BLED – A JEWEL AMONG THE ALPS
CREATE MEMORIES IN THE IDYLLIC ALPINE GEM
The eternal allure of Bled lies in its magical lake, a shimmering body of crystal-clear water embraced by a necklace of snow-capped Alpine peaks. Atop the lake reigns Slovenia’s only island, crowned by a 15th-century chapel safely guarding its wishing bell, while high above it broods a mighty medieval castle.
Be inspired by Bled’s mild climate, fresh air, plentiful sunshine, clean water and tranquil serenity. Look out at the lake from a castle on a cliff, visit the island on a traditional “pletna” boat, take a trip around the lake with the coachmen “Fijaker” and treat yourself with the traditional Bled cream cake.
Bled and its surrounding area, much of which falls within the Triglav National Park, ensure plentiful opportunities for spending an active day in the great outdoors, including golf on one of the most beautiful courses in Europe, white-water rafting, cycling and hiking. Recently, Bled’s ambitious and cosmopolitan chefs, who like to give new interpretations to the typical traditional dishes of the area, have managed to establish themselves among the very best in the country, thus adding to the pleasures of visiting Slovenia’s Alpine pearl.
