Often described as the 'Image of Paradise', the Alpine resort town of Bled will enchant you with its emerald-green lake, fairytale-like island and imposing castle reigning on top of a rocky cliff.
What to Expect
Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region. With its emerald-green waters, picture perfect postcard church on the island, a medieval castle on the rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps as the background. Lake Bled is a place you should not miss. Take a short walk along the lake shore. The beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects on the lake surface. Throrought the seasons visitors will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air.
Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100m above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper.
You can take the 'pletna' boat to the lake island from the shore. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the 'pletna' boat is a real thrill.
Upon returning from the island you will probably be tired. Stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years they have sold as many as 12 million cream cakes.
