Hanssen Ski Jump: In 1927 the Yugoslav ski association invited the world renowned builder of ski jumps, the Norwegian engineer Thunold Thorleif Hanssen, to train the Yugoslav ski jumping teams. In 1931, the first international ski jumping competition was held on the Hanssen ski jump. Initially, it was a 50-metre jump and was extended later on by 10 metres.
The village of Studor is an exceptionally thoughtfully formed village that stretches on an infertile slope, because in the past, people used every inch of fertile land for produce. The village also has a small dairy farm where Bohinj cheese loaves are still made in the traditional way. Horse admirers can also enjoy riding at Mrcina Ranch.
The preserved Oplen House is a typical example of an "extended home", where the residential and work parts of the house are joined in the same building. It is a brick building, combined with wood. The residential part comprises a hall with a kitchen, the house and small room, an attic and cellar. It is one of the rare houses where the open fireplace kitchen can still be used.

The Church of St John the Baptist was built before 1300. It is stylistically and historically the most eclectic building in Bohinj, because it represents the styles from romanticism to baroque.

The area of the church also has a rich history, since archaeological items were found near the church, which date back to the times from the 1st to the 5th centuries.
The house of Tomaž Godec in Bohinjska Bistrica, which used to be a leather workshop, is now a museum (since 1979).

The museum hosts two permanent exhibitions: Leather Museum and Museum of the Isonzo Front during WWI 1915-1917.
