Many visitors to Slovenia say they’ve never seen a more beautiful lake than Bled … that is, until they’ve seen Lake Bohinj, just 26km to the southwest. We’ll refrain from weighing in on Bled vs Bohinj debate other than to say we see their point. Admittedly, Bohinj lacks Bled’s glamour, but it’s less crowded and in many ways more authentic.
With its emerald-green lake, picture-postcard church on an islet, a medieval castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke as backdrops, Bled is Slovenia's most popular resort, drawing everyone from honeymooners lured by the over-the-top romantic setting to backpackers, who come for the hiking, biking, boating and canyonin.
Aqua Park Bohinj
This lively water park is open year-round and has 380 sq m of indoor and outdoor pools with slides, as well as saunas, steam rooms, and fitness and wellness centres. If you’re travelling with kids, it can be a lifesaver in winter or a rainy day treat in summer. It’s located in Bohinjska Bistrica, next to the Bohinj Park Hotel .
Tourist Information Centre Bohinjska Bistrica
This modern take on traditional farmhouse cooking is a must for local foodies. Overlook the incongruous location in the centre of Bohinska Bistrica, and enjoy local treats like ričet s klobaso (barley porridge served with sausage and beans).
In Bohinjska Bistrica next to the post office.
