Postcards from Slovenia #36: The Sava Bohinjka River

The Sava Bohinjka river in Northern Slovenia flows from springs fed by the Triglav Lakes Valley down the Komarca Cliff as the majestic Slap Savica then on into Lake Bohinj. From here it emerges in the village of Ribcev Laz and continues to flow through the valley connecting Bohinj with Bled, skirting the latter lake to spill into the Sava river close to the town of Radovljica.

I have become enchanted by the crystal clear waters of the Sava Bohinjka since moving to this area, and last weekend I wrote an extended sonnet inspired by the river. Today I bring you a photo tour along the length of the river, showing some of its highlights, through changing landscapes and seasons:

Črno Jezero, or Black Lake – one of the sources of the Sava Bohinjka
