The extremely rich flora in the wider area of Bohinj has long aroused interest among botanical experts and the admiration of all lovers of nature and its beauty. Ever since the first scientific studies of Slovenian flora, the mountains above Bohinj have been famous for their treasure trove of alpine flowers. In order to recognize the true value of the floral diversity of Bohinj, Triglav National Park, and Slovenia as a whole to encourage people to learn about alpine flowers, scientific knowledge, and creativity associated with it, and in order to provide visitors and locals a richer experience of the natural and cultural heritage in Bohinj, we decided to dedicate a few days to the topic of flowers during the peak of wildflower blooming season: from botanical knowledge to folk traditions, from artistic creativity to recognition. This produced the idea of the International Wild Flower Festival in Bohinj.
