Rut, Slovenia. A tiny village on the southern slopes of Bohinj mountains. It features a typical architecture that goes back centuries. There are still well preserved farmhouses, a church of St Lambert and a few beautiful hayracks that are still in use. When you arrive to the village it seems time has stopped.
Although the village is closer to Lake Bohinj, it is more connected to the towns towards Soča river valley and Idrija. This is seen in its architecture which is very different from Lake Bohinj area. The mountains between Rut village and Lake Bohinj are wonderful for hiking. One of the best hikes is definitely the Rodica peak. From the top, one can enjoy 360 views on Slovenian Alps and on a clear day also Adriatic coast.
The most important landmarks of Rut Slovenia village are the ancient Linden tree in front of the St Lambert church and the monumental double hayrack in the beginning of the village. But the true beauty lies in details. In walking around and enjoying little things like neat garden flowers, vegetable gardens and views towards the valley.
Recently I visited this little village. With my family we visited friends and stayed there overnight. All night it was raining heavily. Morning was misty, peaceful and walk around the village was delight. There was no living soul around except for a few cows and birds.
