Ahh, don’t even know where to start! Have to admit, didn’t do much research and had a very little idea what to expect. I was in for a surprise – a beautiful surprise.
Decided to stay in Ribčev Laz, the closest village to Bohinj lake. If I remember correctly, about an hour drive on the bus or a bit less from Bled. As mentioned above – didn’t do much research and it turned out to be off season and Ribčev Laz was pretty much empty and almost all restaurants were closed. Luckily, there was a small grocery shop and a tourist information centre open. To be honest, it was enough and enjoyed that peacefulness around.
Spent hours next to the lake, walking from one side to another and I was very lucky to see and feel a bit of snow! It was just a tiny, tiny layer of snow and it was enough to put a smile on my face! Bohinj lake and a bit of snow made me smile like a way too happy idiot during my stay in Ribčev Laz! Pretty much, I was on my own the whole time and no one could see my over excitement, so I’m safe – there is no one who thinks there is something wrong with me…
During the summer months Bohinj lake can get very busy as it’s allowed to swim. But what a beautiful swimming it would be! Absolutely picturesque!
