Cultural Heritage

The aim of the Wild Flower Festival is to promote and raise awareness of the unique cultural heritage in the Bohinj region of Slovenia. It is an opportunity to celebrate the beautiful displays of flowers in the alpine meadows in conjunction with the skills and knowledge of local people. So why not come along and learn how to make unique flower arrangements from the flowers gathered in the meadow? Or visit one of the oldest working Mills in the valley where they grind flowers? Under the expertise of local people you can learn about the traditional methods that have been used for centuries.

Floral Cuisine

Let your taste buds experience new flavours for the first time here in Bohinj.  Local businesses such as Gostilna DanicaGostilna Pri Hrvatu, and Restaurant Reste, all offer a special menu during the festival so you try foods flavoured by the mountain plants. Hotel Krystal, renowned for its chocolate shop, will be offering chocolate tasting as well. A speciality is their chocolate flavoured with the local Mohant cheese and hemp seeds! If that sounds a bit exotic you can always try their delicious strawberries and raspberries dipped in chocolate.

Springtime is one of the quieter times to visit Lake Bohinj and you will be rewarded with walks and hikes where you will see hardly another person. You can enjoy the meadows in full bloom, spot Orchids (did you know that there are 40 Orchids native to the Bohinj area alone?), Lilies, Dianthus, Arnica, Lunaria, Edelweiss and Gentian to name but a few.
