Ribčev Laz Vacation Packages
Ribčev Laz is a charming lakeside town in Triglav National Park. The pretty settlement on the shores of Lake Bohinj is a central spot for vacationers and has many hotels and holiday homes overlooking the water. Walk along the nature trails that lead into the forests and visit the town’s two churches.
Cross the elegant double-arched bridge to reach St. John the Baptist’s Church, which is recognizable by its tall Baroque bell tower. Admire the Gothic façade of this structure that dates back to the 1400s. Frescoes depicting the life of the church’s saint decorate the interior.
Nearby is the Holy Spirit Church, which is from the late 16th century. See the fresco of St. Christopher on the exterior northern wall. Gaze up at the roof with its hump that resembles a camel’s back.
Get a sense of the region’s natural beauty with a trek through the forest. Relax with a picnic as you listen to wildlife calls and swaying trees.
Among the town’s main attractions is Lake Bohinj. Admire stunning views of mountains reflected in the placid water. Swim or fish in the lake and rent a boat from the town. Marvel at Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia. Reach the mountain via a chairlift from Vogel. Go skiing on the snowy slopes in winter.
Drive or walk around the scenic parts of the Triglav National Park. In the heights of the Julian Alps, the settlement offers relief from the relentless heat of other parts of Slovenia in summer. In winter, snow covers parts of the area.
The town is near the southeastern corner of Lake Bohinj in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. Arrive at Jože Pučnik Ljubljana Airport and drive northwest for 40 miles (60 kilometers) to get to the settlement, which is near the borders with Italy and Austria.
A vacation in Ribčev Laz will feature swimming days, nature trails and picnics in the shade of spectacular mountains.
