Set alongside the glacial lake of the same name, Bled is a resort town at the foot of the Julian Alps. Bled Castle overlooks the lake from its steep cliff-edge and is one of the most popular tourist sites in the country. Dating back to the 11th century, the castle is the oldest in Slovenia and has plenty to see and experience inside its walls.

What to see and do

Lake Bled

The area offers many opportunities for sport and relaxation, from watersports on the lake, to hiking, cycling, fishing, climbing and much more there is something for everyone, including an adventure park for younger guests.

The lake is also famous for its much photographed island, upon which sits the 17th century church of the Assumption. While it is possible to swim there, if you want to visit the church then take a trip on a taditional wooden boat called a 'plenta'; after climbing the 99 steps up to the building visitors can ring the bell in the clocktower 3 times to make a wish.

Vintgar Gorge

The 1.6 km long Vintgar gorge carves its way through the vertical rocks of the Hom and Bort hills and runs alongside the Radovna river with its waterfalls, pools and rapids. The educational trail leads you over wooden bridges and Žumr’s galleries, and ends with a bridge overlooking the mighty 13m Šum waterfall.

Triglav National Park

Slovenia’s only national park covers a huge 880km2 including most of the Julian Alps. Famous for its beautiful uncontaminated landscapes and unusual flora and fauna that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
