Visiting Ribcev Laz – Lake

This is a true natural wonder, with the clear waters squeezed between high mountains.

Photo lovers will have all the opportunities, no matter the hour of the day, lighting conditions or angle.

​The site is not hardly explored, and nature is respected everywhere.

​St John Baptist church

Visiting Ribcev Laz – Church

A very old church (at least from the 15th century) stands by the lake.

It is open to the public ans shows some frescoes, that were being restored when I visited it.

​It seems that are several layers with the frescoes, so, it will be interesting to find out how will they deal with it in the final works.

​Bridge

Visiting Ribcev Laz – Bridge

One of the preferred sightseeing points of lake Bohinj is the bridge of Ribcev Laz.

​In a landscape dominated by nature, this artificial element fits well, with its discreet and classical construction in stone.

​Four Hikers

The centre of Ribcev laz is dominated by a small hilly garden with a statue on top.

it is the celebration of three locals that,led by an Austrian, were the first to climb the high peak of Triglav mountain in 1778.

Ribcev Laz

Not far from Ribcev Laz, bordering the lake there’s a strange rock vertically cut, that shelters a bar and picnic area.

​With a small parking, it is used to small events, sometimes with live music.

​Holy Spirit church

Ribcev Laz

Two kilometers far from Ribcev Laz there’s a church that stands isolated by the lake.

It was open, empty, and with a nice and rich decoration, including a large fresco in the outside.

Back home I read that there’s a house (I didn’t notice) up the path, where the key is kept when the church is closed​

​Srednja Vas

Ribcev Laz

Now, follow me:

Take the road to Stara Fuzina, and keep on uphill for more 2 Km. You will not repent.

The tiny village of Srednja Vas is… delicious.

Now it’s up to you, to return, or to continue to Cesnika and Bohinjska Bistrica along a nice landscape.

​We enjoyed it!
