About 5300 people live in this municipality, which are divided into 24 villages. The biggest of these settlements is “Bohinjska Bistrica”. Although they all speak the same language, they have a lot of different dialects depending upon the settlement. Upper Carniolan dialect is the most famous one of those.
What is the weather scenario in Bohinj
This place has a harsh Alpine Climate. It is cold most of the year, with snow at its thickest around February. Precipitation increases significantly during the Autumn season and it may even get sunny during the end of winters (how ironic).
Given its geographical landscape, there are a lot of beautiful places in Bohinj for tourists to visit. If you want to explore this place at its fullest, you may have to book a private charter, since a day or 2 in this place is simply not enough to explore it.

This is the main tourist attraction in Bohinj. Once you get on the boat and traverse through the lake, you just cannot help but think you are not on earth anymore. The view from the lake is simply phenomenal: you can see lush green mountains at a distance, and the colorful boats floating on the water just add on to the beauty. All this makes it a pretty good picnic spot too.
This mountain has a special place in the heart of every Slovenian, especially those living in Bohinj. It is the highest peak in the country and a source of pride for people living there. Those of you who are going luxury cruising there must visit this place because if you miss out on it, it is almost like you are missing out at Bohinj entirely.
This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the region. This waterfall makes the shape of an “A”. Though one of the sides is about 78 meters tall, and the other just about 25, so it would make for a very weird “A”. Nevertheless, even a 25 meters tall waterfall is more than enough to amaze people, yet here are two.
While we are discussing lakes, mountains, and waterfalls, we should not forget about another amazing geographical spot in Bohinj, the Canyons. This gorge is right next to the lake of Bohinj and is about 2 km long. Exploring it with a boat would be a really fun activity to partake in.
The Valley of Voje
The valley is a beautiful, isolated, and peaceful village in Bohinj, near the Mostnica Waterfall. In fact, you can hear the sound of the water falling from a distance.
This valley has a small road, and there are beautiful green pastures as far as the eye can go. When all is said and done, you can see huge mountains at the back. This would be a sight never to forget. You can also take some pretty dope pictures here.
