The parish church, dedicated to St Nicholas, was built in the 17Th century and renovated in the 19Th, acquiring its actual Neo Renaissance and Neo Romantic look. It has some nice paintings and the tomb of 40 workers killed during the construction of the railway tunnel.
Bohinjska Bistrica is the biggest population near Bohinj lake, and, without being the most interesting, it may be the one offering the largest resources. A few kilometers far from the lake, it uses it as the top attraction. It´s a little bit far to walk there (remember, you must walk around the lake to enjoy it) but you may pick a bus in one of the flourished bus stops that enchanted Fernanda
I arrived in Bohinjska Bistrica after the visit to the lake and it s surroundings and... didn't like. That's the risk of seeing several similar things -there is no love as the first one. This is the larger city in the area, it is not ugly, but after seeing Srednja Vas it... didn't add much. However the nearby villages are part of the wide Bohinj area, and an additional reason to visit it.

One thing that we appreciated in the rural area near Bohinj lake were the many constructions used to store and to dry wood. It's a vertical drying rack, with a permanent structure also in wood, and following a typical pattern, locally called kozolec.
It may be a little morbid the visit to a cemetery without any remarkable piece of art or the burial of someone famous. Maybe it is! But approaching the church, it is impossible to notice how intricate with it is the cemetery, and how fresh it looks, revealing that it is something that people visit often and carefully maintain
