How did Bohinj get its name? A legend.
Once upon a time when God was dividing the world among people, and having divided almost all of it, he noticed a group of people standing by the side and not struggling to get to the front. He took pity of them, seeing how patient and modest they were. Therefore he gave them the most beautiful part of his own world. This is now called Bohinj – after God, who is called “boh” by the Bohinj people.


The Bohinj Valley is a favorite starting point for hiking in the southern part of the Triglav range.e.
