There’s nothing better than finding refreshment in a lake, a river, or in the sea, which simply draw you in whenever you happen to look at the crystal-clear water. Officially, you can find 48 bathing areas in Slovenia, where the quality of the bathing water is measured regularly. Among these, there are 30 bathing areas and 18 natural bathing sites. While safety and additional facilities are offered at natural bathing sites, in most natural bathing areas you are free to bathe at your own risk. Some natural bathing sites measure the quality of the bathing water themselves. In most cases, the quality of water is excellent. Give in to temptation and jump in!
