The Bohinj basin is a magical area of Slovenia with old alpine houses, a very clear lake, absolutely perfect hiking. There are many legends associated with Bohinj. The Ottomans thought is was the end of the world. There is another legend that the devil built a bridge here in exchange for the soul of the first to cross it. The locals sent a dog across, enraging the devil.
My favorite, and probably the most fitting explanation for Bohinj is this:
"God was giving land to people and, as he finished, he realized that he had forgotten about a small group of people, who were silent and did not insist like the others. Because of their modesty and patience, he felt pity for them. That is why he decided to give them the most beautiful land of all, which he had set aside for himself. It is called Bohinj."
