If you like to explore churches, the area around the lake abounds in churches of many different architectural styles and most are dedicated to saints: St. Andrew, St. Catherine, St. Martin, St Nicholas, St. Margaret, St.Jacob, St. Stephan, to name but a few.
There are swimming beaches and thermal springs scattered around the lake.
An interesting hike nearby takes you through the one and a half kilometer Vintgar Gorge with waterfalls, rapids and pools on the Radovna River. You can follow a well-worn path carved by the river between the high stone walls, traverse the river on sturdy wooden bridges, and stop to take a photo or soak up the view in the many galleries along the way. Your ultimate destination would be the Sum river waterfall, 13 metres or 42 feet high. The trail is nearby the entrance to the Triglav National Park.
