The valley Bistra is surrounded by the peaks Bela peč (1423 m) and Veliki Travnik (1637 m) on southern side, and Oražev hrib (1300 m) and Kneževa špica (1222 m) on northern side. Homesteads are mostly located on the valley bottom, slopes above it are steep and overgrown with a forest. The Bistra’s particularity is a tradition of carinthian beehouses which managed to be preserved right in this area. Some other natural interesting things are old and rare trees; worth seeing are candle-spruces in Ježevi repi. A partisan hospital operated under the peak of Bela peč in the 2nd World War. Nowadays it is renovated and dedicated to the partisan woman Pepca Tomazin.
The village Bistra has a population of 94 people. Two farms run eco-farming; the Replica Cartier Ronde Croisière farm Plaznik is a tourist farm.
