We have visited some beautiful lakes over the years but this one surely had the best reflections, hence me posting Bohinj Lake for the Fun Friday...Lake Bohinj is 4.2 km long and 1 km at its maximum width It is a glacial lake dammed by a moraine.
Bohinj is one of the most beautiful places in the heart of the Julian Alps and in the Triglav National Park.
The natural beauty of high mountains, green forests, a rather large glacier lake, and the cultural and historical monuments, guarantee visitors a pleasant stay in this beautiful valley.
Lake Bohinj is the largest natural lake in Slovenia. The origin of lake is glacier / tectonic type. The glacier excavate bottom of lake and encircle itwith moraine on the east side. Main source of the lake is waterfall Savica that flow in at Ukanc and on the other side flow out as river Jezernica. After 100 meters the river Mostnica attach to Jezernica and both flow from here as river Sava Bohinjka. On the north border of lake we find underwater sources. The most known is Govic.
The lake is pretty cold; the average temperature is 8,5 degrees, but in july and august the temperature rise until 20 degrees. So in the summer the lake is wery suitably for bathing.Reflected in the still waters of the gorgeous lake are the imposing peaks of the Julian Alps which flank the peaceful village and conjure up some truly fantastic views. Bohinj itself is a scattering of small hamlets with hotels and houses dispersed along the water's densely wooded southern shores. A unique and rustic ambience emanates through the narrow roads to the tranquil foothills, making Bohinj the perfect setting to completely relax and recuperate.
