, with great info offices, very few restaurants and coffee shops and small viligaes. You would probably stay in a short term rental apartment in people homes. They are bery welcoming, places are simple,... More

I stayed for a week in May for the first week of the wildflower festival. The area was lovely and unspoilt with wildflower meadows and woodland with excellent ground floral within several hundred yards of the lake. Getting to the area was easy by road with a hire car from the airport and my hotel was very close to the... More

Beautiful lake set in the mountains... we had a fantastic time at Bohinj and certainly prefer the natural beauty of Bohinj over the bustling crowds of Bled. The water was warm and clear and was wonderful for swimming. You can hire a Canoe and go for a paddle... just a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend.
