The Giants of Bohinj

The Bohinj valley is so big and vast that once there was room for giants to roam. And many thousands of years ago they did just that. In the region north of Lake Bohinj, where the Ribnica Stream has cut a valley between two big hills, there lived a family of giants who ruled the land around it. The two brothers stood on opposing hills, one on Studor Hill and the other on Rudnica Hill. Between them they shared one whetstone, using it to sharpen the massive scythes they used to cultivate their crops and keep the grass cut clean and smooth across the whole valley. Their sister stood astride the Ribnica Stream, one foot firmly planted on each hill as she scrubbed their dirty clothes in the fast flowing water with a washboard.
