The image of the alpine pearl with the Julian Alps on one side and the Karavanke mountain range on the other amazes every time. Bled is one of the most recognisable icons of Slovenia and has also been included on the list of candidates for the new seven wonders of the world. Lonely Planet ranked Bled among the ten top destinations worth visiting.
Ride in a traditional Pletna boat on Lake Bled to reach the only natural lake island in Slovenia and ring the wishing bell in the island’s church. Bled Castle, which stands on the mighty steep cliff above the lake, tells interesting stories from Bled’s past. You take a traditional horse-driven carriage ride around the lake. Catch the most beautiful view of Bled from Ojstrica hill. Relax in pools filled with the water from lake wells, or spoil yourself with a slice of the famous Bled cream cake.
Nature lovers can head off to the wild Vintgar Gorge, explore the cave below Babji Zob with cave guides or boost their adrenaline in adventures at Straža. The best summer refreshment awaits you at the Grajsko kopališče bathing area, which has Blue Flag status and was the first to hold the Slovenia Green sustainable label for regulated beaches.
