Nature’s Mirrors

Slovenia has an exceptional abundance of waters. Everywhere you go, you will find water. The landscape is dotted with numerous lakes, both natural and man-made. They offer popular sanctuaries for both those looking to relax and have some “me time”, and those looking for active holidays by and on the water. What appeals most to you, the tranquility of the water’s surface or the idea of lively water activities? Choose your own way of experiencing the most picturesque lakes in Slovenia

LAKE BLED

The famous island in the lake. Fairy-tale beauty, surrounded by green hills. Take the traditional pletna boat to the island in the lake, where a magnificent Gothic church is located. Make sure that you ring its bell if you want your hidden wishes to come true. Take a walk along the lake and marvel at the nearby mountains and the lake itself, and at the end of your walk treat yourself to the original Bled Cream Cake.

LAKE BOHINJ

Lake Bohinj is the ideal choice for lovers of nature, as you can experience the many joys of hiking in the Alps and still find refreshment in the largest natural lake in Slovenia. From here, a wonderful trail takes you to the enchanting Savica Waterfall and to the nearby hills, where you can take in the beauties and delights of the Alps.

LAKE CERKNICA

The lake that disappears and reappears. This special natural wonder is located in the middle of a large karst field. Lake Cerknica is one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe. Enjoy some rowing, fishing, biking, walking, and watching more than 270 different species of birds. The changing shape and size of the lake provides you with a different, unique experience every time.

TRIGLAV LAKES

Triglav Lakes, also known as the Valley of the Seven Lakes, is a wonderful hiking destination in the mountains. The valley has seven permanent and a few intermittent lakes, so the view of the lakes slightly changes every time. You will be impressed by their natural colourfulness, also evident from their names – the Green, Brown, and Black Lake.

WILD LAKE

One of the pearls of Slovenian natural heritage can be found near the town of Idrija. The mysterious karst Wild Lake is a true natural monument and the first Slovenian museum in nature. The usually calm, emerald green surface of the lake changes into a true wild water treasure when it rains.

LAKE ZELENCI

Walk along a special wooden footpath to the lake and its marshy surroundings. You are in for an unforgettable green experience. In this natural reserve, many interesting plant species can be found, including the carnivorous sundew, and the animals mostly include amphibians and nesting birds

THE LOVRENC LAKES

One of the most eye-catching creations of nature in the Pohorje area is the Lovrenc lakes, which are like windows in the broad peat bog. While walking along the gentle meadows and the mossy wetlands you can marvel at the peat bog pools and beds of rare plants, and enjoy the amazing views. The best views are to be had from the wooden tower that stands next to the highest-sitting pool.

KRN LAKE

In the heart of the Krn highlands, where the battles of the Soča Front once raged, lies the peaceful Krn Lake. It is Slovenia’s largest high mountain lake, which reflects the mighty nearby peaks with two-thousand metre Krn at the fore. Although you can still find the vestiges of war here, the lake offers a true escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.

PLANŠAR LAKE

Planšar Lake in Jezersko could also be called the lake of love, as it is shaped like a heart. It endures as a reminder of the former glacial lake, from which Jezersko (which translates roughly as “the lake place”) takes its name. Let yourself dream by the lakeside, surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

PIVKA INTERMITTENT LAKES

Discover the playfulness of nature on the Karst surface and visit the Pivka intermittent lakes. Along a length of 15 kilometres as the crow flies lie 17 different-sized lakes that form a unique feature in Europe. The largest is Lake Palčje. The lakes are also characterised by their exceptional biodiversity. The area of the lakes is protected as a nature park. You will gain the greatest insights into the origin of the lakes and the life around them at the Ecomuseum in Pivka
