Would you like to know where the name Bohinj comes from? The following legend speaks of its origin:
When God was bestowing the world to people, he gave each group of people a certain part of land. When he had given away all of the land, he noticed a few people still standing on the side. He had forgotten about them, because they did not tussle or speak up. He felt pity for them, for they were so patient and humble. He had no more land to give, so he gave them a piece of his own most beautiful world, and that is why Bohinj is now named as it is. Bohinj comes from God, because the citizens of Bohinj call God Boh (the Slovenian word for God is otherwise “Bog”).
