The inside story
Lake Bled is one of the most important touristic attractions of Slovenia but remains quite unknown compared to other European locations. The glacial lake is situated in a picturesque natural environment, surrounded by forests and mountains right in the Julian Alpes. This is a perfect destination for visitors looking for interesting landmarks not contaminated by mass tourism.
A wonderful idea for a day trip from the capital, Lake Bled is a source of engaging activities for everyone. Hiking lovers will fall in love with the trail around the lake. The total distance is about 6 km and, apart from gorgeous views, it offers many charming spots for a swim. The lake surrounds Bled Island with a colorful village and a pilgrimage church in the middle – if you are here, don’t forget to ring the wishing bell which, according to the local legends, makes all your dreams come true! You can choose to reach the island by rowboat or to hire a plenta – traditional, gondola-like Slovenian boat. If you prefer the exploration from a water perspective, rent a stand-up paddleboard and make a tour along the coastline. After the day rich in activities, go to the Bled Castle and enjoy the panorama of the lake from the terrace with a glass of wine from the castle cellars and the traditional Bled cream cake.
