Top wedding venues in Bohinj: Best outdoor & indoor locations

If you’re looking for a tranquil setting for your wedding in Slovenia, where you and your partner can say I do surrounded by nature, a wedding in Bohinj might just be your dream location.

Get married in the Bohinj Valley, in the midst of the Julian Alps, with every type of outdoor wedding location at your disposal as well as beautiful indoor wedding venues.

Exchange your vows in the midst of the breathtaking Bohinj Forest, besides glorious Lake Bohinj, on the hillside, in a wildflower-filled meadow, on a boat in the middle of the Lake, or in a divine hotel wedding venue with phenomenal views across the valley – it’s all possible here.

But first, let me tell you about Bohinj.

Peaceful alpine idyll with plenty to see and do

Bohinj’s main center is Bohinjska Bistrica town, beyond Bohinjska, you’ll find traditional villages and hamlets so the entire region, including Bohinjska Bistrica, is really peaceful. The area is rich with beautiful waterways, with the clear waters of Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake, its crowning glory.

Lake Bohinj sits at the top of the town and you’ll find magnificent Savica Waterfall close by. Climb the 500 steps to 78m high Savica Waterfall which plunges down a deep gorge, finishing in a pretty emerald pool.

Other top Bohinj attractions include the awesome Hostnica Rapids, the Bohinj Railway, and the Mount Vogel Cable Car, taken from Mount Vogel for sublime views across the lake and the valley.

You’ll also find plenty of historical attractions in the area, such as Giant’s Castle, which was once a Roman fort, Ajdovski Alpine Dairy Farm, and the Bohinj Museum.
