Photographer's Note

View from Vogel of Lake Bohinj

Lake Bohinj is the largest natural and permanent lake in Slovenia.
It formed by glacier action about 10,000 years ago. It is located
in the upper Bohinj valley. This lake is the cleanest Slovenian lake and its catchment basin is located within Triglav National Park.

Lake Bohinj is 4.2 km (2.6 mi) long and 1 km (0.62 mi) at its maximum width. It is a glacial lake dammed by a moraine. The largest of the streams that flow into the lake, the Savica , is fed from Crno jezero (Black Lake), the lowest-lying lake in the Triglav Lakes Valley. The outflow at the eastern end is the Jezernica creek which merges with the Mostnica to form the Sava Bohinjka, which in turn becomes the larger Sava River at the confluence with the Sava Dolinka. As found out already by Belsazar Hacquet in the 18th century, much more water leaves Lake Bohinj than enters it, which is explained with subterranean sources of water.
