The Town of Skofja Loka

Back to Around Lake Bohinj
Skofja Loka was a good base, both for watching the fell race, and for getting into the mountains. It is also a very picturesque town in its own right.
'Trg' is usually translated as 'square', but some are more long than wide, and have been adopted as roads (adding to the tourist's perils).
Built in 1751 as thanks for preventing fire and the plague
Mestni Trg is not used as a road (except by cyclists)
Some of the buildings are old, some are new, and some are old but refaced
I'm not sure how authentic the skylight windows are, however.
The castle is situated in the traditional position, at the top of a hill overlooking the town, with a long not climb leading up to it. Being a Monday, it was closed.
It was a hot day, so here is a photo of a band stand to complete the page.
