Bohinj Cheese

  Stara Fužina 53     29 May 2019
The Bohinj region has a long and rich history in the dairy industry stretching back to the 13th century. The ring of cow bells across the pastures can still be heard today as local alpine herdsmen continue this tradition, producing award-winning dairy products with Bohinj cheese being some of the best in the country. Ask at local restauratns about the delicious fresh cottage cheese ‘skuta’, as well as the EU recognised local specialty Mohant - an interesting semi-soft cow’s milk cheese with a strong, sharp flavour. Local dairies also produce an excellent Emmentaler style-cheese known in Slovenia as simply Bohinjski Sir. Bohinj cheeses can be found in shops throughout Slovenia, but if you’re in the regions it’s worth dropping by the dairy for the freshest products. Bohinj’s dairy culute is celebrated annually at the traditional Cow’s Ball festival (the third Sunday in September), where herdsmen parade their dairy queens through town - the festival is a cultural experience not to be missed Bohinj cheeses can be found in shops throughout Slovenia, but if you're in the regions it's worth dropping by the dairy for the freshest products.
