Bled Castle Reviews
Blejski Grad Jul 28, 2016
So, when I reached Bled Castle, after climbing many stairs, I wasn't sure if I really wanted to pay the 10€. But then I thought that it would be worth it because of the amazing view. And, of course, the view is A-mazing! Students pay 7€ but they don't get the 1.50€ discount if they buy something, which I thought was not really fair ...
At the same time don't expect too much from the castle especially if you've visited the ones in Prague and/or Budapest because these two have way more to offer than the one in Bled. That being said, I still liked the exhibition, which covered the history of the area starting with the Ice Age up until the 19th century.
I felt the castle had also a very commercialised atmosphere where they not only wanted to sell you stuff like drinks and food at their café, and souvenirs, but also jam, honey, wine and other stuff. That grossed me out a little.
My guide book suggested booking a table at the castle restaurant because you don't have to pay the 10€ to get in, just your meal, which range between 15-20€. This way you get to eat and visit the castle.
