Lake Bohinj, Slovenia
Slovenia is a country that skips the tourist radar, but those who do make it usually head straight to Lake Bled. But there’s another, lesser-known lake just past Lake Bled, and that’s Lake Bohinj. It’s perfect if you’re seeking peacefulness and tranquility since not many tourists make it there. The lake is reachable by bus, and there are several guesthouses near the lake, as well as tons of hiking trails into the mountains. It’s considered an outdoor playground and is a breathtaking off-the-beaten-path location in Europe (via Earth Trekkers).
