  • The closest supermarket is either in Zgornje Gorje or in Bohinjska Bistrica, both around 15 minutes from Pokljuka. We recommend that you already bring all of the necessities with you since there is no food or drink in the apartment.
  • The water on the Pokljuka plateau is drinkable.
  • On Pokljuka plateau there is a lot of snow in the winter, so do not be surprised if you have to pick up a shovel during your vacation.
