A girl at the statue of Zlatorog near lake Bohinj in Slovenia. Goldhorn or Goldenhorn (Slovene: Zlatorog) is a legendary white chamois buck, or in some Slovenian stories the steinbock, who had his realm in the heights of Mount Triglav. The legend is well known throughout Slovenia as well as in Austrian Carinthia, and Italian Friuli-Venezia Giulia. The story about Zlatorog was first written down, adapted to the late Romantic style and published by Karl Deschmann (Karel Dežman) in the Laibacher Zeitung, no. 43, on 21 February 1868. Lake Bohinj (Slovene: Bohinjsko jezero) is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. It is located within the Bohinj Valley of the Julian Alps, in the northwestern Upper Carniola region, and part of Triglav National Park.
