Bohinj in bloom

Spring is most beautiful in Bohinj. Not because it is not beautiful elsewhere, but because it seems quite different and special in Bohinj. After a long winter, when the peaks are covered in snow and the white colour reflects on the lake surface, the forests are still freshly green, the trees, meadows, slopes and even the rocks are in bloom …

The richness of flowers and colours seems more intense than in other places. The shadows of the mountains and clouds constantly change the image of the blossomy landscape. The real explosion of colours happens in May and June when the annual Wild Flower Festival takes place in Bohinj. All of Bohinj blossoms in thousands of shades.

Read the story at the bottom of this page about how our headstrong and unpredictable Spring chooses its dresses.  


Festival features a very diverse programme. Traditional expert and visitor-oriented topics and lectures will be held every day. Guided botanical walks and themed excursions, workshops and other events are intended for all generations and admirers of flowers, nature, and herbs and for discovering new knowledge. Some festival events have been implemented in the past and we have also added new ones that are intended for children and those who want to experience nature early in the morning. Everyone can find something for themselves.

The pre-festival events start in the weekend before the official opening of the festival with a true treat for families: Zlatorog Fairy Trail Weekend.

Do not miss the cultural and musical events, concerts and performances that will be featured within the scope of the festival programme. This year, the villages of Bohinj will also be actively included in the festival programme, because they will feature festival events in their village centres, and various inns will offer flower menus. The number of visitors to the festival grows every year. In more than a decade, the festival has developed into an extensive event that inspires and expands its circle of fans and admirers.

Today, the festival connects the people of Bohinj with guests who know how to appreciate the efforts to preserve the natural heritage and the balance between people and fragile nature. Perhaps the magic of the festival is right in the fact that this is “our” festival. The people of Bohinj are integrated into the festival with our work, all invested time, efforts and hospitality. And we should not forget about the cuisine. The flora and herbal richness have paved the way to our inns and homes, therefore Bohinj is becoming even more distinguished by its exceptional traditional cuisine.


The International Wild Flower Festival is a time when the people of Bohinj can show the best of Bohinj to visitors when we can all enjoy the magnificent natural background of the colourful meadows and mighty mountains, and the pristine image of all the richness of the traditions and the original way of life. We can be really proud of ourselves and our unique festival.
