Slovenian lakes

Slovenia is rich of water, on the list it has 321 lakes. I had a chance to visit two most famous Bled and Bohnij, both located in beautiful mountain scenery. 

Lake Bohnij is largest permanent lake in Slovenia
Short brake from traveling next to Bohnij lake
Bohnij is spread in the valley below Triglav (highest peak of Slovenia)
Bohnij is 4.2 km long, 1 km wide and 45 meters deep. 
Sunset over Bohnij mountain

This location is one of the most picturesque in whole Slovenia

Contemplating the view of sunset
Closest area of the lake has interesting bridge and old church
Lake Bled is the most famous travel destination of Slovenia

Lake Bled came to existence when the Bohnij glacier moved away

It is 2.1 km long and 1.3 km wide

Lake is almost 30 meters deep

The beauty of the lake is stressed by the island on the west side of it. 

Island is called Blejski otok in local language. 

It has few buildings on it but the most important is a church dedicated to Assumption of Mary.

Current form of the church comes from the end of 17 century
These days it is very popular tourist destination

Lot of weddings are being held in this church

Slovenian mountains - part three

Part three of the tour around the Julian Alps in Slovenia. Enjoy !

One of the many, forgotten canyon named Mozsnica located in Log Pod Mangartom, little mountain village in northern Slovenia.

Church and the mountains of Triglav National Park above it, Log Pod Mangartom, Slovenia. 

Sunset is almost here. 

Camping in Triglav National Park, unforgettable time. 

Sky is the limit. 

Colorful and stunning sunset caught on the road near Bovec. 

Near Italian border there is a famous Brda region, just like Toscany, producing good quality wine. 

Pearl of Slovenia, must visit Skocjan caves. 

Looks like asteroid, its just the one of the rocks in Skocjan caves, flashed with the light from outside.
