Lakes of Slovenia
There are a number of lakes in Slovenia, but the two most popular are Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj. Lake Bled is much more developed, offering a ride range of water sports and other entertaining distractions along its banks.
The swimming and boating on both lakes is excellent, but if you want a quieter and more natural experience, head to Lake Bohinj. It’s the country’s largest lake, but it’s protected by the surrounding Triglav National Park which keeps the gaudy commercial side of things out.
Lake Bled (Slovene: Blejsko jezero; German: Bleder See, Veldeser See) is a lake in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia, where it adjoins the town of Bled. The area is a popular tourist destination.

It is located within the Bohinj Valley of the Julian Alps, in the northwestern Upper Carniola region, and part of Triglav National Park.
Lake Gradisce (Slovene: Gradisko jezero) is a lake near Lukovica in Slovenia.
Lake Kreda is a man-made lake in the Radovna Valley in northwestern Slovenia. The lake got its name from the chalk (Slovene: kreda) that was mined in the area until 1985. The digging also created a basin, which gradually filled with water and the lake appeared.
The mining ceased because it was unprofitable and due to conservation concerns (the area is within Triglav National Park) but the lake remained and is now occasionally used as a recreation site.
Lake Ptuj (Slovene: Ptujsko jezero) is an artificial lake on the river Drava to the south east of the town of Ptuj in eastern Slovenia. It is the largest artificial lake in Slovenia and was created in 1978 when a dam for the Formin hydroelectric power plant was built on the Drava.
It is still used as the reservoir for the power plant, but is also popular for rowing, sailing and fishing.
Lake Zovnek (Slovene: Zovnesko jezero) is a lake near Celje in Slovenia.
