With Slovenia becoming a more and more popular travel destination, I decided to take a visit myself. Now I’m going to share with you what I believe to be Slovenia’s best kept secret: Bohinj. Whilst Lake Bled is the more obvious destination of choice, Bohinj offers something more special. Bohinj, just a 30 minute bus journey from Bled, is arguably Bled’s less touristy and more beautiful twin. Bohinj boasts a beautiful lake with very few tourists and many small ‘beaches’ that you are able to relax on. If you prefer peace & quiet then Bohinj is complete perfection. I arrived at Bohinj at around 8am, mist still covered the lake which hid its vast size. It approximately 2 hours for me to stroll just halfway around the lake, but the walk was wonderful. As there were very few people, the atmosphere was incredibly serene. I saw the occasional cyclist, but otherwise I was alone with my thoughts. There were a few muddy tracks along the way where some building work or foresting was underway. I was in a simple pair of trainers and suffer from dodgy ankles, so walking boots would have been ideal and I would certainly recommend them.
