Bohinj is around 26 kilometres from Bled. Located inside Triglav National Park, this alpine valley is also part of the Julian Alps. Formed around the glacial Lake Bohinj, the area is less developed but no less beautiful than nearby Bled.
Triglav is Slovenia’s highest peak and it is visible from Lake Bohinj. While visiting the area it’s possible to follow trails and climb the mountain. Various cultural and historical places of interest can also be seen here.
Around 5,000 people live in Bohinj, which is spread out over 120 square miles in total. The area is divided into two main sections, covering the upper and lower parts of the Bohinj Valley. Overall, there are 24 different villages in the Bohinj area. Bohinjska Bistrica is the Bohinj valley’s largest village, with a population of almost 2,000 people.
Archaeological finds from across the valley indicate that people have settled in and around this area since the Bronze Age.
