In Ribčev Laz by Bohinj lake, in a small park, a model of Triglav is located, which is the work of Bohinj painter Valentin Hodnik (1896-1935). His most common motif were Bohinj mountains. Hodnik did not depict the world only realistically, but also humorously. Motifs can be even today seen on postcards.
Model was erected between the year 1931-1932, and for that purpose, three tons of stone were carried to this place, which is otherwise the weight of two average cars.
