Join the Tatra photography team in Slovenia’s breathtaking Triglav national park. Lake Bled & Lake Bohinj will be the focus of our landscape photography weekend in the natural splendour of the lakes and mountains of Slovenia.
Lake Bled is surrounded by The Triglav National Park which covers the entire range of the Julian Alps and gained its name after the highest Slovenian mountain Mt Triglav 2864M. The most recognizable symbol of the lake is the 15th century Church of Assumption on Bled Island with its long and diverse history and lush greenery which will provide us with the chance to capture the iconic Bled image. Gracious swans, traditional Pletna boats and Bled castle illuminated at twilight make this area one of the most photogenic regions in Europe.
This picturesque valley of Bohinj is 20 km in length and only 25 minutes drive away from our base in Bled. Lake Bohinj is the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia with its bridge and the Church of St. John surrounded by 2000m peaks.
