Don’t take my words for granted… check out what others have to say about Lake Bled …
Lake Bled, in the foothills of the Julian Alps, has a magical mountain setting and access to a range of outdoor activities that give it all the appeal of a short break in Switzerland, but without the high prices.
Lake Bled is amazingly beautiful with its clean waters surrounded by the Julian Alps. There is a pretty island in the middle with a centuries-old church on it and it was there that I found my paradise.
Bled was a nominee for seven new wonders of the world. It is easy to see why. A Slovenian song writer once described the alpine landscape around the lake as “this image of paradise”.
The iconic Bled castle, dating from at least 1004 A.D., is perched on a 430-foot cliff overlooking a pristine lake Bled in the middle of woods and mountains.
