Bled Sights

Bled's beginnings go back more than 1,000 years. This small town rich in history has plenty to offer visitors. Just a short drive from Ljubljana, Lake Bled is an ideal day trip. But it's also worth spending more time here. The surrounding mountains reflect on the emerald lake below. A large medieval castle forms the backdrop of the town. The only natural island in all of Slovenia is the highlight of Lake Bled. Set in the middle of the pristine lake, the island houses a 15th century baroque church. It's one of Slovenia's most popular tourist attractions. But the castle is only one reason to visit Lake Bled.

Bled Tourism

Visiting Lake Bled is one of our favorite things to do in Slovenia. The area is ideal for swimming, rowing, kayaking and rafting. You could also go hiking, enjoy a round of golf, or go fishing at Lake Bled. As a glacial lake, Bled is known for its mild climate and soothing thermal waters. While visiting Lake Bled, a short trip to Bohinj and the largest natural lake in Slovenia shouldn't be missed. Bohinj is less touristy and its surroundings are pristine. If you have time, Kranjska Gora and the Julian Alps are an easy trip. For those with a sweet tooth, Bled's famous Kremsnita pastry will also be sure to satisfy.

"We had a great holiday in Slovenia and Croatia thanks to JayWay Travel. Right from the planning stage then working out the local arrangements, to on the ground support. Once there, Antonia was like a personal tour manager, always monitoring our progress and ever ready to help with anything we needed assistance with."

What I love about Bled...

“This quaint lake town just a short drive outside of Ljubljana provides an amazing getaway for a few days. Definitely do not miss visiting the 11th Century castle that watches over the lake, or simply taking a stroll around the lake and exploring what the town has to offer.”
