Bohinj (German: Wochein) is a municipality in the Upper Carniola region of northwestern Slovenia, covering the 20 km long and 5 km wide Bohinj basin of the Sava Bohinjka river within the Julian Alps, characterized by the periglacial Lake Bohinj (Slovene: Bohinjsko jezero). The municipality's administrative centre is located at Bohinjska Bistrica.
The valley consists of four regions; the Spodnja Dolina (Lower Valley), Zgornja Dolina (Upper Valley), Ukanška kotlina (Ukanc Basin), and Nomenjska kotlina (Nomenj Basin). It is bounded by Komarèa on one end and Soteska, which is in fact a narrow canyon, at the other.
However, the municipality of Bohinj covers a much larger area than only the Bohinj Valley. The Lower Bohinj Mountain Range represents its southern border. The Sava river has carved a canyon between the Jelovica and Pokljuka plateaus in the east. To the north, Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain is also a part of the municipality.
Sava Bohinjka (which merges with Sava Dolinka into the Sava) begins when two rivers, the Jezernica and the Mostnica merge. The Mostnica comes from a valley called Voje, whereas the Jezrnica is a very short river that flows from Lake Bohinj. Many smaller streams flow into the lake. The largest of them, the Savica, emerges in Komarèa as a large waterfall. The Savica Falls (Slap Savica) get most of the water from Èrno Jezero (Black Lake) which is the largest in the Triglav Lakes Valley.
Bohinj began opening up for tourists years ago, with natural attractions being the biggest draw.
Bohinj has become a starting point for tourists for day trips, for walks on the trails that run throughout the valley, and for mountaineering and climbing tours. It is also associated with the nearby Bohinj Railway, which includes the Bohinj Tunnel.
In winter the valley becomes a winter sports centre for skiers, snowboarders, ice climbers, as well as ice skaters on Lake Bohinj. During the summer, Lake Bohinj is frequented by swimmers, and with the Sava Bohinjka River, kayakers and fishermen as well. Biking, trekking and climbing are also typical tourist activities in the area.
The distance from Ljubljana city/airport to Beld and Bohinj resorts is around 70 km and the journey takes around 1h and 15min.
The average cruise speed 90 km/h.
