Average Not So Great Dinner @ Pod Skalco on 16Sep2018 Day 2 3pax Family Holiday in Slovenia 15-21Sep2018

panfried trout & grills at pod skalco

i guess this would count as the worst dinner we had in slovenia, at a pub pod skalco which means like “under the rock”, on 16.9.2018.

after walking around lake bohinj and taking photos at the golden horn sculpture, we came to a massive natural rock wall next to pod skalco. wonder if they use it for rock climbing?

panfried trout

i read that the panfried trout (top photo & above) was good. but it was not so fresh here, so maybe just passable not great dish. subsequent we had very good ones at bovec. write about that later.

mixed grill

the mixed grill di not come with beef or pork or like in croatia, lamb.

it was mostly sausage & cevapi, not too bad dish of grilled minced meat similar to kebab & commonly found in croatia & i guess here in slovenia, and a piece of chicken.

sausage set

i think the sausage was on offer like €8.90 or something so we took that as well.

too much sausages.

i guess food was the robust hearty type, competent enough, not great also not specially bad, just very average food.

Great 2-room Apartment @ Ribcev Laz Bohinj on 16-18Sep2018 3pax Family Holiday in Slovenia 15-21Sep2018

our 2 room apartment @ bohinj

after hiking mostnica waterfall, we arrived shortly about 4.30pm at our apartment at ribcev laz in bohinj on 16.9.2018. the lady host was waiting. 🙂

our room was on the top floor.

there was one bedroom & a living/dining/kitchen hall, and a flight of stairs leading to a second room at the attic. we were staying here 2 nights from 16-18.9.2018.

the apartment cost €149.40 for 2nights, a tiny fraction of the price of grand hotel toplice at bled.

it was a great location just a stone throw from lake bohinj and the maercator (supermart) and tourist information, but then bohinj is tiny. everywhere is a stone throw haha!

the apartment provided free bicycles. bohinj is flat & easy to ride around the lake. we didn’t have occasion to use the bikes.

they also have a outdoor bbq pit except it was more like a hotplate rather than a fire grill. we didn’t use it.

our 2 room apartment @ bohinj

breakfast time

the next day we made our own breakfast. nicer than eating out haha!

our 2 room apartment @ bohinj

apartment ideal for travelling in groups and families and usually a lot cheaper than hotels.

for our slovenia trip, all our accomodation except for hotel grand toplice on the first day were apartments.

Mostnica Waterfall A Nice Hike on 16Sep2018 3pax Family Holiday in Slovenia 15-21Sep2018

hiking mostnica waterfall

after the trip to beld island, returning by pletna boat, we drove to bohinj..

we decided to go first to mostnica gorge. but we didn’t read much about it, couldn’t quite find the gorge and ended up taking the trail to mostnica slap (waterfall) …a very nice hike it turned out…but seems that the mostnica gorge would be even better.

we drove through the town of stara fuzina and came to a lower carpark. we decided to take drive to the higher parts which was quite a long drive about 1/2hr.

we came finally to a rest stop serving food & drinks where there was a sign showing onward direction to voje valley & mostica waterfall. i asked directions here and a young lady working there said the mostnica gorge was on one side & the waterfall on the other.

hiking mostnica waterfall

we decided to hike the waterfall trail which took about 1 hr each direction.

it was a nice hike. just a bit hot though. we started at 2pm. sun directly overhead.

we reached the voje hut.

met some peopl coming out of the woods opposite the hut. they said there was a nice area to view the waterfall & pool at the lower parts, and we should turned right after crossing a wooden suspension bridge.
