Bled Overview

Blejsko Jezero (Lake Bled) is located in northwestern Slovenia, in the middle of the Julian Alps and surrounded by picturesque mountains and forests. Bled Castle, a Medieval structure, reputed to be the oldest castle in Slovenia, overlooks the lake itself and the town of Bled. Horse-drawn carriages clip-clop along the promenade while swans glide on the water. On a minuscule island in the middle of the lake the lovely Cerkov svetega Martina (St. Martin's Pilgrimage Church) stands within a circle of trees. Take a ride over to the island on a pletna, an old-fashioned canopied wooden boat similar to a Venetian gondola. Bled is small enough to cover on foot; a walk around the lake won't take much longer than an hour or two.
Walking and coaching trails around the lake, traditional boats, ringing the island’s wishing bell, the castle treasures, the nearby ski pistes, mountain trails, golf courses, hunting, fishing, the casino, congress facilities – all these are but fragments of Bled’s attraction, which is truly worth experiencing.And don't forget to try local sweet called Kremsnita, the bes you can get at Šmon's.
